Dear Mr. Straczynski,

I have been entranced by a television program for five years, but I don't
want to thank you for B5.

I want to thank you for your integrity, your courage, and your
perseverance. I want to thank you for bringing intelligence, thought, and
a remarkable amount of depth to televison.

Thank you for your knowledge of the classics and for your incredible gifts
of synthesis and storytelling. Thank you for ancient archetypes and
Aeschylian motifs made to speak to the present from the future.

But most of all, thank you for daring to share these gifts and for five
years of hard work.

As some dead guy used to say, "Ipse quidem pretium virtus sibi."
(Virtue is its own reward.)

Jennifer Guillory

Thank you, and I hope that someday I can be worthy of such wonderful words and
comparisons.  But to my eyes, I still got a long, long way to go to keep
getting better as a writer.
