This eBook Edition
Unlike the web version, this eBook edition does not have separate files for each chapter, instead all of the chapters for each part are held in a single file. This is primarily to reduce the number of files to a more manageable number. The text has been edited to be more suitable for reading on a PDA screen, so indents, white space and title positions have been modified, and page links removed. The story text itself has been left unchanged. If you notice any errors caused by the re-formatting for this eBook edition, or any problems on this page
These eBook editions are based on an extract of http://www.b5-dark-mirror.demon.co.uk/ taken on March 3 2003, with the entire story published except for the Volume 5 synopsis.

If you would like a copy of the Mac/Unix plain text, iSilo or TCR files,
and I will send them to you via e-mail. If you require plain text files, please tell me which operating system you are using and I will send the appropriate Mac or Unix text files. The TCR and Mac text files will be send as 5 zip files, one per volume. The Unix text files will be sent as 5 gzipped tar files, one per volume. If this is inconvenient, let me know and I will see what I can do.
If you would like versions formatted for the page, your best starting point is the original web edition. Please see the "Formatting and printouts" section of the Introduction on the main web site.
