Babylon 5 was a TV sci fi series that ran for five seasons from 1993 to 1998 and spawned a single season spin-off series called Crusade in 1999 (for which there were no books published).
In the UK Babylon 5 books were published by Boxtree Books. The first nine were in a numbered series.
The subsequent five books comprised of two single novels and the 'Psi Corps' trilogy. All the UK books were also published in the US (sometimes in the previous year) by Ballantine Books under their banner of 'Del Rey'. The UK covers were identical to the US books. In addition Boxtree published five 'Season by Season' books and an 'A to Z' book.

As with other TV Sci Fi programmes, the US had more titles than the UK - the remaining seven titles ("In the Beginning", the "Legions of Fire" trilogy and the "Passing of the Techno-Mages" trilogy) were published in the US only. Del Rey also published the five 'Season by Season' books.

The Science Fiction Bookclub also published a hardback omnibus of the three 'Legions of Fire' trilogy of novels in 2000 and 'The Passing of the Techno-Mages' trilogy in 2002.

The novelisation of the "River of Souls" film, although written and submitted, was unfortunately never published. Possible covers of "River of Souls" are included below.
