AUTHOR'S NOTE 2: Although I have changed "The Mirror Shattered" to novella form, I am still going to be writing and creating (I now have the ability to create trailers on my own!) trailers. In fact, I have a new trailer in production at the moment. I won't be releasing the script for it, however, until it has been released. But believe me, the wait is going to be worth it. ;-)

AUTHOR'S NOTE 1: The release date provided in the trailer script is NOT REAL. Also, if you would like to see a video version of this trailer, Brian Greene has graciously taken the time to transform the trailer script into an actual visual trailer. You may download the .wmv file at (take out the spaces): http : // www . quantumleap - alsplace . com Look under "Fan Fiction" -- courtesy of Brian Greene, webmaster of "Al's Place"

You may also find the screenplay/story on its website at (take out the spaces): http : // themirrorshattered . cjb . net

You will also find a cast page with pictures and a picture page featuring promotional posters I am creating for the screenplay.

SPECIAL DISCLAIMER: The scene featuring Bartender Al and Sam is taken directly from the episode "Mirror Image", and THUS BELONGS TO DONALD P. BELLISARIO. NO COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT IS INTENDED. As I am fully stating where the dialogue has come from, I do not believe this to be plagiarism. Furthermore, the only way the screenplay/story can be effective is as it has been written, including the scene in this trailer.

DISCLAIMER: "The Mirror Shattered" trailer and screenplay/story written by R. Joy Helvie. "Quantum Leap", Dr. Samuel Beckett, Admiral Albert Calavicci, Al the Bartender, and all other characters which may have appeared on the show are property of Donald P. Bellisario, Belisarius Productions, and Universal Studios. All other characters are property of R. Joy Helvie, and permission must be granted by the author before the characters can be used in any other story.
