Realised this morning that though I’ve mentioned it a couple of times, I don’t have a proper official omg-it’s-out-yay! post for my recently released book on The Ambassadors of Death:
Ambassadors, if you don’t know, is a classic Doctor Who story, made in 1970, and is one of my very favourite of all Who goodness. And the lovely people at Obverse Books have started a range of non-fiction releases where each book (novella length: 20-40 thousand words each) goes into some serious depth about the writer’s chosen story.
The first four books in the range have just come out, covering The Massacre (top notch William Hartnell historical from the sixties), Rose (the very first episode of New Who), Dark Water/Death in Heaven (the finale of Peter Capaldi’s first season), and my own Ambassadors of Death, where I flail about Liz Shaw, the Doctor/companion relationship dynamics, villains who know how to get the job done, scary spacesuited aliens, and the British space programme.
Congrats to my fellow writers on their own releases, and huge thanks to the range editor (and writer of the Dark Water/Death in Heaven entry) Philip Purser-Hallard for his fab work on my book, and the smashing work done by the cover artists, Blair Bidmead and Cody Schell. (Look! There’s a space helmet on the front! :D)
They’re all available at the Obverse Books site, and, should you be so inclined, you can buy them in a bundle as well as individually. I’m really excited to be a part of this range, and hope if you’re a Who fan you’ll give it a shot.
Until next time; farewell, delicious readers!
