You’ve got just less than a week now to buy an eBook copy of A Target for Tommy and its sequel – and help out Tommy Donbavand, author of the 2013 Doctor Who novel, Shroud of Sorrow.
The project, by Obverse Books, gathers together an array of Target-esque stories by superb writers including Simon Bucher-Jones, Paul Magrs, Kate Orman, and Andy Frankham-Allen; it’s to support Donbavand and his family as he’s treated for cancer. Some of his income as a writer comes from speaking at educational institutions, which he’s unfortunately unable to do right now, so A Target for Tommy and A Second Target for Tommy aims to help out.
Naturally, the books were immensely popular – so much so that the paperback versions sold out. But until the end of May 2018, you can buy eBooks for £9.99 each.
This is your very last chance.
A Second Target for Tommy is an especially important piece of Doctor Who history, as, for the first time ever, it features the script of an important scene from an early draft of The Day of the Doctor – featuring the Ninth Doctor, Christopher Eccleston! It’s kindly provided by former showrunner, Steven Moffat.
