Free Lethbridge-Stewart Short Story For Easter

Take advantage of a special Easter weekend treat from the good folks at Candy Jar Books and get yourself a free Lethbridge-Stewart short story, The Black Eggs of Khufu by Tom Dexter.
Featuring an ancient alien mystery, camels, explosions and a ‘great egg race’ across the desert, Lauren Thomas, assistant, said:

“We really thought that Tom Dexter’s The Fright Before Christmas had reached its peak. That was until we read his story about the pyramids.”

Candy Jar Books launched the fully licensed Lethbridge-Stewart series in February 2015, with Andy Frankham-Allen’s The Forgotten Son kicking off the venture in style. Three more titles were subsequently released – The Schizoid Earth, Beast of Fang Rock, and Mutually Assured Domination – each met with high praise from fans and the press.
Sadie Miller, daughter of Elisabeth Sladen and Brian Miller, is set to return to the worlds of Doctor Who with her debut Who novel, Moon Blink. Sadie’s book headlines the 2016 series of Lethbridge-Stewart novels, and is published in the spring, followed by Showstoppers! by Jonathan Cooper and The Grandfather Infestation by John Peel. A further three novels will be released in the autumn.
What’s more Candy Jar Books have also announced the release of The HAVOC Files, the collected short stories of 2015, in print for the first time. And as an added bonus the collection also includes a never-before-released story, The Enfolded Time by Andy Frankham-Allen, about which he says:

“I did play with calling this one The Many Brigadiers, as we are in the unique position of being able to deal with the dating issues that plagued Lethbridge-Stewart during his time in Doctor Who. And, to break with tradition, this story is set outside the normal Lethbridge-Stewart narrative, taking place in 1990. It will, hopefully, prove to be a very different kind of story.”

The usual discounted pre-order bundles will be on offer from Candy Jar, with a new subscription deal for those wishing to get six books for the price of five! The Lethbridge-Stewart series of books can now be pre-ordered from Candy Jar Books – and come highly recommended!
Don’t forget to download The Black Eggs of Khufu completely free across Easter weekend.
