Out Now: Shadow of the Gallifreyan, Featuring Stories by Doctor Who Companion Writers!

A new charity collection from Altrix Books is out now, and includes stories by The Doctor Who Companion writers, alongside many many more!

Shadow of the Gallifreyan: Book One revisits characters from Doctor Who episodes after the Doctor has gone — how has the Time Lord affected lives? For good or ill? What are the consequences of that blue box landing in the vicinity?

This is a charity book, raising funds for Shelter, and is part one of a two-book series.

Shadow of the Gallifreyan includes stories by numerous DWC contributors: Andrew Hsieh, James Baldock, Jon Arnold, Peter Shaw, and me, as well as one of my close friends, Rob Murlis.

Here’s the blurb:

‘The Doctor can make heroes of us all’.

In the far distant future a team of post-human researchers are looking for evidence of the Doctor’s existence. These are their findings, a collection of documents and stories relating to the Time Lord’s many adventures across time and space. They provide a record of what happened next to those who encountered them, the lasting impressions the Doctor made on their lives whether good, bad or indifferent. Often the Doctor is gone without a trace, but their shadow looms large over those who are left behind to pick up the pieces and move on.

This is an unofficial anthology from Altrix Books, written in aid of Shelter and edited by Paul Driscoll and Kara Dennison.

The book also features contributions from Abdel Bedair, Andrew Blair, Andrew Davis, Brendan O’Shea, Callum Phillpott, Charles Martin, Charles Murphy, Chris Hawton, Chris Kocher, Chris McAuley, Chris Thomas, Christa Mactire, Christopher Bryant, Christopher Stone, Claudia Christian, Dewi Small, Don Klees, Elizabeth Allen, Evan Jones, Gary Mack, Gladys Spume, Greg Maughan, Heather McHale, Ian Wheeler, Isabel Pelech, Jackie Green, James Hornby, James McGrath, James Mulholland, Jenny Shirt, Jerry Snook, Kara Dennison, Kenton Hall, Kyle Borcz, Lee Rawlings, M.A Reid-Lobatto, Madeline Wahl, Matthew Kresal, Max Conley, Michael Collins, Michael Crouch, Mike Morgan, Nathan Mullins, Ned Netherwood, Paul Briscoe, Paul Burns, Paul Driscoll, Paul Hiscock, Rachel Redhead, Rob Nisbet, Robert Cumming, Ross Hamilton, Ryan Bradley, Sean Dillon, Simon Brett, Stephen Hatcher, Thomas Beech, Trina Eke, and Vince Stadon.

And look how cool that cover is!
