OT: Doctor Who: Short Trips: The Quality of Leadership

If I may borrow this forum for a brief OT announcement that does really-o-truly-o connect to Trek lit.....

I've finally gotten the okay to announce the table of contents for the Doctor Who: Short Trips anthology I'm editing called The Quality of Leadership. That list includes several folk familiar to the world of Trek lit...

First off, both Peter David and Diane Duane are making their professional Who fiction debuts in this anthology -- I am both stunned that they hadn't done anything prior to this and thrilled that I got to be the one to hire them to do it.

The rest of the list includes other Trek authors -- John S. Drew, Allyn Gibson, Robert T. Jeschonek, Una McCormack, Terri Osborne, James Swallow, and Richard C. White -- as well as Kathleen O. David, Linnea Dodson, and Steven Savile.

Find out more at the post I made on my blog.

We now return you to your Trek lit board, already in progress....

Re: OT: Doctor Who: Short Trips: The Quality of Leadership

Do all the stories feature the Eighth Doctor or is he drawing from memories of his previous regens as well?

Re: OT: Doctor Who: Short Trips: The Quality of Leadership

Each of the first eight Doctors are represented at least once, worry not.

Re: OT: Doctor Who: Short Trips: The Quality of Leadership

But why not the Ninth and Tenth Doctors?

Either way, I'll probably check this out. Peter David and Doctor Who? Count me in!

^ Because Big Finish's license only covers the first eight. Nine and Ten are the exclusive domain of BBC Books.

Ah, I figured it must have been something like that but my stupid brain couldn't pull out the word "license."

Cool. I've just been getting into Big Finish's radio plays recently. Listen to them at work. This book will be right up my street.

Re: OT: Doctor Who: Short Trips: The Quality of Leadership

^ Er, the TOC is not all Americans, and it should also be added that plenty of Americans (myself included) have contributed to Short Trips in the past.

But Una McCormack, James Swallow, and Steve Savile are all Brits, and Diane Duane has lived in Ireland for over 20 years now.

More to the point, all thirteen of us are huge Who fans.

Can't get a bigger Whovian than me KRAD! I just like twisting the knife... We are very protective of our Doctor in the UK.

We can't be that protective. We're still letting Russell T Davis write crap finales and specials.
