Publisher's summary Edit

Late 2562. Bernice Summerfield is twenty-two and en route to the ruin of Earth. She's young, she's single, she's just got an MA in archaeology. There's a life of adventure in front of her. And then she meets the half-human, half-lemur Ivo, whose life she'll completely knock sideways. Late 2607. Professor Bernice Summerfield is... well she looks nearly forty, but it's difficult to tell what with all the time travel. She's on her way to a funeral, and to meet up with people she's not seen since her twenties. Ex-husband / current-beau Jason is keen to go with her. Benny never talks about that period of her life — what she did to keep out of the war, where she travelled, how she survived, or who it was broke her heart. She's run through all time and space to avoid this reunion. But the best-selling author of Down Among the Dead Men must finally uncover her own past.

Notes Edit

  • While the first and final novellas are contemporary with the other Bernice Summerfield stories, Cheating the Reaper takes place after Genius Loci and before Love and War, prior to Bernice's adventures in time with the Seventh Doctor. These two stories are unofficially known[by whom?] as the "Young Bernice Summerfield Adventures".
