Publisher's summary Edit
For 35 years the Doctor's adventures have been showcased on television, in comics, novels, videos, cereal packets and more recently on the internet.
This project, timed to be released to celebrate this anniversary, has brought together some of the very best "Who" writers. Some names may already be familiar to you, some should hopefully become so in the near future!
For this collection, they have all kindly donated original stories, poems and drabbles featuring the Doctor, his companions, and his world, from all eras of the show, and from the books - stories from the Doctor's past, present (and future!)
35 pieces to celebrates 35 years of time travel -- including:
H. P. Lovecraft finds out that life can be stranger than fiction...
The Eighth Doctor visits some old friends, and pays a return visit to Tombstone, Arizona...
A Future Doctor faces an old enemy -- and a personal pain...
