Short Trips: Re:Collections - The Best of Short Trips was an anthology of previously-published Doctor Who short stories in the Big Finish Productions Short Trips series of books. Re:Collections was published in May 2009 as an epitaph to the long-running book series, which Big Finish had discontinued following the BBC not renewing the licence for them to publish original short prose fiction based upon Doctor Who.
In 2010 Big Finish revived the Short Trips concept as an audio drama series.
The book contains 28 short stories, one from each of the 28 Short Trips volumes.
