After quite a lot of delay, Eruditorum Press is proud to announce the release of TARDIS Eruditorum Volume 7: Sylvester McCoy. Adapted from a blog about Doctor Who I imagine you’ve heard of, this is the revised version of my essays on the final years of the original television show and the first phase of the Wilderness Years, the Virgin New Adventures. Over 600 pages it covers every televised Sylvester McCoy episode and the highlights of the Virgin line. It’s also got a huge bevy of book-exclusive essays, including new ones on Nightshade and The Pit, an essay on Lloyd Rose’s The Algebra of Ice, an essay on the recent Seventh Doctor comics by Andrew Cartmel, and a bunch of essays on arcane points of Doctor Who continuity like “When Was the Time War?” and “Was He Half-Woven on His Mother’s Side?”
It’s a big, epic book that was very hard to get together, and that I’m very proud of in spite of its troubled gestation. And it’s very much available as a holiday gift for the extreme nerd in your life.
If you backed it on Kickstarter and filled out your survey promptly you already have a copy. If you were slow in filling out your survey, please check Kickstarter for updates.

I hope you enjoy it.
Some other orders of business while I have your attention. Christine’s Patreon has dipped to $286 since the pledge drive earlier this year. I politely remind you that I will only be reviewing Revolution of the Daleks if that goes over $300 again. I would very much like to not review Revolution of the Daleks, but somewhat annoyingly I would prefer my daughter be able to pay her rent even more.
Also, check back tomorrow for an actual essay by me—a standalone piece on liberal science fiction, a term I promise you I am not using how you expect.
