Book Relaunch From Space
I’m pleased to announce that, just in time for the holiday season, the third volume of TARDIS Eruditorum is officially back in print. Covering every story of the Jon Pertwee era and then some, the book is the most comprehensive take on early 70s UK culture ever to use the words “Gel Guards,” “Venusian Akido,” and “Pertwee death pose.” And it includes my mildly legendary essay “This Point of Singularity (The Three Doctors),” a pataphoric Blakean odyssey that Paul Cornell once read out loud at a convention to an audience including what I can only assume was a deeply puzzled and slightly alarmed Terrence Dicks.
Speaking of Paul Cornell, the book has been spruced up with a new essay on Paul Cornell’s Third Doctor comics for Titans, a way better name on the cover, and some minor improvements to the typesetting (as well as the removal of a line about making Doctor Who great again that had… not aged well). It’s the perfect gift for the most glam Doctor Who fan in your life. And if you don’t have a glam Doctor Who fan in your life you can read it on public transport until someone with incredible makeup and glittery clothes comes up to you and says “great jumping Jehoshaphat, is that TARDIS Eruditorum?” And if that never happens, at just shy of 400 pages it’s pretty effective for throwing at the creepy men who will try to talk to you instead.
You can get it at the following links:
Smashwords (for other e-readers)
And if you are in the market for a very geeky Christmas present, I’d be remiss if I didn’t link TARDIS Eruditorum Volume 1, on the William Hartnell era, and TARDIS Eruditorum Volume 2, on the Troughton era. And if you’re looking for something a bit more apocalyptic for your beloved, there’s always Neoreaction a Basilisk, a work of horror philosophy about the alt-right.
And just to really shovel the goodies on, I’ll be back tomorrow with a brand spanking-new chapter of The Last War in Albion. 14000 words of magical war, superhero comics, and kinky sex.

If I already have the ebook on Smashwords, will it be automatically updated (it doesn’t seem to be yet), or do I need to buy it again?

Should be fixed now; please let me know.

It’s the updated version when I download it now, so everything seems to be in order. Thanks!

Looking forward to new Last War in Albion.
Just FYI, http://www.eruditorumpress.com/books is out of date; it doesn’t reflect the new revisions. Among other things it still has everything under your old name.

I’m trying to get the new edition off of Amazon and onto my kindle. It displays as the new edition with the Elizabeth name, but no matter what I do to try and get it on my kindle I just get the outdated original version, lacking the name change and new essay.
I’ve tried downloads and a direct USB, but I only get the old edition.
I’m not sure if it’s an issue with the book itself, or with my old kindle at this point.

Nevermind, was my problem, got it fixed now.

How did you get it to work? I’ve tried removing it from my devices and from my library and even purchasing them again and I still get the old version showing up…

Ditto; I still haven’t even been able to get #2 to update, either.
