    Yoink! Ordered (UK Kindle version, in case you're keeping track). I look forward to diving back into these again…

    It's time I bought your Hartnell book. I can't keep putting it off.

    I'm glad you managed to do something with yourself despite the career disappointment.

    You know, Phil, I feel for you because I found myself in the same position. I did a PhD in theology and realised before I had graduated that academic jobs are just too few. I managed to find another career helping alcoholics and drug users. Not a career I had ever dreamed of, but I enjoy it.

    I don't know what opportunities are available to you, but don't be afraid to try something different if you can.

    Now bought both books. Thank the British taxpayers for funding my drug and alcohol service.

    Thank you back! I've ordered both Kindle and paperback version. What a fantastic cover; I'll for sure order the Hartnell version with the new cover too.

    I'm sorry to see no Pop Between Realities on It Happened Here — any chance of getting that into the revised Hartnell volume too? It really is a tremendously important piece of the puzzle.

    Is the Massacre essay you left out of the Hartnell book on accident included in this one? You were planning to do that, but I just wanted to check you hadn't forgotten.

    Regardless, I'll pick up a paper copy in a couple days.

    Done and done. Really enjoyed the Hartnell posts and the book so I'm looking forward to reaquainting myself with your Troughton musings. Good luck with finding gainful employment which uses your talents to the full. I know how that feels, I'm a qualified drama teacher looking for work at the moment but recession cuts mean drama is not considered a subject that deserves funding.

    Of course I bought it. Heck, I've already finished the thing (and a great piece of work it was, I have to say). Will definitely be getting the print edition as well, partially because I am a compeltionist but also that cover is too amazing to only have on my laptop screen.

    Got it for my Kindle; I may break down and get the dead tree version starting with the next one. The lack of the Massacre entry kept me from doing that with the the first one, and since you make the same money either way it didn't seem to matter otherwise.

    Particularly liked the "What Ought Be Found?" essay; it's one of the first times I can recall looking at the question on the basis of "which episodes would tell us the most" as opposed to "what do we most want to see".

    On a note related to the updated Underwater Menace article: There are actually some more brief clips on the Krotons DVD; although nothing as impressive as the one scene that's out at large. By the way, we all need to give Phil due credit on that one: He called that scene as key before the find.

    Just bought the smashwords epub for reading on my new iPad. The artwork is indeed gorgeous. Can't wait to dig in to the text. I don't comment a lot but your blog is one of my first stops whenever I open the RSS reader. Happy to support in whatever small way I can.

    Oddly, had just finished rereading the Hartnell book this week, and wished the second volume was out. Nice to see not everything's going so bad this week. Love the cover, bought and bought.

    Just bought both volumes (dead tree editions) on amazon.com.

    Very much looking forward to revisiting the wonderful essays from the earlier days of the Blog, and finding all the new stuff and the revised entries. Two print volumes is a fantastic achievement, and I'm looking forward to all the rest as they appear!

    Can't let the utterly gorgeous cover art for volume 2 pass unnoticed. Outstanding work. The second volume looks every bit as amazing on the outside as both volumes are on the inside. You definitely need to keep ahold of Mr Taylor!

    Just bought this on Smashwords. I wish the first book had been available in epub form when it was first released, but I'm very much looking forward to this.

    I bought the Hartnell edition few months ago and seeing the post on Friday as soon as I got home from a trip I order the Kindle version of the Troughton one. I look forward to reading the new one.

    I've been enjoying the blog for several months now, so felt it was time to do my bit. I've just bought both volumes, and I'm looking forward to reading them in their expanded forms.

    Keep writing, I'll keep supporting!

    Order delayed because they ran out of copies of both books. Looks like a few people placed an order..

    That's… very strange, given that the book is print-on-demand.

    I'm guessing there's a limit on how many they can print in a day – doesn't mean there's a rush on this one (though there might be), but there might be a rush for on demand books as a whole as they likely share printing resources.

    My physical copy arrived yesterday, after a similar email announcing a delay.

    Is there some significance to the last paragraph or two of the chapters in the first half being centred rather than left-justified? It is so consistently done it looks deliberate.


  26. Elizabeth Sandifer
    October 4, 2012 @ 4:05 am

    I wish there were, but no, it's Microsoft Word's bizarre tendency to maintain the formatting on consecutive paragraphs across a page break, so when I centered a chapter title it went back and centered the last page of the preceding paragraph. I noticed it happen about a dozen times during formatting. Apparently I also didn't notice it happen once.
