Elizabeth Sandifer created Eruditorum Press. She’s not really sure why she did that, and she apologizes for the inconvenience. She currently writes Last War in Albion, a history of the magical war between Alan Moore and Grant Morrison. She used to write TARDIS Eruditorum, a history of Britain told through the lens of a ropey sci-fi series. She also wrote Neoreaction a Basilisk, writes comics these days, and has ADHD so will probably just randomly write some other shit sooner or later. Support Elizabeth on Patreon.

    Perfect, I can complete my TARDIS Eruditorum collection (I was missing volumes 2 and 3). Merry Christmas and thanks for running this blog.

    That’s a generous and tempting discount. I love how your magickal response to the imminent eschaton manifests as barely closeted capitalism Doctor Phil. 😉

    Thanks also for answering my Boxing Day question even though the answer was, inevitably, depressing.

    May I wish you and all the Eruditoriumistas a much happier new year than the one we’ve just had.

    I concede that you aren’t my dancing monkey, but I only came over to this site to find out when I can get Tardis Eruditorum Vol 7. That was months ago! I understand it’s all mostly written and you just need to put it together into a book.
    Vols 1-6 were very weird. I enjoyed them tremendously. But after Vol 7 would be a much better break point than before Vol 7.

      I’ve answered this elsewhere, but basically, although yes, I have a near-finished first draft of Volume 7, there’s still a huge amount of work between that and a finished book. I need to

      1) Write about 10,000 words of new material that has to be fitted amidst weekly blogging, Last War in Albion, finishing the Neoreaction a Basilisk book, and any other projects I’m working on.
      2) Do a revision pass on all of it. Volume 7 will be the longest volume to date, so that’s no small feat.
      3) Have an external copyeditor do a pass on all of it. This takes several months.
      4) Do another revision pass.
      5) Another round of edits too.
      6) Have James do a cover.

      This process didn’t get started in 2016 because most of the year was eaten by Last War in Albion and my writing Neoreaction a Basilisk.

      So mid-2017 is the answer to your question.

      It’s not a matter of break points – I’m not expecting the gap between Volume 7 and Volume 8 to be unusually large or anything. It’s a matter of “I’m a one man operation and TARDIS Eruditorum isn’t the only thing on my plate.” Bottlenecks happen.

      But thank you for your very kind concession that I’m not your dancing monkey.

        I’m a little too old to be fan-squeeing at your generous reply, but the impulse definitely exists.
        In case you doubted, the dancing monkey remark was meant with humor and admiration.
