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.

    I have to admit, I enjoyed "Face of the Enemy" when I read it, but was afraid to pick it up again in case, like with "War of the Daleks", it turned out in fact to be awful. Glad to see my faith in McIntee was not entirely misplaced. 🙂

    "McIntee doing a much defter job of exploring his personal life than Gary Russell earlier managed"
    This may be a pure reflex reaction, but I have to say it: Yes, but Grussel is awful. I call for the prosecution "Spiral Scratch", but honestly any of his 'novels' will do.

    Incidentally, will you be covering "Interference" when we get to "Spiders", or when we get to the EDAs? If it is an EDA…

    I like leaving what the upcoming Time Can Be Rewrittens will be as a surprise. I figure a relatively small proportion of my readers are familiar with the material, and I like the fact that I have people trying to guess which ones I'll pick. 🙂

    I'd really like to read this one.

    Love the explanation of WHY this one works so well, hadn't realised that before.

    As for the next one of these: based on previous clues, I'm gonna say it's either Verdigris or The Wages of Sin.

    Oh Verdigris is a given, I don't see a way Phil can resist that book. But I too am curious whether the third Doctor sections of Interference will be covered- the intentional way Lawrence Miles tries to make that adventure just feel wrong for the 3rd Doctor era seems very much in line with the themes this blog likes exploring.

    "I vaguely recall reading an interview somewhere in which he admitted to not being very familiar with the characters and not quite knowing what to do with them"

    I don't think that can have been about Ian and Barbara – maybe another book (Autumn Mist? McGann only had 40 minutes of screen time) or else some alternative casting (Ben and Polly)?

    Tiny proofreading point, on the off chance that you haven't yet gone over these entries for the Pertwee book: the lines about Ian and Barbara's fertility issues aren't discrete (separate), they're discreet (showing modesty and prudence).
