wolfsbane & deadly reunion

BBC Books has released the cover blurb for the forthcoming Wolfsbane by Jacqueline Rayner, a Fourth Doctor and Eighth Doctor crossover novel with Sarah Jane and Harry Sullivan, as previously announced. They've also confirmed the title of the November book written by Terrance Dicks and Barry Letts which we announced some months ago -- it'sDeadly Reunion and features the Third Doctor, Jo and UNIT. The blurb for "Wolfsbane" is as follows:

WOLFSBANE by Jacqueline Rayner

Harry is dead. Having left him abandoned and alone in pre-war Britain, the Doctor and Sarah try to solve the mystery of his death. But the only witness is in a lunatic asylum, driven mad by what he has seen. He tells of murder and mutilation, of living trees and long-dead legends, of wolfmen and war... And of a mysterious stranger known only as the Doctor.

Can it be true that Harry discovered the last resting-place of the Holy Grail? Why are the flowers and trees in a Somerset village in full bloom at Christmas? And is it just a coincidence that Harry died under a full moon?
