Telos Publishing has announced a new book from writer and researcher David J Howe.
The Who Adventures looks at the ranges of Doctor Who titles published by Virgin Publishing in the early 1990s and contains a history of the range, as well as many pieces of the cover art, reproduced as full-page items.
It also includes sketches and unused art and covers everything you could want to know about the Doctor Who fiction published by Virgin.
David J Howe explained
Last year, in lockdown, and with the absence of anything else to do, I started going through and organising all the material, reviewing the text, and generally pulling it all together into something which could be released as a new book!
'It's the ultimate guide to the Virgin New Adventures and Missing Adventures ranges of books, which saw several authors, including Russell T Davies, Ben Aaronovitch and Mark Gatiss publishing early works of original fiction!
Stephen James Walker, Director of Telos Publishing, said
The New Adventures books are one of my own personal favourite 'eras' of Doctor Who, and I know that many other fans have very fond memories of them and hold them in the highest regard. Not only does The Who Adventures give an authoritative account of the books' history, with a lot of fascinating information, but it also presents a wealth of superb images, including full-page reproductions of many the original cover paintings, plus preliminary design sketches and ideas, and much additional material.
A sumptuous coffee-table-style book in full colour, it aims to be the ultimate celebration of a hugely important part of the Doctor Who phenomenon.
The book is available to preorder now direct from Telos Publishing - telos.co.uk - and is expected to be available in December 2021.
