A roundup of some of the fan productions that have recently been released.
MythMakers 16 - Pseudoscope
The Doctor Who Information Network
presents the 20th anniversary issue of its official fiction anthology, Myth Makers
What happens when events unfold before our eyes that defy our conscious understanding? Is it a dream? An hallucination? An optical illusion? What hidden truths would our subconscious mind perceive? Myth Makers 16: Pseudoscope features stories written around the theme of altered perception. In making sense of these distorted realities, the Doctor, his companions and his enemies make new discoveries about the world outside - and within.
Stories by Short Trips alumni Dale Smith, Richard Salter, David N. Smith, Violet Addison, Stephen Hatcher, J.R. Loflin and Mike Amberry, plus Myth Makers alumni J.F. Keeping and Chris Heffernan.
Artwork by Carolyn Edwards, Rachel Roach, Iain Robertson, Michael Leis, Pat Degan and Denise Rajauski.

The Magic Circle
Starring David Warner and Terry Molloy
Professor Dunning (Terry Molloy) is finding the business of single-handedly saving Great Britain from the forces of darkness rather taxing.
And Lionheart? Lionheart is missing.
When the only clue to his disappearance seems to lie in a twenty-year-old murder investigation, Dunning turns to the one man who might have the answers: Lionheart’s erstwhile colleague Harry ‘Thumper’ Crow (David Warner).
Harry doesn’t hold with supernaturalism, but over the next few days he’s going to see some very strange things indeed: a string of murdered magicians, a dead music-hall star come back to life, and a pensioner from the depths of hell.
Can Crow and Dunning find Lionheart? A terrible truth awaits, as they unearth the long-buried secrets of THE MAGIC CIRCLE.
