Every week, a Forbidden Planet newsletter drops into the Kasterborous inbox and occasionally it brings news from time and space.
This week, it brings us news that renowned science fiction author Stephen Baxter will be appearing at Forbidden Planet’s London Megastore on Sunday 19th August to sign copies of his new Past Doctor Adventure, The Wheel Of Ice.
Here’s a shortened synopsis:
The Wheel. A ring of ice and steel turning around a moon of Saturn, and home to a mining colony supplying a resource-hungry Earth. The colony has been plagued by problems…the equipment failures and thefts of resources have been increasing, and there have been stories among the children of mysterious creatures glimpsed aboard the Wheel. Aboard the Wheel, the Doctor, Jamie and Zoe find a critical situation – and they are suspected by some as the source of the sabotage. They soon find themselves caught in a mystery that goes right back to the creation of the solar system. A mystery that could kill them all.
The signing will last about an hour or so (1pm to 2pm is the time quoted on the website), and if you can’t make it on the day you can order a signed copy on their website.
