Crikey, we’re getting through the Doctor’s 50th birthday like he has no more bodies to regenerate into. It seems like only yesterday that we were all anticipating that start of 2013 and now, suddenly, we’re only 5 months away from the Big Weekend that leads up to 23rd November.
Alongside other merchandise releases in June, Kasterborous is delighted that one of the New York Times and USA Today’s best selling authors, Richelle Mead, will be the writer for the Sixth Doctor eBook release, Something Borrowed. This book continues the series of short stories that are being released every month, culminating in November 2013 with the Eleventh Doctor.
Watch Mead introduce the video below.
Those of you not familiar with Mead may want to have a look at examples of her other works of fiction which include the Vampire Academy and the Dark Swan series.
Mead has been described as an urban fantasist and you can discover a little more about her as well as her reasons for choosing to write this particular novel, her thoughts on the different characters that the Doctor has been and a small teaser from her book that may get Sixth Doctor fans excited, by checking out the YouTube video above. You can also read an excerpt on the Guardian website, or just pre-order from Amazon ahead of the June 21st release, for just £1.99!
As don’t forget, Something Borrowed follows on from short stories by Eoin Colfer, Michael Scott, Marcus Sedgwick, Philip Reeve and Patrick Ness. A paperback anthology of the eleven eshorts, The Doctor Who Collection: 50th Anniversary will be published, alongside the final eshort featuring the Eleventh Doctor, on 23 November 2013.
