So, a little over a year ago, my friend and colleague Bjorn forwarded a link to me about a publisher looking for some (semi) academic essays about everyone’s favorite BBC time traveler, Doctor Who. Lacking my own share of self-confidence, I hit up another friend and colleague, Dr. Michelle Hansen, to co-write a piece with me. Since we couldn’t decide on any one topic, we pitched two, figuring to double our odds of being accepted.
It worked! It worked so well in fact, they accepted both pitches and we found ourselves with not one, but two pieces in the book, New Worlds, Terrifying Monsters, Impossible Things: Exploring the Contents and Contexts of Doctor Who. The book is available as an ebook from Amazon as well as other sites. My hope is that you’ll check it out and leave a review (hopefully a good one). There’s some really great, insightful pieces inside and if you’re a Whovian or a pop culture fanatic or just a friend to either Michelle or me, this is a book for you.
