UK – Dr. Who: The Missy Chronicles Signing

Join Cavan Scott, James Goss, Peter Anghelides, and Richard Dinnick, signing THE MISSY CHRONICLES at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Saturday 3rd March from 1 – 2pm.

Know your frenemy.

‘I’ve had adventures too. My whole life doesn’t revolve around you, you know.’

When she’s not busy amassing armies of Cybermen, or manipulating the Doctor and his companions, Missy has plenty of time to kill (literally). In this all new collection of stories about the renegade Time Lord we all love to hate, you’ll discover just some of the mad and malevolent activities Missy gets up to while she isn’t distracted by the Doctor.

So please try to keep up.

Cavan Scott has written for such popular series as Star Wars, Star Trek, Vikings, Warhammer 40,000 and, of course, Doctor Who. He’s the writer of Titan Comic’s ongoing adventures of the Ninth Doctor and was one of the 2016 World Book Day authors.

James Goss has adapted three Doctor Who stories by Douglas Adams for BBC Books (City of Death, The Pirate Planet, and The Krikkitmen). He’s also written several original Doctor Who and Torchwood books and his novel #Haterz is in development as a motion picture.

Peter Anghelides has written novels, audios, and short fiction for BBC Books, Virgin Publishing and Big Finish Productions. Frontier Worlds won Doctor Who Magazine’s Readers’ Poll, and SFX placed The Ancestor Cell in the year’s Top Ten TV tie-ins.

Richard Dinnick is writer of TV, books and comics for the BBC, ITV and Disney writing on Thunderbirds Are Go, Tree Fu Tom and Go Jetters amongst others. He has written books and short stories for Doctor Who, Sherlock Holmes and Stargate.

UK – Three Rooms in Valerie’s Head Launch Party

Writer David Gaffney and artist Dan Berry appear at Gosh Comics to celebrate the launch of their graphic novel Three Rooms in Valerie’s Head on Thursday, the 22nd of February at 7:00 till 9:00 PM!

Three Rooms in Valerie’s Head is “British comedy blended with universal regret, this darkly funny graphic novel uses surreal and beautiful visions to explore the ways we remain haunted by our ex-lovers. Valerie has a rich interior life. Serially unlucky in love, to feel better she imagines that her previous boyfriends are dead and that their bodies are kept downstairs in the cellar in a strange, mummified state. Every day she brings them upstairs and speaks to them about what went wrong. What follows is a series of peculiar and funny, and sometimes disturbing short tales about inept lovers, weird obsessions, and socially malfunctioning men who repeatedly fail to build a relationship with poor Valerie.”

David Gaffney’s funny, sad, strange, and very short fiction has been entertaining and moving us since his first collection, Sawn-Off Tales was published in 2006. He’s since written all sorts of things, from novels to narratives in the form of cat posters. Dan Berry’s gorgeous watercoloured comics and illustrations have been a favourite for years, so we’re pleased as punch to have their first collaboration launched here with us on the 22nd of February, at 7 pm and we hope you can join us!
