A Charity Short Story Collection

Twelve Doctors.

Twelve windows onto the universe. And the Doctor’s life is the history of the universe.

The TEMPORAL LOGBOOK is the telling of that history. From the myths of Ancient Greece to the depths of unknown space, from the life of Lewis Carroll to the horrors of the Black Death, The TEMPORAL LOGBOOK recounts some of the Doctor’s most enthralling journeys during his first eleven incarnations, as told by a selection of Doctor Who fandom’s best writers.

The TEMPORAL LOGBOOK features stories from Michael Baxter, J.E. Remy, Benjamin Pocock, Craig Charlesworth, Hannah Parry, Ian Larkin, Sarah Parry, Nick Mellish, Hamish Crawford, Paul Silvester, Michael Itig and Meg MacDonald.

Edited by Robert Mammone, Jez Strickley & Bob Furnell

Just a quick note to let those of you who are interested in our first charity Doctor Who short-story collection, The Temporal Logbook, that further updates on the project will be found by following the project’s blog at http://www.thetemporallogbook.wordpress.com.  The blog will contain updates and news as it happens with regards to the project.

The Temporal Logbook Launched

A Doctor Who short story collection

Pencil Tip Publishing is pleased to announce the unofficial Doctor Who charity short-story collection, The Temporal Logbook.

It’s been said that Doctor Who has one of the most flexible formats in television drama. With the basic premise of an alien who travels throughout space and time in a box that is bigger inside than out, and which is disguised as a 1960s police public call box, it can’t get much simpler than that. One week the show can be a gothic horror, the next it can be a comedic satire, while the next it could be a base-under-siege thriller – the possibilities are endless.

The Temporal Logbook is a new short-story collection featuring original Doctor Who fiction by new and upcoming writers. The stories will involve the first eleven television Doctors, in a series of exciting adventures across space and time. The collection will be published by Canadian publisher Pencil Tip Publishing. 100% of the proceeds from this publication will be donated to our chosen charity Positive Living Society of British Columbia (formerly BC Persons with AIDS Society) http://www.positivelivingbc.org.

Blog Created In Support of The Temporal Logbook


We have created a new blog in support of the forthcoming Doctor Who short story collection THE TEMPORAL LOGBOOK.

The blog will be the place to keep up-to-date on the project as it develops including news, information and forthcoming submission guidelines.  The blog can be found at http://www.thetemporallogbook.wordpress.com.

Name Change

After much debate we’ve decided to change the name of our forthcoming Doctor Who short story collection.  The TARDIS Tales will now be known as the The Temporal Logbook.   While we liked the original name for the project, we weren’t completely thrilled about it.  Something didn’t seem right.  So after much thought, debate and even a poll to ask potential readers, we felt The Temporal Logbook was a much more distinctive name.

A blog has been created for The Temporal Logbook here where you’ll find up-to-date information on the project including the revised submission guidelines for the project.
