It’s been a while since the last update on the second Temporal Logbook but we wanted to assure readers that the short story collection will be published very soon – we’re aiming for a spring publication date. Unfortunately this volume has been subject to a few delays beyond our control – sadly some of our authors had to drop out due to other commitments – but we’ve now got a solid lineup of 15 all new stories (one for each Doctor, one for the War Doctor, and two bonus stories) for your reading enjoyment. We’re currently in the final story editing stage and once that’s done, work can begin on the publication layout and then copy editing the proof copy.
The cover once again will be designed by John Swogger.
Keep tuned to this (as well as the Temporal Logbook) bloog, as we’ll be featuring more updates on the project in the coming days/weeks.
It’s been a long time coming but, we’re really excited to reveal the final line-up for the forthcoming Temporal Logbook II: Further Journeys. This edition will feature 13 stories covering Doctors 1 through 12 including the War Doctor; as well as two bonus stories, (one of which is a sequel to a story featured in the first Temporal Logbook).
This all new collection includes:
First Doctor – Ghosts of the Future by Hamish Crawford
Second Doctor – The Clockwork Dreamer Sings Songs To The Stars – Nic Ford
Third Doctor – The Spectre of Gelsandor – Russell McGee
Fourth Doctor – Nightfall on Titan – Richard Peevers

Thank you to those of you who submitted Temporal Logbook II story proposals for the TTL2 Editorial team to read and assess. We were completely overwhelmed by the response and sheer number of proposals we received. We very much appreciate the time and energy each of you put into your proposals.
As of today (October 1), all of you who submitted proposals will have heard from us whether your story idea was accepted or not for publication – this includes those writers who’s stories have been chosen for publication. (If you haven’t received an email from us, please make sure you check your spam and/or junk mail folders as our response may have been delivered there by mistake.)
Over the next few weeks we’ll be doing some work behind the scenes. Once that’s completed, we hope to reveal the official line-up for volume two. Publication for volume two is schedule for 2017.
Once again, thank you to all of you.
TTL2 Editorial Team
The first batch of rejection letters have now gone out today to individuals who submitted story proposals for the forthcoming Temporal Logbook II. Over the next several weeks we will be sending email’s to each person who submitted a proposal regarding the status of their proposal (this includes stories not being used, and those being used).
Please note that if you have not received a rejection letter as of yet, this could mean that:
- we have not yet sent one out to you
- we have not yet assessed your story
- or, your story may likely have been accepted for inclusion
This process will likely take sometime to complete, but we are hoping to have contacted everyone by the end of September/early October. In the meantime, please do not contact Pencil Tip if you have not yet heard from us. We will advise when all correspondence has been sent out.
