Temporal Logbook II Update

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.

Star One Compendium Update

Thought we’d share some promo info with you guys regarding the forthcoming Star One Compendium.

Star One was a short-lived Canadian fan magazine dedicated to Blake’s 7 publishing four issues between 2011-2012, with an unreleased fifth issue planned for 2013. Compiled and edited by Bob Furnell, this special omnibus edition brings together many of the articles from the original issues – updated and revised – brand new material, specially written for this release; plus material intended for the unpublished fifth issue.

The Star One Compendium features:

  • Interviews with: Chris Boucher (Blake’s 7 script writer & editor); David Richardson (Big Finish) and authors Scott Harrison, Cavan Scott and Mark Wright
  • Original Fiction by fan-writers Winnie Lacesso and Katherine Lopez
  • A brand new original Blake’s 7 short-story by J.E. Remy (Temporal Logbook) specially written for the compendium
  • Results to the Star One Series Survey – first time these results have been made public
  • Original Artwork by Richard Farrell (Andersonic, Plaything of Sutekh)
  • Articles, reviews, opinion pieces and much more!

Page Count: 254, 6×9 Paperback
Published (Final Quarter) 2017

As of this posting, approximately 75% of the book is complete (layout wise) and currently stands at 254 pages. I’m sure there’ll be a few modifications and changes before the final version is completed.
