Paul Cornell Christmas Story

This Saturday’s Daily Telegraph will feature a short story from Doctor Who writer Paul Cornell, reports the UK SF Book News Network.

Accordingly to Paul Cornell himself:

I’m pleased to say that my Doctor Who short story for Christmas, ‘The Hopes and Fears of All the Years’ will be appearing in the Daily Telegraph [on Saturday December 22nd], and then on the Telegraph’s website, [2] www.telegraph.co.uk. There are some lovely illustrations by Doctor Who Magazine comic artist [3] Mike Collins. I hope you enjoy it.”

There’s also a Facebook Events page linked to the occasion, allowing 10 lucky posters to the page the chance to win a special prize by leaving a message before Christmas Eve:

Announcing the grand prize: The original, framed, art of one of the three original illustrations that accompany the story. The winner may pick any one of the three. Overseas winners of the 24th may wait until the Daily Telegraph place the illustrations online in order to choose their favourite. The art will be signed by me, Mike, inker David Roach and colourist James Offredi, and it will then be delivered anywhere in the whole wide world.



A long-term Doctor Who fan, Christian grew up watching the show and has early memories of the Graham Williams era. His favourite stories are Inferno, The Seeds of Doom and Human Nature (although The Empty Child, Blink and Utopia all come close). When he’s not bossing around the news team, Christian is a freelance writer specialising in mobile technology and domestic computing, and enjoys classic rock, cooking and spending time in the countryside with his wife and young children. You can find him on Twitter, Facebook and Google+.
