Terraphiles Audiobook

The forthcoming Michael Moorcock Doctor Who novel, The Coming of the Terraphiles, is also set to be released as an audiobook!

With over 40 years of sci-fi and fantasy writing behind him, Moorcock is the highest profile writer to be linked with Doctor Who yet, and his contribution to the Whoniverse makes Neil Gaiman’s involvement in Series 6 even more appropriate.

So, what is The Coming of the  Terraphiles?

Miggea – a star on the very edge of reality. The cusp between this universe and the next. A point where space-time has worn thin, and is in danger of collapsing… And the venue for the grand finals of the competition to win the fabled Arrow of Law.

The Doctor and Amy have joined the Terraphiles – a group obsessed with all aspects of Earth’s history, and dedicated to re-enacting ancient sporting events. They are determined to win the Arrow. But just getting to Miggea proves tricky. Reality is collapsing, ships are disappearing and Captain Cornelius and his pirates are looking for easy pickings. Even when the arrive, the Doctor and Amy’s troubles won’t be over. They have to find out who is so desperate to get the Arrow of Law that they will kill for it. And uncover the traitor on their own team. And win the contest fair and square. And, of course, they need to save the universe from total destruction.

The audiobook of The Coming of the Terraphiles is likely to be an abridged version of the full length novel, with actor Clive Mantle (Robin of Sherwood/Casualty/Holby City) narrating. You can purchase your copy for just £9.68 from Amazon in advance of the October release date.

The Coming of the Terraphiles is a full-length novel of the scale and depth you would normally expect from a writer of the stature of Michael Moorcock. With an RRP of £16.99, the hardback version is available from Amazon for just £8.49) while the Kindle ebook version is £8.07.

All versions are released on October 14th 2010.
