In a surprising email earlier this year, I was invited to take part in an interview with Jason Peverett, whose blog The Peverett Phile has featured on Kasterborous numerous times in the past when it featured Doctor Who-related content.
The purpose of the interview? Why, Ultimate Regeneration, of course, which is still on sale here on Kasterborous for a very reasonable £14.99 (you can also purchase signed copies in person or via the web from who-ray.co.uk).
Here’s a snippet:
I was thinking of putting together a Peverett Phile book pheaturing all my interviews but then thought why would anybody buy it if they can read it for free on the web. Did that cross your mind as well?
“Ultimate Regeneration” is around 40-50% original content – there is a running narrative throughout from before “Rose” right through to the end of “The End of Time, Part 2″, covering form time to time press reaction, fan reaction, etc. Also a small number of reviews were unsuitable to be featured as originally presented, so we substituted these, as well as adding in some additonal material concerning Torchwood, Mickey Smith, Donna Noble and more. Additionally it isn’t just me writing the reviews, we’ve got contributions from Kasterborous Associate Editor Brian A. Terranova, Kopic’s “Doctor Who” News administrator Simon R. Mills, and Gareth Kavanagh of “Vworp Vworp!” So it’s more than just a “blog in a book” which is why I think it’s done so well – we’ve sold just over 100 copies so far which I’m delighted with.
I must say, it was quite a shock to be asked, but it was one of the most enjoyable things I’ve been asked to do since starting Kasterborous. Jason asked me some great questions, we had a nice chat about music and all in all, I think it turned out quite well.
