Queers Dig Time Lords

Coming in June 2013, from the company that brought you Chicks Dig Time Lords comes Queers Dig Time Lords: A Celebration of Doctor Who by the LGBTQ  Fans Who Love It.

Queers Dig Time Lords from Mad Norwegian Press is expected in June 2013

The LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning) here consist of award winning authors from all over the world bringing together their thoughts and celebrating the brilliance that is Doctor Who as well as the stories and characters that they love.

Here’s run down of what you can expect from the book and exactly which big names will be putting in their two pence worth:

In Queers Dig Time Lords, editors Sigrid Ellis (Chicks Dig Comics) and Michael Damian Thomas (Apex Magazine) bring together essays by award-winning writers to celebrate the phenomenon that is Doctor Who, in the tradition of the Hugo Award-winning Chicks Dig Time Lords.

Tanya Huff (Blood Ties) wears bi-focals as she analyzes the Doctor’s fluid sexuality, former Doctor Who script editor Gary Russell explores the show’s effect on his teenage years, Paul Magrs (Hornets’ Nest) defends and celebrates the series’ camp qualities, and Melissa Scott (Trouble and Her Friends) describes Who’s impact on her greatest love and loss.

Other contributors include David Llewellyn (Night of the Humans), Rachel Swirsky (Through the Drowsy Dark), Hal Duncan (Ink: The Book of All Hours), Mary Anne Mohanraj (Bodies in Motion), and Jed Hartman (Strange Horizons).

Introduction by Doctor Who and Torchwood star John Barrowman, and Carole E Barrowman (Exodus Code). Cover art by Colleen Coover (Small Favors).

Some of you that have been waiting for this book’s June release may also have heard rumours that it’s been pushed back to July but rest assured, it will be out in June for you to enjoy!

Available in print for $17.95 and also on the Amazon Kindle or Nook on the day of release, Queers Dig Time Lords will be available from June 4th 2013 with a full list of the book’s contributors to be released closer to the date. UK readers can pre-order from Amazon for just £10.09.

About the Author

What happens when an eight year old kid watches the 1993 repeat run of Planet of the Daleks? He pretty much ends up here writing about the show that grabbed hold of him and never let go!




One Response to Queers Dig Time Lords

    I bought ‘Chicks Dig Timelords’ and LOVED it, and as a gay woman this is also up my street, so it has now been added to my wish list. But why oh why is it that when ever you see a book AIMED at the LGBT community it’s almost always gay men on the cover as if gay women don’t exist. Why couldn’t someone come up that involved both…It could have shown two TV’s with two gay couples…Is it so hard?
