Jenny Colgan has announced that her second Doctor Who book is preliminarily titled Into the Nowhere.
The novel is expected to be part of the newly-announced Time Trips range of eBooks, set to begin in November to coincide with – duh! – the show’s 50th anniversary. She joins authors like Nick Harkaway (Edie Investigates; Angelmaker), Trudi Canavan (The Black Magician Trilogy; The Magician’s Apprentice) and A.L. Kennedy (Paradise; So I Am Glad).
The series is set to follow in the footsteps of other popular eBook releases like Devil in the Smoke, Summer Falls and the Short Trips short stories, and will be an ongoing range, with each book about 10,000 words in length.
Jenny, who previously wrote Dark Horizons, said:
“It is such an honour to be part of the prestigous Time Trips line-up, with so many excitingly fresh perspectives on the Doctor’s life and adventures.”
Colgan, who met Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison when she was a child, is a proper fan of Doctor Who, and hoped to write another adventure for the TARDIS when Dark Horizons was released – and now she’s got her wish! Dark Horizons, which featured the Eleventh Doctor travelling on his own, received very favourable reviews, and yesterday, she took part in a Who event at Heathrow airport. She revealed Into the Nowhere on this morning’s The Wright Stuff, which she said will feature snakes and skeletons, and will be released in 2014.
Later on next year, a set of Time Trips will be collected together as a traditional book (remember them?). So us poor folk who don’t like all this electronic bookery will be able to read them too. Hoorah!
