There is no denying that this has been a most excellent year for Doctor Who and for its fans with a quite staggering range of events and merchandise on offer and the pinnacle of these, so far, has been the 50th anniversary.
A little late to the party, but no less impressive is the updated 50th anniversary edition of The Fourth Dimension, a collection of short stories and reviews from Steven Miscandlon, a fan who back in the wilderness years of the 1990′s wrote extensively for various fanzines. The Fourth Dimension is a compilation of many of these works and gives a wonderful time capsule of the scene at that time. The collection was first released earlier this year but is now expanded with a new Eighth Doctor story written especially for this edition and a snazzy hard backed binding, and the best part… it’s all for charity!
“Since it first went on sale in May, Fourth Dimension has seen some success – peaking at number three in Lulu’s sci-fi bestsellers chart – and raised money for Unite Against Cancer…As the 50th anniversary month approached, I wanted to mark the occasion by producing a special hardback edition of the book.”
The Fourth Dimension 50th Anniversary Special Edition is available in hardback from Lulu, and in various ebook formats directly from the author. All profits from sales of the book will be donated to UK charity Unite Against Cancer, which was set up in 2012 to fund research into new cancer treatments.
