Overview

From the earliest days of fandom, through "The Wilderness Years" of the 90s and up through the resurgence of the new series in the present day, fanzines have yielded some of the most delightful, insightful and unique writings about Doctor Who. Well and truly made by fans and for fans, many of these publications were circulated exclusively at conventions and pub get-togethers, at times reaching a limited readership in the hundreds or mere dozens.

Now, through the multi-volume Time, Unincorporated series, selected treasures from this vast fanzine resource are collected and made available for the first time to a wider audience.

Volume two of this series contains nearly 75 essays that examine every era of the classic Doctor Who series that ran from 1963-1989, as well as the FOX TV movie (1996). The essays stem from a wide array of venerable fanzines such as Enlightenment, Shockeye's Kitchen, Burnt Toast, Faze, Dark Circus, The Whostorian and more. Collectively, the essays derived from these sources form one of the most diverse compilations of Doctor Who writing ever produced.

As a bonus, ten of the essays were written exclusively for this volume by the likes of Matt Jones (Doctor Who, Torchwood), Simon Guerrier (The Slitheen Excursion), Jonathan Blum (Seeing I), Pyr Books editorial director Lou Anders and Jim Sangster (TV Heaven).
