Forthcoming Book: The Mythological Dimensions of Doctor Who
It is my hope this finds you well. Im not over here as often as I would like but wish to share with you all, some exciting news regarding our forthcoming book, "The Mythological Dimensions of Doctor Who,"
Firstly, we have a "Fan" page on Facebook. http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Mythological-Dimensions-of-Doctor-Who/297598851027 I have the Table of Contents, and some early press up as a note. Including an early review endorsement by non other than Ken Deep!
Yesterday I made the announcement of the addition of Dr. Matt Hills who has contributed the chapter “Mythology makes you feel something”: The Russell T. Davies Era as sentimental Journey. We welcome Dr. Matt Hills, author of "Triumph of a Time Lord: Regenerating Doctor Who in the 21st Century" (out now by I.B. Tauris) to the collection.
We now have cover art! Plus Kitsune Books, our publisher, has added us to their online catalog/store. http://www.kitsunebooks.com/DoctorWho.html
They have early reviews up, by Tony Lee of Doctor Who Ongoing, Ken Deep host of Podshock, Tony Keen of British Science Fiction Association and Matthew Kilburn of the Oxford Doctor Who Society
If you are affilliated with a university, society, book club, newspaper, online media, etc and this volume would be of interest to review please send me the contact information to have copies sent.
The Editors were invited by the hosts of The Happiness Patrol, to come on their show and discuss the book. If you are interested in hearing this discussion, and our participation throughout the rest of the show please subscribe via iTunes or visit their website here:
Additionally I will always endorse and support the work of not only our local DWNY.org group, but of course Doctor Who: Podshock, hosts Louis Trapani, Ken Deep and James Naughton have been great support of our book, and have endorsed it via a publicity blurb by Ken Deep, as I previously mentioned. I also wish to note that this is not the only help, which I will retell this story many times, that these guys have lent to me. Last summer I suffered a pretty bad concussion during the time we were receiving the contributions to the book, and editing them. During the healing process I was listening to past and current episodes of Doctor Who Podshock, ALL THE TIME :-) As they know and have told them all this really helped me get my cognitive functions back, perhaps sooner than I had anticipated. After 4-6 weeks of rest and healing I was able to return to work on the book. This is the fruits of that process
Our brilliant fact checker Barnaby Edwards of www.DWNY.org, and organizer of Who York, www.whoyork.com will be attending Gallifrey One (www.gallifreyone.com) and if you are attending he will have a few flyers on hand.
March 26-28th I-CON 29, www.iconsf.org the editors, and Barnaby Edwards will be hosting a panel about the book. There will be exact programming information forthcoming.

Details to come!
Weds. May 26th 2010 The British Science Fiction Association will be hosting a panel and book launch with all our UK contributors.
The editors will be attending events throughout the year to promote the work, such as San Diego Comic Con, New York Comic Con, Dragon Con and Hurricane Who (www.hurricanewho.com)
As we have more details I shall inform you of them, but stay tuned to the facebook page, Kitsune Books official page, and this thread ;-)
