‘Creag an tuire!’ To celebrate the 50th anniversary of “Doctor Who”, Penguin BooksUK and Puffin Books is releasing e books each month in 2013 featuring one of the eleven Doctors and written by a famous children’s or young adult’s fiction author. For February, Puffin will be releasing “The Nameless City” by Michael Scott. Keeping true to the adventures of Jaime McCrimmon and The Doctor, this story is written in a way that automatically brings the reader to imagine the action in Black and White. Patrick Troughton’s Doctor is brought back to life in this exciting and entertaining narrative.
“The Nameless City” is somewhat of a scary story. Is it possible to hide behind a sofa while reading a book? The TARDIS is broken down and Jamie has been sent on a mission to find three items to help bring her back to life. While on the hunt for the Doctor’s shopping list, Jaime foils a robbery and is rewarded with a mysterious book. The Doctor’s whimsical ways turn to fear when his worst nightmare comes true and the destruction of the Time Lords, Gallifrey and the universe is placed into unimaginable jeopardy.
Michael Scott is one of Ireland’s most prolific authors. In his twenty five year career, he has written young adult and adult novels across many genres. Known as one of the foremost authorities of Celtic folklore and mythology, Scott is recently well known for his groundbreaking series “The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel”.
“The Nameless City” will be published and available for download from Amazon as of February 23, 2013. Stay tuned for announcements regarding the upcoming stories in this collection. The next installment will be a story about Jon Pertwee‘s third Doctor.
