Description

Fantasy and sci-fi giant Michael Moorcock's Doctor Who epic featuring the 11th Doctor and Amy…

The Terraphiles are a group obsessed with Earth's past and dedicated to re-enacting ancient sporting events. The Doctor and Amy join them on a trip to Miggea, a star on the very edge of reality, and venue for a competition to win the fabled Arrow of Law. But the Terraphiles' grasp of Earth history and customs is dubious to say the least, and just getting to Miggea is going to prove tricky.

For reality is falling apart, ships are disappearing, and Captain Cornelius and his pirates are looking for easy pickings. And the Doctor and Amy have to find out who is so desperate to get the Arrow of Law that they will kill for it.

Reviews

“Delicious. The modern genre's most original voice has invited the Doctor into his multiverse for an adventure sparkling with wit and peril… Authentic Moorcock. Authentic Who. An essential read” – Stephen Baxter

“A combination of Moorcockian multiverse and Wodehousian Comedy filigreed into something magical and unexpected. It's Doctor Who written by the most important living British fantasist, and it's as good as I'd hoped, and much funnier” – Neil Gaiman

“Delightfully good-humored… an authentically Moorcockian take on both Doctor Who and that most whimsical of themes – the coming of ultimate chaos and the annihilation of the universe itself!” – Alastair Reynolds

“We are astoundingly lucky to have Michael Moorcock. In his range, his skill, invention and his passion he exemplifies the very best of more than one literary tradition” – China Mieville

“Here we have one of science fiction and fantasy's most respected and well-loved authors writing Doctor Who. What could possibly go wrong? The answer is absolutely nothing. This is a phenomenal book – 10/10” – Total Sci Fi

“Exhilarating, funny and deeply peculiar…It's been years since the Doctor Who range put out anything as smart and engaging as this. Fingers crossed it's the first of many such volumes” – SFX

“A bold, eccentric quasi space opera” – Doctor Who Magazine

“The great Michael Moorcock has written a Doctor Who book which is like Burt Bacharach knocking out an album for Lady Gaga” – Word Magazine

“A marriage made in heaven, or perhaps Gallifrey. As a teenager Michael Moorcock was my favourite author, and Doctor Who my favourite TV programme. Why no one has ever put the two of them together before I don't know” – Charlie Higson
