Been chatting about ideas for the cover with Temporal Logbook cover designer John Gordon Swogger. I think we’ve come up with a great idea for the cover which will be unique and different.
Yes, it’s been quiet around here as we’ve been busy editing the stories and putting together the actual publication. Fear not though; we’re still here, just extremely busy. As they say, no news is good news.
The moment you’ve been waiting for has finally arrived.
Over the last several months, the Editors of the Temporal Logbook Charity Fiction collection have had the pleasure of considering a range enthusiastic, engaging story entries, covering a whole gamut of styles and storylines. After much deliberation, we are pleased to announce that the eleven finalists chosen for publication are:
- [FIRST DOCTOR] – A MODEST INTERVENTION by Michael Baxter
- [SECOND DOCTOR] – BREATHE by J. E. Remy
- [THIRD DOCTOR] – THE TELEMACAD by Benjamin Pocock
- [FOURTH DOCTOR] – THE ETERNALIST by Craig Charlesworth
- [FIFTH DOCTOR] – IMPOSSIBLE THINGS BEFORE BREAKFAST by Hannah Parry
- [SIXTH DOCTOR] – THE BRAIN DRAIN by Ian Larkin
- [SEVENTH DOCTOR] – A PLAGUE ON BOTH YOUR HOUSES by Sarah Parry
- [EIGHTH DOCTOR] – CHANGED AND CONFUSED by Nick Mellish
- [NINTH DOCTOR] – MUD AND METAL by Hamish Crawford
- [TENTH DOCTOR] – THE CREATURE OF VENGEANCE by Paul James Silvester
- [ELEVENTH DOCTOR] – SOMEWHERE BETWEEN HEAVEN AND HELL by Michael Itig
The Temporal Logbook is an unofficial and unauthorized not-for-profit short-story collection featuring original Doctor Who fiction by new and upcoming writers. The stories will involve the first eleven television Doctors, in a series of exciting adventures across space and time. The collection will be released by Canadian publisher Pencil Tip Publishing. 100% of the proceeds from this publication will be donated to our chosen charity Positive Living Society of British Columbia (formerly BC Persons with AIDS Society) http://www.positivelivingbc.org.
It’s the moment you’ve all been patiently waiting for over these past few weeks. Well, not quite but soon, very soon. Sadly yes, we’re going to leave you hanging on for a tiny bit longer till we officially announce the 11 stories which have been chosen to represent each Doctor’s era in The Temporal Logbook. While we’re not quite ready to publicly reveal those lucky writers, I can confirm that we’ve picked 10 of the 11 candidates.
If you have not received a rejection letter from us up to this point in time, that means that your story was one of the lucky finalist picked to represent a particular Doctor’s era. Each era was represented by between four to seven finalists. The editorial team reviewed and discussed each finalist and from there we picked the one story for each Doctor which will see publication.
We were really impressed by all of the finalist, but like anything of this nature, while we’d have liked to publish all of the stories, it just wasn’t possible. Unfortunately only one story for each Doctor could be chosen to represent Doctors 1 through 11.
Over the next few days, not only will we be notifying those writers who’s stories will be published, but we’ll also be corresponding with each of you whose stories weren’t lucky enough to be chosen for publication.
Once we’ve contacted all of the writers whose stories are to be published, we’re hoping to announce the official line-up by the end of the week, or if not sooner.
A Message from the Editors of The Temporal Logbook
We’ve had several email’s asking us if we could provide feedback to those of you whose stories were rejected. When we originally planned this project we had hoped we could do so, but unfortunately due to the high number of submissions we received, we will not be able to provide any kind of feedback regarding rejections to any writers who submitted stories to The Temporal Logbook. We apologize for this inconvenience.
Since August 3rd, we’ve been slowly emailing out rejection letters to those candidates whose stories won’t be used in the collection. The bulk of which should have been sent out by August 15th.
For anyone who submitted a story and haven’t received a rejection slip by that date, you can assume that your story is likely one of several finalists being considered for publication for the slot for a particular Doctor. Of those stories being considered for publication, we’ll be looking at them more closely over the next week or so and then narrowing it down to the final candidate that will be published in the logbook.
