Publisher: Penguin
ISBN: 9781101545874
Release Date: 2011-11-10
Genre: Fiction

John Mortimer—novelist, playwright, memoirist, and the author of more than eighty Rumpole short stories—will never be forgotten. While still a practicing barrister, Mortimer took up the pen, and the rest is literary history. His stories featuring the cigar-chomping, cheap-wine-tippling Rumpole and his wife, Hilda (aka "She Who Must Be Obeyed"), have justly earned their place in the pantheon of mystery fiction legends, becoming the basis for the very successful television series Rumpole of the Bailey. Bringing fourteen of Rumpole's most entertaining adventures (seven of which were collected in The Best of Rumpole) together with a fragment of a new story, Forever Rumpole proves beyond a reasonable doubt that Rumpole is never less than delightful.

Lost in Time and Space An Unofficial Guide to the Uncharted Journeys of Doctor Who

Author: Matthew J. Elliott
Publisher: Hasslein Books
ISBN: 057814364X
Release Date: 2014-06-05
Genre: Fiction

BBC's immensely popular Doctor Who series, featuring an extraterrestrial Time Lord exploring the universe aboard a time machine resembling a police call box, is a significant part of British pop-culture and a cult favorite worldwide. The series has changed radically over the years, with thirteen actors portraying the Doctor to date, and with more than 50 companions joining him on his adventures. But the show's 800 televised episodes (so far) are just the tip of the iceberg, as the Doctor has referenced countless encounters never expanded upon onscreen. After five decades of time-traveling adventures, you might imagine you knew all there was to know about the greatest hero in all of time and space, but it turns out he was living another life entirely while we weren't looking. This is the story of that life. RiffTrax.com writer Matthew J Elliott, the author of Sherlock Holmes on the Air, Sherlock Holmes in Pursuit, The Immortals: An Unauthorized Guide to Sherlock and Elementary and The Throne Eternal, as well as numerous radio plays based on Sherlock Holmes, The Twilight Zone, Vincent Price Presents, Logan's Run, Perry Mason and The War of the Worlds, has accepted the Herculean task of chronicling those "stories between the stories." This is not a typical Doctor Who project-but, then, Matthew is not a typical Doctor Who fan. Beautifully designed, the book features an insightful foreword by Alan Barnes, the author of the animated Tenth Doctor adventure The Infinite Quest, and a writer and editor for Big Finish Productions' audio dramas featuring five of the Doctor's earlier incarnations.
