Miwk Publishing deserves an award for the most outrageous title for a Doctor Who book this year with Wallowing in Our Own Weltschmerz. This book is billed as the Auton Guide to the Stories Behind the Stories of the Seventh Doctor. I don’t know who Auton actually is but whoever they are is donating proceeds from this book to the Alzheimer’s Society and can be ordered now (release in July 2014).
What is Weltschmerz?
A quick look at Websters online gives us:
- a mental depression or apathy caused by comparison of the actual state of the world with an ideal state
- a mood of sentimental sadness
What’s in the book?
The book claims to answer the questions no one is asking such as how Delta could fit into Mel’s dress. The whole project looks like fun and is illustrated by Andy X Cable. Why not pop over to the Miwk site and have a look?!
