Obverse Books has announced a second collection of Doctor Who material in aid of writer Tommy Donbavand, called A Second Target for Tommy. As I don’t personally know Tommy, I’ll give the official press release:
Our good friend the fabulous writer Tommy Donbavand, having overcome throat cancer, has now had the shattering news that he has a tumour in his lung. As a result he continues to be unable to do the school visits which generated much of the income he needs to support his family.
In 2016, the reading community rallied round when some Tommy’s friends released the original A TARGET FOR TOMMY, a collection of Doctor Who short stories. Now, some of us have decided to release a sequel – A SECOND TARGET FOR TOMMY.
Including – for the first time ever! – the draft script for the Christopher Eccleston scene in Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary Special, Day of the Doctor, kindly provided by outgoing Who showrunner, Steven Moffat, and stories from over two dozen writers, every penny of profit raised will go to support Tommy while he works on making a full recovery.
At the moment there are no plans for an ebook version of the book, and we cannot guarantee how long the paperback will be available, so please order now!
An ebook of the first TARGET FOR TOMMY can however be purchased here: http://obversebooks.co.uk/product/a-target-for-tommy/
