Mad Norwegian Press is proud to announce the forthcoming publication of Queers Dig Time Lords: A Celebration of Doctor Who by the LGBTQ Fans Who Love It, an essay collection in the tradition of the Hugo Award-winning Chicks Dig Time Lords. In this new release, award-winning authors from across the rainbow celebrate the phenomenon that is Doctor Who, examining the characters and stories that they love.
The book is edited by Sigrid Ellis (Chicks Dig Comics) and Michael Damian Thomas (Apex Magazine). The introduction is by Doctor Who and Torchwood star John Barrowman, and his sister and frequent collaborator, Carole E Barrowman (Anything Goes, Torchwood: Exodus Code). The book’s cover art is by Colleen Coover (Small Favors).
Essay contributors to this collection include Tanya Huff (Blood Ties), Melissa Scott (Trouble and Her Friends), John Richards (Outland), Paul Magrs (Hornets’ Nest), Gary Russell (Doctor Who script editor), Rachel Swirsky (Through the Drowsy Dark), Hal Duncan (Ink: The Book of All Hours), Amal El-Mohtar (The Honey Month), Brit Mandelo (Beyond Binary), Nigel Fairs (In Conversation with an Acid Bath Murderer), David Llewellyn (Night of the Humans), Susan J. Bigelow (Extrahumans), Jennifer Pelland (Machine), Mary Anne Mohanraj (Bodies in Motion), and Jed Hartman (Strange Horizons).
Queers Dig Time Lords will be released on June 4th, 2013. Owing to a glitch at the distributor, some online pre-order pages erroneously claim the release date is July 9th – the book’s release date remains June 4th, and the incorrect July 9th listings will be corrected in the weeks ahead.
The print version of the book retails for $17.95. The book will also be available as an ebook on the Kindle and Nook on the day of release.
A full contributor’s list to Queers Dig Time Lords will be available in future.
