Since the far-off days of About Time 7, when most people were reasonably sure what number came immediately before 9, Tat Wood has been working further About Time installments and totally non-Doctor-Who-related works (one of which, World History in Minutes, is available through Quercus Books and all good remaindered book shops). Lawrence Miles is the author of. hold on. yeah, eight novels now, and is best-known for creating the time-bending Faction Paradox series. Recovering academic Tat Wood is the person most compilers of previous guidebooks went to for advice and cultural context. Despite having written for just about every major fanzine going, he has a rich, full and complex life.
