May Day

Just a quick update:

Jamie maintains our Twitter account, and he's done a good job of updating it. So if you haven't followed us yet, click on the link at the top of the page to do so.

TTZ7 is shaping up nicely, with hosts of new artists from deviantART joining the mag this issue. We're particularly looking forward to sharing the Panel of 13 with you.

There's plenty more in store, so keep watching the current series of Doctor Who and remember to send in any contributions by June 28th at the latest. theterriblezodinezine(a)yahoo.co.uk

PS I am trying to organize an Ashes to Ashes fanzine (most likely one shot and possibly even a paper zine) so if you'd like to be part of that, let me know. Once I've decided what to call it I will probably set up a blogspot blog for it.

The Mythological Dimensions of Doctor Who

Kitsune Books have published a fascinating book on the intersections of myth and Who (and I'm not just saying that because I'm in it): it's called The Mythological Dimensions of Doctor Who and it's edited by Anthony S Burdge, Jessica Burke, and Kristine Larsen. It features essays by contributors on both sides of the Pond, including one by the editor of TTZ and a blurb on the back by Jamie Beckwith. (Not to mention a blurb by the editor's one-time professor Dr. Leslie Donovan.) It's also got a foreword by Simon Guerrier. Plug plug plug. Subjects include the Doctor as a Prometheus figure, the Doctor's adoption of wartime morality, Doctor Who and Tolkien, and much more.

The UK launch, hosted by the British Science Fiction Association, takes place this month in London. We will be reporting on it, no doubt, in TTZ7.

Here it is on amazon.com, amazon.co.uk, and the Kitsune Books website.
