The Mythological Dimensions of Doctor Who

A shameless plug here. This is a book of essays, one of which by yours truly, which is being released in the next couple of months. It's edited by Anthony S Burdge, Jessica Burke, and Kristine Larsen, with a preface by Barnaby Edwards and foreward by Simon Guerrier. Here is the blurb:

"This volume of essays examines the abundant mythological elements underpinning the 46-year-run (and many more!) of popular BBC television series Doctor Who. Contributors include a well-known Doctor Who novelist, an organizer of one of the largest Doctor Who online communities, plus several university scholars and founders of the American Northeast Tolkien Society. Explore the universe of the Doctor as seen through the eyes of myth and legend."

There will be a UK launched, hosted by the BSFA, featuring a panel chaired by Tony Keen, and consisting of Melissa Beattie, Simon Guerrier and Colin Harvey. Other contributors, Leslie McMurtry and Dr Matt Hills, will also be on hand:

Wednesday, May 26, 2010, 7pm.
British Science Fiction Association UK Launch.
Upstairs Room, The Antelope Tavern, 22 Eaton Terrace, Belgravia, London, SW1W 8EZ.

In the US, the official launch will be on May 20th at The Waystation, 7pm.
