    Default First Doctor Who Anniversary eBook To Be Written By Eoin Colfer

    Having sequelised Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Trilogy, the next feather in Eoin Colfer's cap is a First Doctor adventure written for the BBC's series of anniversary eBooks.

    Here's the "cover" for his story, A Big Hand For The Doctor, as revealed via Facebook. The book is available for pre-order via Amazon and iTunes now and will become available on January 23rd.



    Colfer is probably best known for his Artemis Fowl books. I'm surprised they never became films.

    We're expecting - okay, hoping - to see Neil Gaiman named as the author of the Second Doctor story next month.

    After reading the article about "famous children's authors" I assumed he'd be one. Kinda dull cover, even if it's an ebook.

    I assume a bean counter killed "Artemis Fowl" as movies when the various attempts to get the next Harry Potter series failed over and over.

    It looks like something a kid could knock up in MS Publisher in about half an hour.

    I've never read anything by Colfer, but I'll probably give this a go. Actually, they're being collected in a print anthology at the end, so I'll be giving them all a go.

    Are there ten more famous living and active speculative fiction children's authors in the world?

    Hmm hope it's not gonna be a comedy story I'd rather see a proper sci-fi one. Wonder why it's penguin and not BBC books?
