Welcome to 2016. The guys at Candy Jar Books have got some great stuff planned for this year, including six titles from the main range and a bonus novella for those who take advantage of the bundle offers (see below for details).
The series returns in the spring with three new titles; Moon Blink by Sadie Miller (co-star of Big Finish’s Sarah Jane Smith range of audio dramas), The Showstoppers by Jonathan Cooper (author of two Space: 1889 novels) and The Grandfather Infestation by John Peel (author of many Doctor Who novelisations and four original Doctor Who novels). Three further titles will be announced in the summer.
But what of 2015? We ran a end-of-year poll in the last few weeks to see what you, the reader, thought of the 2015 titles. The results can be seen below.
For ‘Favourite Novel’ the battle was fierce, with Beast of Fang Rock and Mutually Assured Domination vying for top position, but things changed in the last few days with The Forgotten Son rising rapidly to second place with 26.92% of the votes, with Mutually Assured Domination close behind at third place with 25.96% of the votes. Making the ‘Favourite Novel 2015’ as voted by the readers, Beast of Fang Rock.
The ‘Favourite Short’ poll saw a clear winner, while the interesting stuff was happening lower in the poll. Initially it seemed that The Ambush was likely to grab second spot, but as the days and weeks passed it was rapidly taken over by both The Cult of the Grinning Man and The Fright Before Christmas, both written by newcomer Tom Dexter. Ultimately the former took second place with 19.18% of the votes, followed by the festive story, with 16.7% of the votes. This left The Dogs of War, which saw Lethbridge-Stewart team up with Counter Measures‘ Gilmore, as winner, and the readers’ ‘Favourite Short 2015’.
