"THE WRIGHT STUFF"
A novel by Tim Pieraccini
Tim, a very good friend of mine, wrote this novel back in 1999/2000, and I'm very pleased to be able to host it on my website for him to hopefully give a wider audience the chance to read it. There's not much more I can say about it other than that it's fantastic. I shall leave Tim himself to give you a fuller introduction:
An Introductory Warning
This began life as a Doctor Who idea. That’s not how it ended up. There is some Doctor Who content, but those looking for much evidence of the Doctor himself will be disappointed. Those interested in a slightly different take on the early years of Who and a view of the universe that is considerably older than the 745 years the Hartnell Doctor was supposed to carry might find the book interesting. (If nothing else, you could test your knowledge of sixties culture on the chapter headings; they’re all song titles or lyrics or film titles from ’67 or before. There is a note at the end to identify them for anyone who cares, but I’d advise against reading it beforehand if you wish to avoid a fairly major spoiler towards the end.)
Oh, and about the title. I know. It was a working title, and it kind of stuck. Be grateful; I did consider calling it "Barbara Cutaway".
Tim would very much like some feedback on this novel, so if you have read it and would like to pass on your comments to him, you can e-mail me and I'll pass the comments on.
