SFX.co.uk broke the news that Artemis Fowl author, Eoin Colfer, will be tackling the first short story for the 50th Anniversary collection. Each of the 11 British children’s authors (the other 10 still remain a secret) will be doing one short story based on each actor who has played the Doctor during the iconic Sci-Fi show’s 50-year run.
Colfer’s story, A Big Hand for the Doctor, centering around William Hartnell’s Doctor, will be released on January 23rd for £1.99 online. No word yet on North American availability or pricing.
It does appear that they will only be offering this collection in ebook form for now, but I imagine if demand is high enough, they’ll probably release a nice big analog box set for you quaint luddites out there.
