OUT OF STOCK
Just to let customers know that Volume 1 of TIMELINK is currently out of stock. Demand for this title has been high and so we have temporarily sold out. A reprint is under way, but we won't have this until the new year.
I'll post more news here about titles which we run out of to try and keep people in the loop.

TELOS PUBLISHING NEWSLETTER - 2 December 2011
Hi and welcome to probably the last newsletter of the year from us here at Telos Towers. It's been a great 12 months for us, with some amazing books published, and some great feedback from everyone on what we have done.
Here's a list of the year's releases:
28 Feb 2011 Timelink: The Unofficial and Unauthorised Guide to the Continuity of Doctor Who by Jon Preddle
28 Feb 2011 Zombies in New York and Other Bloody Jottings by Sam Stone
28 Feb 2011 Angel Confidential by Mike Ripley
31 May 2011 Angel City by Mike Ripley
30 Jul 2011 Hear the Roar! The Unofficial and Unauthorised Guide to the Hit 1980s Series ThunderCats by David Crichton
30 Sep 2011 talespinning by David J Howe
30 Oct 2011 Howe's Transcendental Toybox Update Number 3: The Complete Guide to 2006-2009 Doctor Who Merchandise by David J Howe and Arnold T Blumberg
We kicked off with three titles in Feburary. Sam Stone's ZOMBIES IN NEW YORK AND OTHER BLOODY JOTTINGS has become one of our fiction bestsellers, and it's continuing to sell very healthy numbers every week. This is testament to Sam's brilliant writing, and that word has spread about the book and just how good it is!
TIMELINK finally saw the light of day in February as well, and this immense two-volume set by Jon Preddle has been well received.
We released two further titles in Mike Ripley's popular 'Angel' series of comic crime novels over the course of the year, and we have plans for more of these in 2012, so keep watching the site!
David J Howe's own collection of horror fiction, TALESPINNING was released in September to much acclaim, and the final two factual books of the year have also been very popular: David Crighton's HEAR THE ROAR, the guide to the original series of THUNDERCATS, hit the shops at the same time as the new series on television, and David J Howe and Arnold T Blumberg's latest update to the immense DOCTOR WHO merchandise project that is the TOYBOX has also met with appreciative comments.
For 2012 we already have several titles in the wings which are being worked on, and as soon as we have confirmed details and covers then they will be released.
If anyone wants to order any of Telos' titles for Christmas, then please note that the latest posting date for second class mail in the UK is Saturday 17th December, and we will do our best to get all orders processed and despatched by that date. Anyone who orders after that date will have to take pot luck on the postal system. For more details of the last posting dates for overseas, then please see the Royal Mail page here: http://www.royalmail.com/greetings
HOWE'S TRANSCENDENTAL TOYBOX: UPDATE NO 3: 2006-2009
The long-awaited third update volume to the TOYBOX project is now finally available. The book was delayed due to the sheer amount of work needed to pull something like 1500 items together over the 4 year period that the volume covers, and then to get it all laid out with photographs and information, plus some additional interviews and articles which will hopefully be of interest to readers.
The final book has come in at 448 pages and so is a massive tome, and it's also in full colour throughout! Unfortunately this means that the price has had to rise to £25.99 for the book.
David J Howe and Arnold T Blumberg present the definitive collector's guide to Doctor Who merchandise. From the rare and obscure to the commonplace and disposable, every facet of Doctor Who's penetration into the marketplace is detailed.
