We have sold out of HOWE'S TRANSCENDENTAL TOYBOX UPDATE NO 2 ... we won't be reprinting as the book is way too expensive ... so it unfortunately joins the ranks of Telos' Out Of Print canon.
Likewise, copies of WIPED are also sold out. This title may be reprinted with updates next year, so if you don't yet have it, or if you're interested in the reprinted edition, then keep an eye on the site.

Please share the page/links if you can ... we want this collection and stories to sell really well so Sam gets to do more horror for AudioGo. And if you like the stories ... then please tell all your friends!

Welcome to another newsletter from Telos Publishing. Time has a habit of getting away from us here at Telos Towers, and it seems that the last Newsletter was back in July! Where has the year gone!
Here's details of the arrivals since last time:
The Comic Strip Companion: The Unofficial and Unauthorised Guide to Doctor Who in Comics: 1964 — 1979
by Paul Scoones
Zombies at Tiffany's
But then events take a turn for the worse: men and women wander the streets talking of ‘the darkness’; bodies vanish from morgues across town; and random, bloody attacks on innocent people take place in broad daylight.
A steampunked novella of diamonds, chutzpah, death and horror from the blood-drenched pen of Sam Stone.
This book presents an extensive selection from Barry’s personal collection of photographs of his designs for Doctor Who ~ many published for the very first time ~ with insight into his ideas, influences and accomplishments in his own words. See Ancient Egypt, Renaissance Italy, volcanic Tigus, distant Karn and more exotic locations come to life through Barry’s meticulous and inventive designs.
Copies can be ordered from Telos here: http://www.telos.me.uk/category.php?id=6#138
Ape-Man: The Unofficial and Unauthorised Guide to 100 Years of Tarzan
by Sean Egan
This book traces Tarzan's history in prose, film, comic strips, comic books, radio, stage, television, computer games and merchandise, charting the rise of one of the most popular and iconic characters in fiction. Included is the last ever interview with Danton Burroughs (grandson of Edgar Rice Burroughs), plus exclusive comments from Michael Moorcock, Hugh Hudson, R A Salvatore and the oldest surviving screen Tarzan, Denny Miller, amongst many more. The book also examines the massive changes in public attitudes towards Africa, race, hereditary peers and wildlife conservation that may finally deal Tarzan the fatal blow that any number of sinister safaris and high priests of mysterious lost cities failed to.
A comprehensive exploration of one of the most famous icons of the last hundred years.

Telos Movie Classics: Hulk
by Tony Lee
As a neurotic human changes into an unstoppable beast, Hulk offers a study of dysfunctional family relationships alongside tank-busting, helicopter- crashing mayhem, that results in a final confrontation of cosmic proportions. A unique aesthetic spectacle, and an extraordinary makeover for Hollywood blockbuster cinema, Hulk is an impressive screen adaptation of a comic-book rediscovering the enduring legacy of a green-skinned ‘superhero’ without a costume.
This book reviews the movie's narrative complexity and its varied genre elements - including science fiction, tragic drama, action thriller, doomed romance, and modern fairytale - and studies the mythological references, realised by an artistically innovative editing style and groundbreaking visual effects.
A series of guides to some of the most talked-about films ever produced.From classics and acclaimed features to lesser-known or overlooked works, but all deserving of critical appraisal. Telos Movie Classics are the perfect way to gain a greater insight into the films you love.

Arriving next is the following title:
Whostrology: A Time Traveller's Almanac
by Michael M Gilroy-Sinclair
Illustrated by Deborah Taylor
Whostrology is a book of daily readings, zodiac signs and explanations, and other Who-based astrological elements, designed to allow every Who fan to lead a life of peace and ordered calm.
This is an ideal Christmas book, quirky and fun, and perfectly illustrated by Deborah Taylor.
There's a facebook page for it here: https://www.facebook.com/#!/Whostrology
Copies can be ordered from Telos here: http://www.telos.me.uk/category.php?id=6#133
Hopefully before the end of the year, we will have a new edition of THE TELEVISION COMPANION available. This will be re-issued in two volumes as the original book was at the limit of what could be bound in a single book, and will have new covers by the very talented Iain Robertson. We are currently reviewing the content to ensure that any rogue typos and other errors are cleared up, and as soon as we have it ready to go, then ordering will be added to the Telos site.
The book is widely considered the 'bible' to the Classic series of Doctor Who, and so we're delighted to be able to make it available once more to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the show in 2013.
In other news, we're pleased that Fantom Films have now released the final three audio-books in the Time Hunter range. These audios are tremendous, and the readers bring great life and vitality to the adventures in time and space of Honore Lechasseur and Emily Blandish. The final three are written by Dale Smith, R J Carter and Troy Riser, and George Mann and David J Howe.
They can be ordered from the Telos site here: http://www.telos.me.uk/category.php?id=1
Or there are download and multiple order discount offers available from the Fantom Films website here: http://www.fantomfilms.co.uk
Sam Stone's acclaimed horror collection, ZOMBIES IN NEW YORK AND OTHER BLOODY JOTTINGS gets an audio release in time for Halloween from the good people at AudioGo. The stories in the collection are available individually or as a bundle, and are available on download from the AudioGo website (www.audiogo.com), Audible.com, and everywhere else that AudioGo's products can be obtained from.
Watch out for a feature on the new Barry Newbery photograph book in a future edition of SciFiNow magazine ...
