"Reading these pages in the
is like looking in a time traveller's mirror."
Jim Mortimore (Author, Skaldenland)
Once upon a time before the internet
and computers, there were things called typewriters and a wondrous
television programme called Doctor Who. Love for the latter drove
young fans towards the use of the former and after much clacking at the
unforgiving keys, many hundreds of fanzines were born. Some were good,
some were bad and some were unintentionally hilarious.
This book collects together all four
original issues of one of those Doctor Who fanzines, Fury From The Deep,
produced in 1979-80 by the fourteen year old Alan Hayes. It was never a
classic, was definitely unintentionally hilarious, but over the space of thirty years and more, these fanzines have
grown into a fascinating time capsule which afford a peek into the fan
experience of a bygone age.
Also presented in this collection are
engaging introduction and afterword pieces by Alan Hayes and Jim Mortimore
and a series of contemporary letters to the editor from Doctor Who's
cast and crew.
