Fury from the Deep - A Relic of the Old Time


REVIEW

LITERARY WHO SPOTLIGHT: I'm a sucker for nostalgia; I think most Whovians' longtime love for DW is steeped in the stuff -- in the way the series snared and scared and enthralled us decades (and decades!) ago, burning into our minds and hearts the way the best stuff does when you're young. Alan Hayes' Fury From The Deep collection is a nostalgic delight for this aging Whovian and one-time entertainment-writer-wannabe. I was knocked out by the ambitious, crudely beautiful FFTD, a Who fanzine Hayes wrote, edited, illustrated and distributed (in an era long before desktop publishing!) for a period of months in 1979-80. It's a fun trip down DW memory lane, and made me wish I'd been more industrious myself back then. Hayes adds a humble, funny introduction; numerous letters he received from DW cast and crew; and an afterword by his longtime pal and FFTD collaborator Jim Mortimore (later a successful Who novelist and Big Finish scriptwriter). The things we love at that age never leave us; they certainly never left Alan Hayes. Kudos to him for immortalizing in print this charming piece of his own Who history.
