Here comes The End of the World? The Unofficial and Unauthorised Guide to Survivors from Telos Publishing.

An update from David Howe over at Telos Publishing


They have just announced details of another addition to their Classic Fiction range for 2005. In September 2005 they will publish Parish Damned a new vampire novella by Lee Thomas:

"The sickness was only the beginning of the misery for the residents of Coral Point. Every four years, the disease arrived to claim its victims. Those infected invariably withered, suffered, and, according to local legend, took to the sea in a final attempt at peace.

"But things have changed. Something has arrived in the wake of the sickness, and only a lone charter boat captain understands that what now hunts the gulf beyond the reef is far more deadly than anything that the people of Coral Point could imagine."

Parish Damned is published on the 15th of September 2005 and is now available for order.


Telos Publishing have also announceed two new television series guides:

The End of the World? The Unofficial and Unauthorised Guide to Survivors is written by Rich Cross and Andy Priestner and is the first commercially published book to scrutinise Survivors in depth and in its entirety. The End of the World? offers a guide to the production of each of Survivors' three series, and the characters who populate its storylines.

In Triquetra: The Unofficial and Unauthorised Guide to Charmed, author Keith Topping explores every episode of Charmed, revealing the triumphs, the goofs, the guest stars, the intake of nicotine and alcohol, and generally gets under the skin of the Halliwell sisters and their lives, loves and spellbinding adventures.

The End of the World? is published on the 15th of September 2005 and Triquetra is published on the 15th of December.

And don't forget that their guide to the 2005 series of Doctor Who, Back to the Vortex by J Shaun Lyon is due to be published in August.


They are pleased to announce details of the seventh and eighth Time Hunter Novellas.

Written by Philip Purser-Hallard, Peculiar Lives sees Honoré Lechasseur and Emily Blandish discover dangerous truths after a chance encounter with a strangely gifted young pickpocket. Born between the Wars, the superhuman children known as 'the Peculiar' are reaching adulthood - and they believe that humanity is making a poor job of looking after the world they plan to inherit....

In Deus Le Volt, written by Jon de Burgh Miller, Honoré and Emily are plunged into the middle of the first Crusade in 1098 on the trail of what appears to be a time travelling knight. As the siege of Antioch draws to a close, so death haunts the blood-soaked streets ... and the Fendahl - a creature that feeds on life itself - is summoned. Honoré and Emily find themselves facing angels and demons in a battle to survive their latest adventure.

Peculiar Lives is published in July 2005 and Deus Le Volt in October.
