Here’s a stocking-filler for you all! Bernice Summerfield: In Time, an anthology of short stories (including one by me) starring the former Doctor Who companion, is out now and can be ordered from the Big Finish website in physical, digital and audio formats.
The book contains a set of short stories set at various different points in Benny’s life, from her youth to her octogenarian years, making it both a treat for long-time fans and an all-round introduction for newcomers to the character (for those unaware, Benny was introduced in the 1990s Virgin novels and became popular enough to star in her own line of spin-offs; she even guest starred in a novel about the Capaldi Doctor).
The writing team includes Dave Stone, Mark Clapham, Simon Guerrier, Antonio Rastelli, Victoria Simpson, James Goss and Peter Anghelides. My own contribution to the book is “The Bunny’s Curse”, a story about a teenage Benny’s trials and tribulations in military academy. The volume was edited by Xanna Eve Chown, who was a pleasure to work with.
So, whether you’re a fan or a newcomer, I hope that you’ll give Bernice Summerfield: In Time a look…
