There's been little information about this, but a few of the EDAs are set to be released out as Kindle versions at the end of the month. This could possibly mean more releases in the future and a great way to express interest in these books (if you don't have a Kindle, you can read Kindle books on your computer and all sorts of other stuff).

I'd love to know if anyone has any more information about these releases. I tried contacting BBC books for some information, but haven't received any response.

In the meantime - definitely order one or more of these if you have the spare cash!

I had a search through Amazon and these were the EDAs that are getting released. Most are Lance Parkin titles:

Father Time - August 31st

The Gallifrey Chronicles - August 31st

Trading Futures - August 31st

The Year of Intelligent Tigers - Possibly. No formal release date.

Non-EDAs:

Infinity Doctors - August 30th

Bunker Soldiers (one, steven, dodo) - Available now.

Edit to add:
I send a message to Martin Day (author of Bunker Soldiers) asking about this. He replied, saying:

"Thanks for the message; I’m afraid I don’t know if there are plans to release more Who books on Kindle (I did get a sense that those books on Kindle were a trial to see how successful they might be). Sadly we authors are always the last to be told!"

So, unfortunately, no further news on this, except that they are probably a trial release.

I've uploaded all of the EDAs in PDF versions to this folder on mediafire. They all should be in order. For Fitz fans, his first appearance is in book nineteen The Taint and (excepting The Burning through Father Time) he's in every other book after that. You can find a more detailed list with who's in each book on Wikipedia and you can find summaries of each book at The Doctor Who Reference Guide.

Though all of these books are out of print, you can also support your public library, local used bookstore or online retailers (ebay, abebooks, amazon marketplace, etc) by checking out or buying the print versions. It is nice to have the good ol' paper versions.

Please let me know if any of the links don't work or if mediafire doesn't work for you so I can find a better solution!

And so this isn't just a resource post: what are some of your favorite EDAs? Which would you recommend to someone that hasn't read any of them?

Hey, thanks to those who participated in the last discussion!

Our next book is The Fall of Yquatine by Nick Walters! This one features a new romantic adventure for Fitz, a bit of timey-wimey-ness, and a new development in Compassion's strange condition. There's also some pie. If you're so inclined you can find more information, along with a complete synopsis and continuity notes, at the Doctor Who Reference Guide.

For anyone that's new to the discussion, here's how it goes: We've been making our way through the EDAs (Eighth Doctor Adventure novels) that feature Fitz. I post up a PDF file of the next book in the line and two weeks later we have a discussion both here at the community and in an irc chatroom. Anyone and everyone is free to join in the conversation. It's great fun and we all discover more about our favorite characters. If you feel like catching up, take a look at the EDA read-along tag for the download links (or feel free to start with this one).

As the water shot up towards him, it occurred to him that dear old Geronimo would have been puzzled to hear that he was now remembered mainly by people who were about to fall from a great height. )

Hello everyone! Our last discussion post hasn't had many responses, so if you've read Parallel 59 and have any comments to make feel free to stop by and do so.

Our next book in line is The Shadows of Avalon by Paul Cornell! haven't had the pleasure of reading this one, but anything with the Brigadier, Gallifreyan agents, and dragons dueling jet fighters can't be all bad! If you're so inclined you can find more information, along with a complete synopsis and continuity notes, at the Doctor Who Reference Guide.

Hey folks, it's that time again! (Actually, significantly past that time. Sorry for dropping off the face of the Earth for a little while there. Can I blame TARDIS malfunction?)

Our next book was totally worth the wait! It's Parallel 59 by Natalie Dallaire and Stephen Cole! This one is great for Fitz fans because nearly half of the book is narrated by him. Also, evidence is mounting about something genuinely weird happening with Compassion. HM. Sounds fascinating, doesn't it? If you're so inclined you can find more information, along with a complete synopsis and continuity notes, at the Doctor Who Reference Guide.

SO! Tell me, what did you think of the book and its plot? What about Fitz's role in the plot? What about his relationships with The Doctor, "Nancy", and Alura? Did you like the plot and the idea of the Frontier Worlds corporation?

Anything else?

Next in line is The Taking of Planet 5 by Simon Bucher-Jones and Mark Clapham! This one should be a fun read, especially if you're a Lovecraft fan. Or an Antarctica fan. Or...well, you'll just have to read and see. If you're so inclined, you can find more information, along with a complete synopsis and continuity notes at the Doctor Who Reference Guide.

Hey, everyone! Thanks for participating in the last discussion post. Please do feel free to keep discussing there if you have any thoughts to add. I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts.

Normally our next discussion would fall on Easter Sunday, so I've scheduled it for a week after. I'm sure we'll all have enough Who that weekend with the start of series five.

Our next book is Interference: Book One (Shock Tactic) by Lawrence Miles. There's quite a lot to talk about in this one, and quite a lot that gets referenced in books down the line! If you're so inclined, you can find more information, along with a complete synopsis and continuity notes at the Doctor Who Reference Guide.

As this is a two-part novel, I'll be putting up both download links now so you can finish that story at whatever pace you wish. :)

For those of you who may not be following both communities, the annual EDA ficathon is taking sign-ups over at [livejournal.com profile] henriettastreet right now. There's also an art portion this year. Sign-ups are open until 21 February, so that's loads of time to think about what you want to request. And the word minimum is over 750 words!

Go on, we all want more Fitz fic!

I've recently re-read Mark Michalowski's Halflife, and I posted some Fitz-centric discussion here on my journal. Spoilers for Halflife and some vague spoilers for some later developments in Fitz's arc (though I believe those are pretty much common knowledge).
