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.

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).

The Brigadier’s wife is dead. A terrible accident. Grieving, he searches for death, and finds his way to Avalon, the other-dimensional kingdom of the Catuvelauni.

The Doctor is also in Avalon, marooned. He’s lost his companions, his TARDIS... and his hope for the future.

Now it seems they’ll have to make a new life for themselves with the Celts who live in the Dreamlands. Perhaps even help in the Celts’ negotiations with the Unseelie, the sinister original inhabitants of Avalon, who live far to the North.

But then a gateway opens between Earth and Avalon. The British Army arrives in force. And the Brigadier negotiates a treaty that will lead to war in the Land of Dreams.

With fearsome dragons duelling jet fighters, vicious Gallifreyan agents causing havoc, and Compassion fighting against her ultimate fate, can the Doctor save the world, his best friend, and himself?

That is the greatest cover to any book in the history of mankind.
