So was Anacrophobia one of the best Doctor Who books I've read? Yup. Strijng for the best part of the book telling a great under siege story with some genuinelyu creepy monsters. It falls over a little towards the end: basically anything after they arrive in the city. The idea of the war being directed by an inteligence who's lost contact with it's superiors seems very familiar from somewhere. I think the Doctor's soloution was clever but I was rather tired when I got to that bit. And the late in the day reveal that a character that's been in most of the book is a recurring DW Book character felt a bit shoe horned in with very little lead up (except, perhaps, for a small clue in the name if you've read later DW Books)
It's very good, only let down by the following book completely ignoring the (almost) cliffhanger ending. It was, though, the only time I was actually surprised by the appearance of Recurring Character as opposed to most of the books of the era which often just marked time until they turned up.
Lungbarrow is a bit of a chore to get through, but has some nice ideas. It's probably just a couple of drafts away from really working as a story rather than an elaborate info-dump. Well worth a read though.
So having finished all the EDAs I'd bought recently I thought I should give Gallifrey Chronicles another go. A great fun romp with the first half being a small crisis for the Doctor while the second half is a global threat. Lots of references in there: There's a book called The Witch Lords on the shelf (which the writer of The Discontinuity Guide spotted but he missed that the Restraunt was called the Red Fort (proposed Terry Nation Indian Mutiny historical). Loved it more than ever this time. Probably makes no sense without reading some of the previous books!
I think we'll give Infinity Doctors a whirl before dealing with the NA pile.
