Reseña del editor
With a new introduction by Amelia Williams, as well as a rare interview with the reclusive author, 'The Girl Who Never Grew Up'.
Summer Falls by Amelia Williams
In the seaside village of Watchcombe, young Kate is determined to make the most of her last week of summer holiday. But when she discovers a mysterious painting entitled ‘The Lord of Winter’ in a charity shop, it leads her on an adventure she never could have planned. The painting is a puzzle - and with the help of some bizarre new acquaintances, she plans on solving it…
(Inspired by the Doctor Who episode 'The Bells of Saint John')
The Angel’s Kiss by Melody Malone
Detective Melody Malone has an unexpected caller: movie star Rock Railton thinks someone is out to kill him – and when he mentions the ‘kiss of the Angel’, she takes the case. At the press party for Railton’s latest movie, studio owner Max Kliener invites Melody to become their next star. But the cost of fame, she’ll soon discover, is greater than anyone could possibly imagine.
(Inspired by the Doctor Who episode, 'The Angels Take Manhattan')
Devil in the Smoke, as recounted by Mr Justin Richards
On a cold day in December, two young boys, tired of sweeping snow from the workhouse yard, decide to build a snowman – and are confronted with a strange and grisly mystery. In horrified fascination, they watch as their snowman begins to bleed... The search for answers to this impossible event will plunge Harry into the most hazardous – and exhilarating – adventure of his life.
(Inspired by the Doctor Who episode, 'The Snowmen')

Amelia Pond, best known as Amy Pond (the girl who waited) from the Who franchise serves up a trio of short stories that make their way as a book into the series (okay, so Justin Williams actually writes the book, but really, that’s just in this timeline). From a small village in England whose summer is ended abruptly to Melody Malone investigating the Angels in Manhattan to a tale including Strax, Madame Vastra and Jenny, Summer Falls and Other Stories does not disappoint Whovians of any age.
Summer Falls is a story in which we can see Amy Pond (as a child)–her name is Kate, but the story is completely based on Amy’s childhood. She is entrusted to solve a mystery and save the town she and her mother just moved to, but there are darker, colder forces at play and Kate will need all her wits about her to save the town from eternal winter.
The Angel’s Kiss is a thinly-veiled River Song story. In fact, the doctor and River use it within an episode of the series in order to solve a mystery, themselves. The setting is in Manhattan, and features the Weeping Angels, which happen to be one of my favorite Who villains of all time. I especially like that they stuck to the timeline within the episode. However, there are two important chapters that are missing (where the titles were just read) and I think longtime fans will know what I’m talking about.
Devil in the Smoke: An Adventure for the Great Detective is the final novella in this grouping, and features Madame Vastra (the Great Detective), Strax and Jenny in victorian-esque London. Two boys stumble upon a snowman that bleeds human blood and set forth a mystery to the likes which Vastra has never seen. And longtime fans will definitely appreciate the way she works the case, along with Strax and Jenny.
I liked this book a lot more than I thought I might, and I think it was the perfect read for this dreary week in California. The best books are always read curled up under a blanket in the midst of weather.
You can get a copy of this book for yourself in paperback and ebook formats–the stories, themselves are available individually in ebook format from your favorite retailer.
Summer Falls reads a bit like a lost episode of Dr. Who, where the Doctor is very much not the center of the story. The Angel's Kiss is set before the episode Angels take Manhattan an tells another adventure of Melody Malone (still not explaining why she is there in the first place). Devil in Smoke is everyone's anticipated adventure involving Straxx, Madame Vastra, and Jenny and lives up to the billing.
