For some reason Amazon haven't included Piers and Rich on the contributors' section on their website. I've asked them to correct this and my apologies to both writers.

But they have included their chapters. Right?

Frankymole took like a duck to water with All Done With Mirrors. The chapter does the episode justice, which is no easy task.
Ah thanks, that's lovely to hear - it was a real headache, not wanting to undersell my favourite, and try to work out why it *is* my favourite. I hope I don't have to write any other love letters or eulogies too soon! Smile

Really looking forward to reading all the others. I don't mind little typos, all part of the joy of owning a first edition. Maybe it'll arrive when I'm still on holiday from work!

Have a lovely Christmas Rodney. And a very Merry Christmas, a Merrier Christmas (as Brandon Storey would say), to one and all!

I hope so Margo! Shocked Rodney assures me they have. Smile Rich.

There are loads of contributors not mentioned on the Amazon.co.uk version of the site, especially for Bright Horizons! I think it's a bit random.

Laughing that's terrible Rich. Your chapters are really fun to read. And we have all worked so hard on these. It seems like the book has been removed from Amazon. I am hoping it just because they are fixing it not withdrawing it from the market.

I assume it is being fixed and amazon will put it back on the market?

It was taken off while the typos were being corrected. It should be back on tomorrow.
I think what makes this the most interesting of the three volumes so far is the polarity of opinion which Tara/Thorson/Season 6 creates among viewers.
I can understand critics/fans finding it disappointing as a collective body compared to Season 4, but surely if offers more variety and depth than the colour Peel season.
Episodes such as They Keep Killing Steed, Love All, Super Secret Cypher Snatch, Requiem, All Done With Mirrors, Game, Noon Doomsday, The Rotters, The Curious Case, and False Witness are gems.

It is back on, in corrected form.

I should have mentioned that there is an interview about this new volume on Jason Whiton's website soon.
A number of readers have already expressed their delight with Frank's chapter on Take Me to Your Leader which examines the episode through the Seven Deadly Sins. Great fun and a unique approach.

enjoy it, Darren! Your chapters were great additions, particularly your exploration of Levene's final offering.

I am glad there are readers who responded to my chapter on Take Me To Your Leader.

I had just come off of Two fellers-which I put a lot of time into and a lot of words. I wanted the 2nd piece to be shorter, lighter and fun. I was going to just write about Sally Graham since she was, for me, the most memorable character in that episode. However as I thought about the other characters, that's when I started noticing how many of them embodied the different "sins".

After that the text just came spilling out of me in record time. Sometimes I wish my chapters would come that easy and that inspired Wink Laughing

Unfortunately, it doesn't work like that. However, the seven deadly sins idea gives the chapter a unique structure which is a real highlight of the book.

Congrats again. How are sales going if I may ask? Hopefully it became a good stocking stuffer.

Has anyone had time to read it yet? Finally received it after some blunders on the order.

I'm as far as Noon Doomsday so far. It's proving a very engaging read and very breezy. There's nothing really I've strongly disagreed with yet.
