Another "everything" month for me - everything is pre-ordered already except Omega Factor, and that's only because my finances are still completely uncertain and I still have a backlog of Omega Factor and Jack Gerson audiobooks to get to so it can wait if it must, but I may well throw caution to the wind and order that too any minute. Will definitely check out the YouTube event if I'm able.
Safe to say I'm most excited about Legacy of Time, Lucie Miller, Rage of the Time Lords, and last but not least Memories of a Tyrant - welcome back, Peri!
Preordered everything DW related (naturally, some over a year in advance....I think. I feel like Legacy was announced June 2018, and that was a Day one pre-order). Anyway, what an exciting month for BF this is.
Legacy of Time: Barrels of fun. The stories could be a bunch of old tosh and I think it'll still be fun (and from what I've heard, the stories certainly aren't a bunch of old tosh). A perfect celebration of 20 years.
War Master: More War Master is never a bad thing. Whilst I think WM1 and WM2 are flawed, they're still both brilliantly done, and Scott Handcock has done wonders with the range.
Memories of a Tyrant: More Six, more Peri! It's only years in the making. And the story sounds pretty good to boot.
Serenity: Jack and Ianto, properly together finally (Broken was more of a Ianto focused story than Ianto/Jack). Plus, a TV Torchwood writer returns.
Lucie Miller: How in the hell did I forget this, the return of Lucie Bleedin' Miller. The EDA's was my very first introduction to BF. I recently relistened: Some stories weren't as good as I recall, others better. But overall, even though Lucie has moved down the list of favourites (because Liv is the best), it's still a dynamic I adore.
Battle Scars: A Ninth Doctor Short Trip, what's not to love!
So yes: I'm very excited for this month. Not to say I'm not excited every month, because every release excites me in small ways.....but this month EVERY release is exciting me!
Though question for others: I listened to The Omega Factor series and I quite liked it, though I wouldn't say it's my favourite. Nothing wrong with the series, solid cast, solid writing and I enjoyed it. It just wasn't my type of series, fair enough. But how are the books? I understand they're set during the original series (which I've not seen) and I'm wondering if I'd get enjoyment out of those. Any thoughts?
