Artemis

Andy Weir

Ever had a bad day? Try having one on the moon...

'Fascinating' Tim Peake, Sunday Times bestselling author of Ask an Astronaut

------------------------------------------

WELCOME TO ARTEMIS. The first city on the moon.
Population 2,000. Mostly tourists.
Some criminals.

Jazz Bashara is one of the criminals. She lives in a poor area of Artemis and subsidises her work as a porter with smuggling contraband onto the moon. But it’s not enough.

So when she’s offered the chance to make a lot of money she jumps at it. But though planning a crime in 1/6th gravity may be more fun, it’s a lot more dangerous…

Doctor Who: Mawdryn Undead

Peter Grimwade (and others)

David Collings reads this dynamic classic novelisation of a Fifth Doctor TV adventure

“This range of classic Target audiobooks continues to go from strength to strength…” Doctor Who Magazine

Materialising to avoid a head-on collision in space, the TARDIS becomes trapped on board an eerily deserted alien spacecraft. The Doctor transmats to Earth to solve the problem — yet when the TARDIS follows on, Tegan and Nyssa find that they have arrived five years too early.

While the Doctor enjoys a reunion with Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart in 1983, in 1977 his companions are confronted by a hideously deformed figure who claims to be the Doctor. Unsure whether or not this is their friend, Tegan and Nyssa must choose whether to answer his desperate pleas for help.

Meanwhile, schoolboy Turlough has an encounter with a mysterious stranger who’s determined to wreak revenge upon the Doctor. This is the Black Guardian, and Turlough is to do his bidding…

David Collings, who has appeared in several Doctor Who TV serials, reads Peter Grimwade’s complete and unabridged novelisation, first published by Target Books in 1983.

Running time: 3 hours 50 mins.

Doctor Who: Horrors of War

Justin Richards (and others)

Katy Manning reads this original adventure featuring the Third Doctor and Jo Grant, set in the First World War.

"Somewhere in this hospital there is a man, or a woman, who has been possessed by the raw energy of time.”

The year is 1914, and the Great War is just getting started. In a field hospital in Ypres, Belgium, Nurse Annie Grantham receives two visitors: a distinguished doctor and his administrative assistant, Miss Grant. They have many questions to ask of Annie, and of her distressed and wounded charges.

The Doctor is returning to a scenario he encountered long ago: a version of the First World War where the Archduke Ferdinand wasn’t murdered, leading to changes all along the subsequent timeline. He now suspects that someone is at large in 1914, intervening in events with some unknown purpose.

What force is causing injured soldiers to disappear into the night? Does the answer to the mystery lie in Sarajevo, six months earlier, at the scene of that assassination attempt? With the help of the TARDIS, the Doctor and his friends are about to find out. Duration: 1 hour 8 mins.

Katy Manning, who played Jo in the BBC TV series, reads this intriguing new story by Justin Richards.
