One thought on “About

  1. Hello. This is a bit of a shot in the dark, but I’m looking for a physical copy of your wonderful short story “Time Fraud”. You named your villain after my friend Scott Thrower and I’d love to give it to him as a gift. He’s a huge Doctor Who fan. The Eleventh Doctor Archives #26 is available as a digital downland, but I can’t find a hard copy anywhere. Any assistance you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
