Announcing ‘Look At The Size of That Thing’

LOOK AT THE SIZE OF THAT THING!
Bill Evenson and Stacey Smith?

“The most dangerous small-press non-fiction comedy Doctor Who book published in North America since The Completely Unofficial Encyclopedia.”
— Stormageddon, Dark Lord of All (translated from the original baby)

“Way too many bondage jokes!”
— Adric, live from the Hadron web

“I kind of liked it, actually.”
— Alpha Centauri, winning at strip poker

Look at the Size of That Thing! contains everything you need to know to fool everyone into believing you’re a true Doctor Who fan.

Sure, you could always actually watch every episode and reconstruction, read every novel and comic book, listen to every audio, play every game, memorize every Pixley archive, et cetera, but who has time for that? Bill Evenson and Stacey Smith?, that’s who! Since you’ve been busy, they’ve nerded it up for you and provided an irreverent and downright hilarious comedy guide to all things Doctor Who.

Like the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, contained within is a roast of everything to do with Doctor Who, from the plots to the script editors to the spinoffs to the fans themselves. Episode guides, talking points, story codes, penis jokes and which episodes you absolutely must hate with a burning passion if you’re to make it among the fan glitterati. Everything you need to fake it ’til you make it. And then some.

Look At The Size of That Thing! will be released March 15, 2021.

What The Fans Think: UFO Update

Hi all. Just a quick update on Pencil Tip Publishing’s forthcoming book on UFO. I’ve just finished laying out a first draft of the book (it’s still missing a couple of episode reviews) but bar that it’s about 90% complete. Need to get the cover art for the cover designed.

Hi all. Just a quick update on Pencil Tip Publishing’s forthcoming book on UFO.

I’ve just finished laying out a first draft of the book (it’s still missing a couple of episode reviews) but bar that it’s about 90% complete. Need to get the cover art for the cover designed. Once that’s done we’ll print up a hardcopy proof. At this point we’re on target for a possible Spring 2021 publication.

One minor thing I would like to mention is that I’d still like to get a few more essays for the book. At present we have 5 but I’d like to get at least 3 or 4 more. I’d love to include something on the two UFO novels, maybe something on the technology, or even the comic strips from Countdown & TV Action. FYI, contributors will get a contributors copy of the published book.

If you’re interested in contributing an essay, please get in touch with us at penciltippublishing@shaw.ca. Cheers.

We’re very pleased to note that writer Rick Cross has submitted us a review of our latest short-story collection Grave Warnings II: Hob House.

Hob House is the second Grave Warnings horror anthology from Pencil Tip Publishing. This sly and shivery collection of stories, edited by Craig Charlesworth and Richard Peevers, springs from an ingenious concept: Challenge a group of talented authors to deliver a series of spooky tales about the same accursed house, visiting its halls and darkest recesses across the centuries and down through the generations, pondering the lives and misfortunes of those brave or foolish enough to walk in its corridors and sleep in its dark embrace.

You can read the full review by visiting the “Reviews” section of the blog.

Rick Cross is a NASA communications writer, the author of “Lethbridge-Stewart: Times Squared” (Candy Jar Books) and a contributor to “After Sundown (Simon & Schuster), What the Fans Think: Blake’s 7” and “Outside In Trusts No One” (ATB Publishing).
