UNEARTHED Authors: Meet John Peel


Sci-fi congoers and fans of Doctor Who—among other things!—will already know of John Peel. He's known in the Who community for being one of a very few people to commit Terry Nation’s* legendary Daleks to print, both in TV novelizations and original books. Star Trek and Eerie, Indiana fans may also be familiar with his books in those franchises.

And he's joining us for Unearthed!

John's done much more than contribute to the lore of your favorite shows, though. He's the creator of the Dragonhome, Diadem, and 2099 series as well. And he's contributed to a variety of anthologies, including charity works!



So what will you find him in right now? Most recently, he penned his very first audio play as part of the Sounds of Thunder 2019 annual. Toby Hadoke stars in the production, which also features writing from Kate Orman, Simon A. Brett, and more. Check out the website to find out more!

Plus, his short story "The Gutter God" appears in the anthology Tales of the Shadowmen 15: Trompe l'Oeil.

Coming soon, you can read his contribution to the charity anthology Unearthed, coming from Altrix Books and raising funds for the American Research Center in Egypt. What can you expect? Obviously we don't want to give too much away, but his story deals with a a pair of resurrectionists who dig where they shouldn't, and come up with much more than they bargained for.

Check out John's story, and many more, in Unearthed this spring! And to follow his work, drop a like on his Facebook page!
