Shadow of the Gallifreyan

It's been a quiet year for Altrix, but we've been busy at work behind the scenes. Our next charity Doctor Who anthology, in aid of Shelter, will be our first release in 2023. We are delighted to reveal this superb cover art by writer and illustrator Simon A Brett. Simon is a regular member of the Strangers in Space  podcast and the artist behind the stunning cover for Paul's Professor Howe book The Holy Hotel

Featuring flash-fiction from a huge variety of writers and fans, Shadow of the Gallifreyan tells the stories of what happened next to some of the people and places the Doctor left behind on their adventures. How would the Doctor be remembered, did things go as they would have liked or expected? 

These stories are told from the perspective not of the Doctor's regular companions, but often from characters we might have even forgotten about. Some get their happy endings, others not so much, but for all of them life would never be the same again.

More news early next year, but in the meantime a very happy holiday season to all our readers!

Paul and Kara.

Shadow of the Gallifreyan - Update


The deadline for receiving submissions for our next charity anthology (in aid of Shelter) has now passed and we are beginning to edit the pieces.  But don't worry if you have missed it. With so many stories to cover and writers to feature, this was always going to take some time and we are hoping to have the book ready for publication by the end of the year. If you have reserved stories for the collection, but have yet to send in your work, do get in touch to let us know how things are progressing. 

If you missed out on the initial call for pitches, there are still a number of slots available. We plan to approach a number of writers directly to fill in the gaps, but if you'd like to be part of this exciting project then do get in touch with us at and we will send you all the details.

For those looking forward to reading the book, we can tell you that you are in for a treat. This is going to be something quite special judging from the excellent stories we've received so far.
