When I read in the Afterword that this guy also wrote Doctor Who: Slow Empire, my utter confusion suddenly made sense. I didn't really enjoy that book and I couldn't understand much of this one either. Lots of trippy psychic stuff and then the Doctor comes swooping in to save the day. It was difficult to care about the characters or the freaky city.

If you love the Seventh Doctor and Ace, it might be worth a read.

I loved this book. The concept and the story itself were very intriguing. It reads like a dark, menacing, surrealistic dream that, oh, by the way, the Doctor and Ace are in. The Doctor is in it very little but when he is he's very classic 7th Doctor and the author captures the character of Ace pretty much spot on. A good read if you can latch on to a copy.
Quite a twisty, atmospheric piece that nods to both Jack Vance and Samuel R. Delany. The Doctor (Seven) is barely in it -- Ace shows up more often -- but that's a positive note, really. One of the story elements is a bit obvious from early on, but that's not really an issue. One of the best of the short-lived Telos novella series.
Telos novella with the seventh Doctor, Ace. If you've read a lot of Dave Stone books, this one won't stand out.

Some interesting ideas, but also slow reading ... and a lot of these ideas have been done before.

Stone has written many spin off novels based on the BBC science fiction television series Doctor Who and Judge Dredd.

Stone also contributed a number of comic series to 2000AD and the Judge Dredd Megazine, focusing on the Dreddverse (Judge Dredd universe). In collaboration with David Bishop and artist Shaky Kane he produced the much disliked Soul Sisters, which he has described as "a joke-trip, whi
