it was amazing
bookshelves: blackcoat-press, doctor-who

Imagine if Jules Verne had written Doctor Who. That's what this translation of a French novel from 1910 feels like. Course the translators of this new edition added a few tweaks to strengthen that impression.
A wonderous space/time machine takes young Denis, the mysterious Doctor Omega and Fred ( who they never really explain) from Normandy France to Mars, where they encounter the usual kinds of creatures that lived on Mars back in Victorian and pulp literature.

Lots of fun, full of big sci-fi ideas, adventure and a very dry sense of humor.
Blackcoat Press keeps talking about doing a series of New Doctor Omega stories and I would love to read them as the characters have so much potential.
