it was amazing

I'm horrifically biased but this collection of stories is fantastic. So many great stories, including three of the Doctor Who variety featuring everybody's favorite technicolour Time Lord. A lot of them hold some killer twists at the end but they are in no way contrived or heavily telegraphed to the point of being obvious. Also, keep a dictionary close at hand; Colin loves him some SAT-level vocabulary. If I had to choose a favorite story from this book, it would be a three-way tie between "Poison Pen", "Rosita", and "A Tourist Invasion".

Everyone who even remotely enjoys Doctor Who or a cracking good read should pick up a copy so that Mister Baker will have more incentive to release another volume of stories in the future. Pretty please?
