Hi and welcome to inferno-fiction.co.uk
Hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas and New Year wherever you are in the world and I hope 2015 will be kind to you.
Issue NINETEEN should be online at the end of January so work is moving ahead in getting the issue together, hopefully on time! Don't forget if you have any contributions that you wished to be considered for this and future issues then email them to: infernofiction@gmail.com A list of stories that will feature in issue NINETEEN will appear shortly.
You may have noticed a few changes to issue SEVENTEEN. 'Veil of the Rani' has been dropped this is due to the none receipt of part two which should have been included in issue EIGHTEEN. I've contacted its author on several occasions and as I have not (as yet) received a reply I had no choice but to drop it. This meant that a new cover has been created thanks to Metal-Potato-Alex at deviantART who has allowed us to use 'The Most Elementary of Errors' for Julie Kay's 'In Her Absence' which is a multi-piece telling the story of Madam Vastra; of her adventures and her first encounter with the Doctor.
In light of us having to drop someone's contribution to Inferno Fiction, this will now mean that anyone submitting a multi-part piece of fiction will have to submit the complete works as we don't wish to be in this position again. Should the author eventually submit the complete 'Veil of the Rani' then we will include it in a future issue. Apologies for anyone who may have enjoyed this piece of fiction and was looking forward to its completion, but I hope you understand the action we have taken.
Harmony by Meg MacDonald (aka The bunny in the tardis ) is still availble to view on line. Just follow the link below or the links situated at the end of each piece of fiction submitted to the site. Just check out the contents of each issue located to the right of the site.
And don't forget Al Dickerson's Novella, The Boy's Upstairs is still available to view. Just follow the link.
Early issues of INFERNO FICTION, issues ONE to EIGHT have already migrated to another server. Other issues will follow over a period time I hope this doesn't ruin your enjoyment of the site.
There will be some new artwork popping up here and there amongst already existing stories as I find the time to cobble some new pieces of artwork to freshen up some of the pages. I've already made a start as you'll see in parts one and two of 'Where Dead Men Slumber', part one of 'Judas Priest' and 'Voices From The Past'.
If you're new to the site, then welcome. I hope you enjoy what you see and are inspired to contribute in anyway. If so, then please, contact me at the email address: infernofiction@gmail.com

The new issue of Doctor Who Magazine discusses the loves and lives of Clara Oswald: DWM asks Jenna if the Doctor and Clara can finally move on in their relationship – and after the sacrifice of Danny Pink, can things ever be the same again? "I think so," Jenna says.
"But they are a bit addicted to each other, and to the dynamic that they share. It's getting so that one can't go without the other, and I think that's definitely what Clara's realised. In a way that's quite dangerous now, because she realises that there is no going back for her..."

If we were a little bit sexist, then we'll say that waiting for a new Issue of Fish Fingers and Custard is woman, who will turn up fashionably late. So, just imagine that woman turns up 3 months late? You're not bothered, because she's great, she's different. Beautiful, funny, masterful, if you will. What a woman.  Well, we're nothing like that, apart from being 3 months late, we contain the same-old love and spelling mistakes that you've come to expect.

Anyway, here are the details of how to buy the new issue, which has got nothing to do with Series 8, despite the rubbish I've just written above:
For a finely-printed, but adequately put-together paper copy of the fanzine, the prices are as follows:

UK - £2
Rest of the World - £4.50

To order a copy, please send the payment that applies to you, via PayPal to fishcustardfanzine@googlemail.com (please mark your payment as a 'gift' so we get the full fee from PayPal so we can buy more knocked-off paper from the local stationers).  Alternatively, you can buy one from our shop, prices inflated by 25p or so because of PayPal fees. The swines.

We have also re-printed the first 4 Issues of the fanzine to celebrate 4 years of us taking the Fanzine World like a mild breeze. Each re-printed Issue will come with a unique code number, slipped in somewhere, so nobody tries to rip people off when we've made it and old mags are selling for £20k a pop.Yeah.
Sadly, we can only offer this deal to people who reside in the UK at the moment.
First 4 Issues: £7

Please use any of the above payment methods to order.

Issue 15 is also available as a download from here.

FINALLY! We're open for submissions for Issue 16, which we hope to release in early 2015. We'll be looking at Series 8, as well as the upcoming Christmas Special. If you'd like to send in any reviews, thoughts or rants about Series 8 or any 2014 episode, please e-mail us at fishcustardfanzine@googlemail.com

If you despise new Doctor Who - you can send us anything that vaguely relates to the classic series too!
More details of other new fanzines can be found here 

It seems that the printed form of the fanzine is almost dead with many choosing the option of downloading instead. If you have a fanzine and you wish for it to be featured here on INFERNO FICTION then please forward the details to infernofiction@gmail.com
In the meantime you can look back at fanzines past in the FANZINE VAULT which will be updated soon.

Drawn off-course, the TARDIS passes through a CVE into a closed universe – a hugely improbable event with a tragically obvious cause. In order to escape inescapable E-Space, the Doctor, Nyssa, Tegan and Turlough are forced to venture in the wilds of planet Alzarius.

But they're not the only unwanted visitors to this strange world. A Starliner has landed, captained by Decider Merrion – but why would Merrion risk rousing the Planet that Slept, and the monsters in its marshes?

Mistfall is coming. The Marshmen are coming. But while Nyssa and Turlough find themselves caught in the open, in the hands of fanatics who model themselves on the legendary Outlers, the Doctor and Tegan discover that the supposedly secure Starliner affords them no protection from monsters both within and without...

Starring: Peter Davison as The Doctor, Janet Fielding as Tegan, Sarah Sutton as Nyssa and Mark Strickson as Turlough with  Jemma Redgrave as Decider Lana Merrion
available from BIG FINISH

Candy Jar Books has announced a new series of novels featuring Colonel Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart. Created by writers Mervyn Haisman and Henry Lincoln and played by Nicholas Courtney, Lethbridge-Stewart first appeared in the 1968 serial The Web of Fear. He subsequently became a major recurring character in the classic series, appearing on television with six Doctors and returning decades later in The Sarah Jane Adventures. (Including appearances in books, audios and comics, Lethbridge-Stewart has appeared with ten Doctors in authorised Doctor Who stories.) The character was referred to in several 21st-century episodes of Doctor Who before Nicholas Courtney's death in 2011; the Doctor learned of Lethbridge-Stewart's demise in the 2011 episode The Wedding of River Song, and a version of the character appeared in this year's Death in Heaven.

The new novel series will feature the young Lethbridge-Stewart, and will be set shortly after the events of The Web of Fear. The novels, which will be released quarterly, are:

The Forgotten Son by Andy Frankham-Allen
Horror of Det-Sen by Lance Parkin
The Schizoid Earth by David A McIntee
Mutually Assured Domination by Nick Walters

The novels are fully licensed by the executor of the Haisman Literary Estate, Mervyn Haisman’s granddaughter Hannah Haisman, and endorsed by Henry Lincoln. The first novel will be released on February 22, 2015, four years after the death of Nicholas Courtney.
