Hi and welcome to inferno-fiction.co.uk
Apologies if you were expecting to see issue NINETEEN on line by now. I have not had much in the way of internet here at home as I have switched providers which has proved to be more problematic than I had hoped. So, I'm doing my utmost to get the issue on line as soon as possible. Updates will appear on the facebook and blog pages so keep an eye for that.
Pleased to say that the first few pieces of fiction featured in issue NINETEEN of inferno fiction are online: THE FOUR WISE MEN by Michael Baxter and RETURN OF THE WIRRN by Matthew Senkowski. More submissions for issue NINETEEN will be online as soon as the artwork is complete. Check out the blog pages and facebook for any updates.
Both the BOOK PAGE and AUDIO PAGES have been updated with details of the lastest on offer from BBC BOOKS and BIG FINISH
Big thank you to all our new followers on facebook, as a result you'll be able to see news of any site updates as they happen.
While I am busy with issue NINETEEN, I'm still looking ahead to the TWENTIETH issue and as inferno fiction reaches this mile stone it will be a special edition so I would like to receive as many contributions as possible. No deadline as such, just yet but the sooner I receive them thou the better. So send any contributions you may have to: infernofiction@gamail.com
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

In the new issue of Doctor Who Magazine lead writer Steven Moffat reflects on last year's series and tells DWM how the Doctor might change in the next season...

"We're not bringing him back exactly as we left him, at all, I think that was already evident at Christmas. He's left some of the burden of being a superhero of the universe behind. So I'm pushing him – I'm writing quite funny this year – I'm pushing him the other way..."

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!

A Great Darkness is spreading over E-Space. Entropy increases. In search of a last exit to anywhere, the TARDIS arrives on the power-less planet of Apollyon, where the scientist Pallister guards the only way out – a mysterious portal. But the portal needs power to open, and the only power Pallister can draw on is the energy contained within the molecular bonds of all living tissue...

The Doctor, Nyssa, Tegan and Turlough soon learn that neither Pallister nor his ally, the space pirate Captain Branarack, will stop at murder to ensure their escape. But they're not the only menace on Apollyon. The Sandmen are coming – creatures that live on the life force; that live on death.

Death is the only way out into N-Space. Death, or sacrifice.

But whose death?

Whose sacrifice?

Starring Peter Davison as The Doctor, Mark Strickson as Turlough, Sarah Sutton as Nyssa and Janet Fielding as Tegan
available from BIG FINISH
