Hi and welcome to inferno-fiction.co.uk
Well , it's that time of year again. Seems that Christmas and New Year are coming around a lot faster as it does as we get older. We've seen Peter Capaldi's first series as The Doctor, and what a mixed bag that turned out to be,  it certainly felt very different from previous years; his first Christmas Special will be upon soon, simple called Last Christmas to be shown as it has been over the years on Christmas Day, so enjoy!
Issue NINETEEN will be delayed until at least January. Later than planned, this is due to a recent bereavement which hasn't really put me in the right frame of mind to be putting the issue together plus several issues at home have been getting in the way of things so I've had very little time on my hands. Still taking any submissions, so if you have any ideas then send them in to the email address: infernofiction@gmail.com
Issue EIGHTEEN is finally complete! A big thank you to everyone who contributed to this issue, Nathan Mullins, Michael Baxter, Julie Kay, J.Arthur Rodgers, Sean Bassett, Thomas Ahearn and Samuel Marks, whose final part of 'The Fear of all Sums' features on the cover of this issue.
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.
The site has had a freshen up as you can see, hope you like it too. We're already looking for contributions to December's issue (issue NINETEEN), deadline is shorter than last time, end of November beginning of December. Gives us some time to upload, edit and produce some artwork to accompany them. So get those contributions in as soon as possible. Send them to infernofiction@gmail.com
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 links.
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
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all

The latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine features a revelation from Michelle Gomez about Missy..

"Everything about making the Master the Mistress kind of ups the ante, it makes everything that little bit more dangerous. It blows open this Pandora's box." Asked whether Missy will be returning next year, Gomez replied: "Yes. 'Yes' is my answer. I'll be back. Can I say that? Am I allowed? If not... well, I guess we'll have to see how she's received..."

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.

The TARDIS arrives in the CAGE – not a trap, but the College of Advanced Galactic Education, one of the most prestigious academic institutions in colonised space.

Not a trap. Or is it?

The Doctor’s here to receive an honorary degree in Moral Philosophy. But there’s something rotten at the heart of the Medical Facility. Someone is operating on the students. Someone without a conscience. Someone with access to a Sidelian Brain Scanner – a technology that hasn’t been invented yet.

That someone is the ruthless Time Lord scientist known as the Rani – in her new incarnation. But will the Doctor and Peri recognise the Rani’s hand before her trap is sprung?

Starring Colin Baker as The Doctor,
Nicola Bryant as Peri and introducing
Siobhan Redmond as The Rani
available from BIG FINISH November 2014

more details of new releases from BIG FINISH can be found on the audio page.

Ignorance is not bliss. It is the alien invader’s greatest advantage.

Tales of unearthly beings have long circulated among us, from legends of intelligent life on Earth before Homo Sapiens to conspiracy theories about what really happened at the Battle of Canary Wharf. But the truth is that alien life exists – and here, at last, is proof.

Based on exclusive access to classified government files, The Secret Lives of Monsters collects evidence that has been suppressed for centuries – notes from clandestine meetings, reports of eyewitness accounts, never-before-seen images and documents, secrets provided by a mysterious agent known only as ‘the Doctor’, and more. It reveals all we know about aliens who are already here, and provides essential information to survive future invasions.

So don’t panic. You are not weaponless. The Secret Lives of Monsters will give you the greatest weapon of all: knowledge.
more details of new book releases can be found here on the books page.
