A number of discount offers have been added to the website.

There is also a new LAST CHANCE TO BUY section on the site, highlighting several titles where we are down to the last few copies, and which no further reprints are planned, so this is an ideal time for fans to complete their collections or to sample some of our award-winning and critically acclaimed horror fiction.

FULL COLOUR TOYBOX

HOWE’S TRANSCENDENTAL TOYBOX is the only guide to all DOCTOR WHO merchandise and collectibles. While we are preparing the next update volume (to cover everything released in 2006 and 2007), the UPDATE NUMBER 2 edition, which covers 2004 and 2005, has sold out in its standard edition. Therefore we are using the opportunity to take advantage of new digital printing processes to offer a limited reprint of the book, but in full colour throughout! The original edition was in black and white and, to be honest, we were less than pleased with the quality of the printing. So we hope that this full colour edition will make up for that. This is something of an experiment, to see how well the process works, and how the sales and costings pan out, but if this all goes well, then we also hope to print the next new Update edition in full colour.

As the price of the colour printing is more than black and white, the price of the book has been raised from £7.99 to £12.99, but we believe that this represents incredible value for 161 pages in FULL COLOUR!
