Note: A print-on-demand edition (linked via the Lulu logo above) was released in August 2017 to allow Australia/NZ readers to order the book with much cheaper postage costs. It is identical to the original version, except for having a glossy cover instead of the original's matt cover.
'Your evil is my good. I am Sutekh the Destroyer.'
Pyramids of Mars (1975) inherits not only the mythology of Ancient Egypt, but a long tradition of Gothic fiction, Late-Victorian imperial guilt, and a fascination with mummification and the afterlife, led to stories of reverse colonisation, later reincarnated as 20th-century horror movies. These in turn inspired the alien gods and robot mummies of Pyramids of Mars, including one of the Doctor's most frightening adversaries: Sutekh, the enemy of all life.
Kate Orman has written or co-written 13 Doctor Who novels, and a chapter in Doctor Who and Race.
