Note:  This book was released after Virgin lost their Doctor Who publishing licence, so unlike Decalogs 1-3, this book doesn't feature the Doctor at all: instead the stories are based on the ancestors & family of New Adventures companion Roz Forrester.

Cover blurb:
Following in the tradition of three previous highly successful and acclaimed short story collections, Decalog 4 pushes back the boundaries of the imagination with a new series of ten interlinked tales.

Here for the first time is the complete future history of a remarkable family, the Forresters. Each tale chronicles a different episode in the life of the clan — from their humble roots in twentieth-century South Africa, and all through their inexorable rise to control of the galaxy-spanning Earth Empire a millennium later.

As always, the editors have assembled a dazzling array of writing talent, from up-and-coming TV script writers to acclaimed science-fiction authors. And, as before, there are the usual contributions from talented new writers.
