Cover blurb:
What sort of worlds would a Time Lord know?

Distant planets of constant night, and burning stars. Far-off spheres of horrific heat or deadly cold? Lands of awe and wonder, magic and dread. Better worlds than ours — and worse.

Now Peter Davison, TV's Doctor Who, takes you on a voyage to the deepest, most terrifying corners of the galaxy.
