What is there left to say about Iris Wildthyme — transtemporal adventuress extraordinaire, metafictional explorer of texts and subtexts, double-decker-dwelling interstellar bag-lady, amnesia-prone political and sexual revolutionary, writer of wrongs, wronger of rights (especially copyrights), all-round champion of freedom, occasional nightclub singer and frequent bar-room floozy?
Well, there’s always something.
A collection of brand new stories, taking the transtemporal adventuress and her trusty companion Panda all the way from snowy Darlington to the literal end of the universe (and beyond!), visiting friends old and new on the way. With an introduction by Iris’ alter-ego, Katy Manning, original artwork by legendary Doctor Who artist June Hudson and new stories from Paul Magrs, Philip Purser-Hallard and Steve Cole amongst many others. There really is always something new in the headlights of Iris’ trusty number 22 bus to Putney Common!
