Cover blurb:
‘She has many names. Morrígu, Nermintana, the Cailleach.’

Though wearing its learning lightly, The Stones of Blood (1978) is saturated in the ancient history of Britain, from stone circles and their folklore to the names of goddesses, as well as more recent histories of archaeological investigation and the druidic revival. It also finds time to evoke the works and personal life of Virginia Woolf, predict juridical applications of artificial intelligence, and explore mathematical theories of the fourth dimension.

Katrin Thier is a historian, archaeologist and linguist.

Book-length looks at single Doctor Who stories from 1963 to the present day

“A grandly ambitious thing to attempt with something as exhaustively detailed as (Doctor Who). But they actually manage it. Treat your bookshelf."
—Doctor Who Magazine
