As mentioned in the cover blurb, this was the third (and last) collection of drabbles produced by Beccon Publications — the first two (non-Who related, so not listed in this site) were the sci-fi themed The Drabble Project in 1988, and Drabble II: Double Century in 1990.

The inside cover flaps read as follows:

This book is the 3rd collection of Drabbles to be produced and, in common with the first two volumes, contains one hundred stories.

Each story has exactly one hundred words, with up to fifteen more for titles or subtitles.

The publication of this book coincides with the 30th anniversary of Dr Who, which was first shown on British television on 23rd Nov 1963.

All the authors in this book, both amateur and professional, together with the editors and publisher have waived their rights to any share of the profits. All profits will be donated to the RNIB Talking Book Fund.

David J. Howe is co-author of two series of ongoing factual books on Doctor Who. He provides a monthly book review column for Starburst magazine and is currently editor of the British Fantasy Society Newsletter. He is married, lives in Surrey and cannot see the attraction of carnivorous plants.

David B. Wake is the same age as Doctor Who and, although his surname isn’t a question, he has the same initials. He produced Birmingham University SF Society’s magazine “The Six Chairbeings”. He was the sixth Chairbeing. He lives in Bournville where he is converting his garden into a golf course.
