Description:  Anthology of short stories set in Paradise Towers, the futuristic apartment block seen in the 1987 Doctor Who TV story of the same name.

Cover blurb:
"Like Doctor Who itself, Paradise Towers has had a bumpy ride. Those who like it, like it a lot. Those who don’t, loathe it and often voted it one of the worst Doctor Who stories ever written"

Stephen Wyatt, from his introduction

Proving that it’s the fans of the story who have it right, seventeen writers revisit the towers, in everything from drabbles to academic papers to scripted plays, demonstrating that the world Stephen created over thirty years ago remains one of the most fascinating and well rounded in the history of Doctor Who.
