Who’s 50: The 50 Doctor Who Stories to Watch Before you Die

The following post originally appeared on our sister site, Itty Bitty Writer Publications.

Today we take a look at Who’s 50: The 50 Doctor Who Stories to Watch Before you Die by Graeme Burk and Robert Smith?.  This book examines the 50 top stories of Doctor Who that one must see before they die, and while for a life long fan of the show it was hard pressed to tell me to watch something I hadn’t already seen a hundred times; I can clearly respect that I am now an outlier in current Doctor Who fandom; and for the young fan, new to the show, possibly overwhelmed by the vast expanse of the shows history it can be a little daunting to go it alone.  That’s where this compendium comes in handy.

Dream Factory: The Nightmare Affair – Sneak Peek

Dream_Factory_The_Nightmare_AffairChapter 11

Holly Grant was never happier to see her father then when he returned from a long trip. It was one of the things she missed about living in California the most, every time that there were changes needed on the movie’s script he needed to travel now. He used to just go to the production company’s studios and solve the problem, he was almost always home for dinner and sometimes with a movie star in tow. Bill Grant had to leave between Christmas and New Years to resolve some issues with the filming of The Nightmare Affair, even though the set was closed and all of the actors were off for the holidays. He returned on the Friday after New Years and was waiting for Holly when she got back from her abbreviated school week. Continue reading “Dream Factory: The Nightmare Affair – Sneak Peek”

Queers Dig Time Lords (Reposted from IBW)

This is a repost of an article that appeared on IBW Publications yesterday, but I felt as though this audience deserved the insite as well into this fantastic book.

In the nearly 7 years that Itty Bitty Writer Publications and the 11 years C. W. Buechler Online have been a major part of our life we have had some interesting opportunities presented to us, none more so than the opportunity to review the upcoming addition to the _________ Dig Time Lords series of anthologies that explore what Doctor Who means to whatever the “Blank” is.  In this case we were honored to review “Queers Dig Timelords.” Continue reading “Queers Dig Time Lords (Reposted from IBW)”

Status of C W Buechler Online

sq13.jpgWe just wanted to let everyone know what is up with IBW and CWBuechler Online.  Essentially we are swamped with numerous Paying Job stresses and non-paying job stresses and as such we are posting the bare minimum to keep the site up and running.  We hope that after the corporate office moves of IBW, the successful conclusion of many work-a-day projects to pay the bills, and a few other concerns that are occupying 110% of our time we can return to our normal posting schedule.

Dream_Factory_The_Nightmare_AffairPrologue:

This is the story of a girl and her father, rather unremarkable in many senses.  The girl, who’s name is Holly is like every other twelve year old girl, she worries about friends, what cloths she is wearing and if that cute boy down the street was ever going to notice her.  For the record he might in a few years after he discovers that his time is better spent chasing girls then laughing at fart jokes and digging holes in his father’s otherwise meticulously groomed backyard.

Prison Break

 

imagesGarrand Foster was a man who looked beat by the system.  He was nearly sixty years old, and enjoyed a full head of hair; although most days now he spent his time pulling it out in thick clumps out of frustration.  He had been the warden at Saint Ive’s Island Maximum security prison for over twenty years, and had enjoyed a very quiet existence within the United Stated Penal Code enforcement agency for his entire tenure.  This was a very good thing for a man twenty –pounds overweight and prone to heart disease.  Being transported from the dock to the gates of the prison by one of his guards the Warden dreaded going into his office, just as he had for the past six months.

Short Story – Prison Break

 imagesConfessions of a killer

I suppose I deserved to be here, but there are better reasons for my current living situation then the one I was convicted of.    My name is Cerius Brown and I have the pleasure of six by eight feet of state provided living accommodations.  The only requirement is that I am not allowed to leave, ever again.  I am not exactly restricted from interacting with the others in my cell block, I have access to a number of fellow inmates, but I am not allowed outside the confines of the prison, not even to the exercise yard.  But I digress because I am skipping ahead, I feel like I need to explain what brought me to the maximum security wing of St. Ive’s Island State Penitentiary.

Chapter 2 : In which dreams become true

Butterflies drifted over Holly’s head as she lay sleeping in her bed .

Earth Union Academy: Prologue

Prologue

In the darkened room of the tyrant’s chambers, a solitary figure sat on his throne. His head was hanging low; he had known this day would arrive eventually. He had just thought that it would be later, much later. The man was of smallish frame for his people, although next to the average human he would have appeared large. Broad muscular shoulders hung low, burdened by the weight of his father’s cloak. His head hung even lower with the weight of his father’s crown. Continue reading “Earth Union Academy: Prologue”
