Oh my! I need every one of these. Especially Festival of Death, which I've had the pleasure of reading in an earlier edition, and which was one of the most delightful Classic Who novels I've read to date. :D

3, 6, 8, 10, 2, 1, 5, 4, 7, 9, 11... aaaaa! They're all out of order! *flail*

(I can't be the only one who thought this...)

Nice covers, and another great idea to commemorate the 50th anniversary.
@2 They were put into chronological order by River Song! ;-)

Why is there one novelization (Remembrance of the Daleks) among the group? There are any number of Seventh Doctor novels, with quite a few stand-alones if one is trying to avoid The Cartmel Masterplan in one's series of reissued novels.

@ Jago: It's still one of the most influential pieces of Doctor Who fiction ever published, setting the tone for the Virgin novels and providing scads of Dalek lore. Plus, it's still a cracking good read!

Also, I am sure that they wanted to include at least one Dalek book, and their choices are this, "Prisoner of the Daleks," and "War of / Legacy of the Daleks," which stinks.

I know I'll probably get all the books anyway to have the entire set for the Anniversary, but are they all good reads?
