Of the Future is a new addition to the forthcoming Lineage anthology, from Candy Jar Books.
Fully approved by Reeltime Pictures, and written by range editor Andy Frankham-Allen, it sees Kate Lethbridge-Stewart reunited with her legendary father (Brigadier Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart, long-time friend and associate of The Doctor).
"It's a great to finally make this happen. Keith, Marc and I have been in discussion for a while now about bringing Kate into the LSverse, and what initially began as a cameo in another Lineage story, has evolved into something much bigger.Lineage, a collection of stories from the history of the Lethbridge-Stewart family, is due out in the summer, but can be pre-ordered now.
"Of the Future is just the start, and takes us right back to the moment that tore Kate and her father apart, setting up the situation we found them in, in Marc Platt's Downtime.
"Marc, who created Kate for Downtime in 1995, with Mervyn Haisman's approval, is very happy with the story I've put together, which is good enough for me."
