More About the Author

I'm the author of more than twenty books, including science-fiction, thriller, and crime novels, several collections of short stories, a Doctor Who novella, and an anthology of stories about popular music, which I co-edited with Kim Newman. My fiction has won the Philip K. Dick Memorial Award, the Arthur C. Clarke Award, the John W. Campbell award, the Sidewise Award, the Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award, and the British Fantasy Award for best short story.

Before I went over to the dark side and became a full-time writer, I worked as a research biologist in various universities, including Oxford and UCLA, and for six years was a lecturer in botany at St Andrews University. My chief research interest was symbioses between unicellular algae and coelenterates, including green hydra, sea anemones, and reef-forming corals. I'm still a huge fan of all things to do with science, and spend too much time tweeting about weird and wonderful stuff as UnlikelyWorlds; Time magazine listed me as one of their top 140 most interesting tweeters in 2013.

I live in North London, and haven't yet walked down every street in the A-Z. But I'm trying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doctor Who the way you like it... 20 Mar 2004
By S. Bentley VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
The Telos novellas have produced some of the best Doctor Who fiction in a good few years. Part of this is because there is no effort to have an ongoing continuity between stories, ensuring that the authors of the novellas are telling the stories that they want to tell. The other part is that the editors of the range have managed to pull in established authors not usually connected to Doctor Who fiction. Kim Newman, Louise Cooper and, yes, Paul J. McCauley have produced brilliant works that do not play on the perception of Who as a cult, but rather produce strong stories that happen to feature the Doctor as protagonist. (This is not to say that those contributors to the range that have already produced Doctor Who novels haven't pulled their weight. Kate Orman and Jonathan Blum's contribution may be better than their recent offerings for the BBC and Daniel O'Mahoney has produced the star work of the range.)
McCauley's novella however is the most excellent example of the boy's own adventures that typified the best Who TV stories. Indeed, it starts out as an admixture of Edwardian pulp adventure in a Conan Doyle/ Rider Haggard vein, albeit with a science fiction twist, before shifting through hard SF elements, and ending in a gothic fairy tale, complete with pure hearted hero, beautiful princess and a mysterious father. Not only that but the story is an Eighth Doctor adventure and one that we can only wish was filmed. It reads very well and piles on idea after idea to the extent that more is packed into this novella than in the average 285 page novel. And it never feels too full.
Add to that a nostalgic foreword by Neil Gaiman and you have the perfect package to tide you over until the new TV series is broadcast.
