Reading Roundup Wrapup: July 2012

I've been gone, faithful blog-readers! But now I'm back. (I was on a bona fide vacation.) And though I haven't been writing up my books, I have been reading them...

Pick of the month: Campaign: An Adventure In Time And Space by Jim Mortimore. This might not be the best Doctor Who novel ever published, but it's certainly close. And best of all, you can download it for free, since strictly speaking, it's a piece of fanfiction. But written by a professional author.
