Michael Scott and Doctor WHO?
It's a good day to be a humani!!!
Today we learned that Micheal Scott has been selected to be part of the elite list of authors penning a short story for the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary!
What we know is this, that there are 11 authors who are each writing a short story about one of the Doctor's incarnations. On the 23rd of each month an ebook story will be released, leading up to the November 23rd 50th Anniversary date. Then a paperback anthology containing all the shorts will be released near the end of the year.
Michael's story will be centered around the 2nd Doctor, who was portrayed by Patrick Troughton on the classic television series, and is titled "The Nameless City". Below is a bit of story information from Amazon's page:
"When Jamie McCrimmon brings the Second Doctor a mysterious book, little does he realise the danger contained within its pages. The book transports the TARDIS to a terrifying glass city on a distant world, where the Archons are intent on getting revenge on the Time Lord for an ancient grudge."
The short story is slated to be release on the 23rd of February in ebook format only. And, a promotional video featuring Michael will be released on the 11th.
The 1st Doctor's story was released in January, and was penned by Eion Colfer, noted author of the Artemis Fowl series.
Are you excited about this??? Come over to our Twitter or Facebook pages and tell us what you think about this news!!!
And, be sure to send Michael your congratulations via his Twitter.

Issues With The Forum...
Recently the Forumer IPB platform that we use for our forum was bought by a new company who do not use that format. We had no control over this action! What this means to you as our member is that you will now be required by the new platform owner, Yuku, to join them as a member to be able to access our forum. Joining is free but I would like to ask our younger members, those under 13 years of age, to please seek parental approval before you do so, as the Yuku platform is a form of Social Networking. Your forum member name has been transferred over to the new Yuku site, but you will be asked to enter a new password.
We're sorry to say the forum does not currently look like it used to, but we're working to resolve that and to get the forum back to a design and look that you're more familiar with and will be as close to the one you know as we can get it.
We thank you for bearing with us during this upheaval and hope to see you online soon!

We've just found out that AMPCO Films has released a VERY cool teaser poster for the film adaptation of The Alchemyst: Secrets of Nicholas Flamel!!
Right off the bat, you'll notice that they have dropped "Immortal" from the title, and do not appear to be staying with the green coloring of the book's cover thus far.
The poster is really cool looking, and we're very excited to see what's coming next!
