Higson pens introduction for classic Doctor Who novel

I always enjoy it when my various fanboy passions cross-pollinate. It's surprising just how many of my fellow Houdini buffs also have an interest in Universal Monsters, or how many of my fellow James Bond fans also love Sherlock Holmes. He's another happy collision. Young Bond author Charlie Higson has written the introduction for a reprint of a classic Doctor Who novel, Doctor Who and the Crusaders (Amazon.co.uk).

What I'd really like to see is Charlie writing episodes for the new series. With his deft handling of horror, children stories, and screenwriting, he seems a natural.

Doctor Who and the Crusaders will be released on July 1, 2011. Higson's next Enemy novel, The Fear, will be released in September.
