a brief advertising interlude ...

The Editor moonlights (when she's not editing 9:06, working, writing, or working on her PhD!) as a comic artist for a new Blakes 7 webcomic, and written by Melissa Beattie.(http://www.comicliberation.elitistgeek.net) We're starting with a single part comic, withuot an actual storyline-- just a few fun holiday snaps to test out style and the like-- but further comics will be full adventures from various times over the original series run. Stop by and have a look-- our first full story will debut the first week of November. Tell your friends, your enemies, and any random strangers that you meet!

Surfing the Zeitgeist!

That splendid fellow Mister Chinn has noted that the next issue of DWM also features Cybermen on the cover. It just goes to show TTZ has it's finger on the Doctor Who pulse!

Actually it's entirely coincidental, we commissioned this cover way back in February but it's only materialising now when we decided to drop our Wilderness Years themed issue back in the schedule so that our summer issue could focus on Season Five.

As for the reason we've Cybermen on the cover of TTZ8... Well all will soon become clear.

Stay tuned

It's Volcano Day people! If you're supposed to have submitted something for Issue 8 get it in for today please.

Actually we've had a fabulous response to this issue and 90% of the content is already in. This weekend I'll be toiling away putting the whole thing together, trying to make it the best I can and hoping I can do justice to the zine I love. Please let me know if you think I've done a good job and maybe Leslie will let me Guest Edit another one in the future.

In the meantime to whet your appetite...

All the way from a tiny remote village in Colombia our Cover Artist has toiled away with silver paint and to reward his efforts I give you ladies and gentlemen an advance preview of the cover to TTZ8.

Until next time,

Jamie Beckwith

TTZ8 - Coming Soon

Err, yes hello.

Sorry it's been so quiet around here.

For those who don't know me, I'm Jamie and as well as being a regular contributor to the zine and working on the editing team as the Sales & Marketing Manager (Ok so the Sales part is non existent because we come out for free), I'm stepping in as Guest Editor for Issue 8 of The Terrible Zodin. Partly this was so our usual Editor could focus on her PHD, partly so she could moonlight on her Ashes to Ashes fanzine 9:06 and also because I was really dying to have a go!

TTZ8 should be out on 30th September 2010. The last few articles are coming in and the whole thing is taking shape. The theme is The Wilderness Years 1990 - 2003 and in its pages you can expect to find lots of Cybermen, a discussion on Doctor Who canon, a fond look at the New Adventures range, the fate of Adric, praise for the Timelash, the first of our new column from Susie Who called "Peter Cushing is the Doctor!", an interview with novelist Lance Parkin and lots lots more. That's not to mention our usual fun and games with the paperdolls and Back2theWhoture!

I'll post up a sneak preview of the front cover in a few days time but in the meantime why not download some of the back issues and don't forget to check us out on Facebook and Twitter.

Plans are already afoot for the next few issues, and we've an open submissions policy so if you've got something you're dying to say about any aspect of Doctor Who past, present or future drop us an email at theterriblezodinezine@yahoo.co.uk and we'll talk.

Until next time...

Cue terrifying cliffhanger music!
