A new collection of short stories about PROBE, the team exploring the darkest corners of the Doctor Who universe, is out next week

Arcbeatle Press have announced the stories and authors for the upcoming short story anthology P.R.O.B.E. Out of the Shadows. Set in the worlds of Doctor Who, and continuing from the BBV spin off films, readers will follow a new team of P.R.O.B.E. members as they delve into a hidden world of monsters, ghosts, and aliens.

The book contains stories by authors both old and new to the Doctor Who universe, including John Peel (War of the Daleks, The Grandfather Infestation), Steve Lyons (Conundrum, The Stealer of Dreams), and Stuart Douglas (Iris Wildthyme and the Celestial Omnibus).

“With Out of the Shadows we’re hoping to take the P.R.O.B.E. series to a new generation,” says editor James Hornby, “and to do that, we’ve gathered together both veteran writers and exciting new talent. The anthology is a great jumping on point for those new to the series, and for die hard Doctor Who fans we have some lovely treats in store. Some readers may recognise familiar monsters like the Selachians pop up in the book, in addition to a few other surprises to make our stories sparkle…”

P.R.O.B.E.: Out of the Shadows arrives on the 12th of October 2021 in both print and ebook formats and will be available to purchase on Amazon.
