Cosmic Masque Halloween Special - Contributors Required

Dear All

We are planning a Halloween Special issue of ‘Cosmic Masque’ which will feature fiction only.

So we are on the look out for writers/artists to contribute short stories and art of a spooky nature.

In terms of what we are after it is very open to your own ideas; though I am a sucker for the classic ‘Universal Monsters’ and would love to read a Doctor Who meets Slender Man tale…

A Message from Ryan Danes author of Sydney Newman biography 'The Man Who Thought Outside the Box'

I have just released Sydney Newman's biography THE MAN WHO THOUGHT OUTSIDE THE BOX, which will feature in Doctor Who Magazine 513, and is at the moment being reviewed for the Summer issue of Cosmic Masque.

I wondered if there would be any interest in the summer on a lecture on Sydney, and on the origins of the show?

Cover Artists


I wanted to take a minute to thank all of the highly talented artists who have contributed to Celestial Toyroom covers recently.

Going back to #400 we had a specially commissioned piece to celebrate the late Nicholas Courtney in the style of Andy Warhol by the superb David Burson aka Draculasaurus.

More of his work can be found at:

An online survey had been setup here: asking what you think.

The Doctor, The Widow & The Wardrobe - Your Thoughts

Well I have to say I really enjoyed this years Christmas Special, a charming family piece rather than an end of the world disaster which hit all the right notes for the time of year and finished with a touching ending.

Here is what you thought...
