October Books 4) Deceit, by Peter Darvill-Evans

Next in the New Adventures series, reuniting the Doctor and Benny with a confident and sexy Ace, for whom a couple of years have passed, and bringing in as a guest character none other than Abslom Daak, Dalek Killer, from the old Dalek annuals, along with a fake medieval planet and a pool of disembodied brains. It's a decent novel, but is particularly interesting for the author's afterward, where he reflects on i) writing a book in a range for which you are also the editor and ii) the reception and future of the New Adventures at that point - perhaps Virgin might start doing "Missing Adventures" featuring pre-Seventh Doctors, though Darvill-Evans was not yet convinced of this. An interesting case of a statement of intent from the person who at the time (April 1993) had the main responsibility for keeping Who going.
