August Books 11) The Crooked World, by Steve Lyons

A hilarious yet dark mixup of the Eighth Doctor, Fitz and Anji with the Hanna-Barbera cartoons of the 1970s (and a dash of Roger Rabbit). The Scooby-Doo sections are particularly good at getting under the skin of what is really going on there. It would be very easy for a story with this premise to misfire completetly, but Lyons is an effective writer who keeps it on track throughout.
