I couldn't be happier with the sheer swiftness of Mighty Ape's delivery of this book. I can't begin to tell you how badly I needed this in my life: a chance to experience the lost story of The Abominable Snowmen, in full, on my own terms, without need for any technological assistance other than a good old Dicks-penned Target book. Every single nugget of information delivered by this book feels rich and important, from the introduction by the widely acclaimed Stephen Baxter (lifelong fan!) to the conclusion of the story proper. This novelization of The Abominable Snowmen represents a high point in the history of the Doctor Who franchise, and indeed, for all known forms of human creative achievement and expression. The characters, the world, the robotic Yeti; every single element of this story comes alive and invites you in, to a world that is full of equal parts wonder and terror, but above all, hope. Hope that there will be a better tomorrow. Hope that in thirty years from now, when most of human civilization has been destroyed by severe climate change, I will be able to return to my copy of Doctor Who and the Abominable Snowmen by Terrance Dicks, and remember a simpler age. This book utterly eclipses all Doctor Who writing carried out by Steven Moffat and Chris Chibnall, period. A single sentence from this book carries more imagination, charm and talent than the last seven years' worth of writing on the actual show. So if you're ever down on your luck, pick up Doctor Who and the Abominable Snowmen. Lead a better existence, as I now do. Terrance Dicks, if you ever see this, thank you, thank you for giving me this experience that I will cherish for as long as I exist in any possible form.
