Who Goes There is the sequel to Nick's hugely popular Doctor Who memoir, Dalek I Loved You (Gollancz, 2007 & 2008).
It's a travel book with Doctor Who at its core. Nick travels England and Wales, seeking locations used in the show, both Classic (pre-relaunch) and New.
Being an odd kind of show, its locations too are odd.
This is no glamorous trip. Dungeness Nuclear Power Station, anyone? A flooded china clay pit in Cornwall? As he travels, so Nick discovers another side to our well-trodden country, which is no less evocative.
Then he goes to the pub. As in Dalek I Loved You, the travel writing is backed up by Nick's childhood reminiscences and contemporary musings.
A companion website offers photographs from the trip, a Google map of the locations and details of the nearest pub.
In this innovative way, readers are invited to follow in his footsteps.
Scariest of all, given two other books in the pipeline (both humour books, for Arcturus Publishing), Nick has just 21 days in which to write it.
Who Goes There isn't just for Who fans - it's for anyone who fancies a trip off the beaten path. And a very funny book.
