Doctor Who in an Exciting Adventure With the Daleks

Doctor Who in an Exciting Adventure With the Daleks - the American Edition


He was known only as THE DOCTOR, but only he possessed the power of the Daleks.
On the planet Skaro, their space craft sets them down in a world all but destroyed by atomic war. Two races survive: the peace-loving Thals, and the hideous Daleks, their slimy bodies encased in hideous machines.
THE DOCTOR and his party must work with the Thals if they are ever to see earth or peace again.

In 1967, to tie-in with what it hoped would be a successful release of the first Peter Cushing Dalek film, American publishing company Avon Books published an edition of David Whitaker's novelization of the first Dalek serial, the text of the first page of which may be seen above.
In April of 1998, I came across a copy of this book selling at a used book-store for $3. Needless to say, I grabbed it in a flash, considering that I had seen it selling for as high as $50 at conventions. Here now you may view the front as well as the back cover. Be warned however: these .jpgs are each over 400,000 bytes...
