    In 1943, when the United States learns that Germany is on the verge of a deadly innovation that could tip the balance of the war, the government turns to an unlikely source for help: the nation’s top science fiction writers. Installed at a covert military lab within the Philadelphia Naval Yard are the most brilliant of these young visionaries. The unruly band is led by Robert Heinlein, the dashing and complicated master of the genre. His “Kamikaze Group,” is tasked with transforming the wonders of science fiction into science fact....

    Story

    The author clearly has a great love for the period as well as his characters, and he does the both justice. The story starts off really well but can't really keep up the intensity and I found myself a bit disappointed by the end, as the story gets silly, you can guess the ending, and the relationships never really change. It still manages to be good fun. Just go along for the ride and not so much the destination. The L. Ron Hubbard bits are especially excellent. Christopher Lane does an excellent job.

    This is an exclusive, original adventure for the 10th Doctor, read by David Tennant. Featuring additional music and effects, Doctor Who: Dead Air has never been previously published. Hot on the heels of a creature that exists through sound, the Doctor lands on a pirate radio station boat in the late 1960s. The creature has already killed some of the DJs, and the Doctor befriends the survivors. But then the lights go out, and a desperate race for survival begins.

    Story

    The story is smart and has some great twists. It feels a bit rushed to me. It also feels a bit hollow at the end, but I can't say more without spoilers. The "rules" of the creature are never defined, so it just feels a bit contrived at the end. But still very enjoyable and an absolutely excellent performance by Tennant.
