Neil Gaiman plans to write another episode of Doctor Who

Neil Gaiman, one of our absolute favourite writers here at For Reading Addicts, has expressed his continuing desire to write more episodes of the science fiction series Doctor Who.

His last Doctor Who episode was aired in 2013; much to Gaiman’s chagrin his plans to write episode for the twelfth Doctor, Peter Capaldi, never came to fruition. Timing and other commitments (namely Good Omens) meant he had no time for Doctor Who.

The lifelong Whovian spoke to Digital Spy: “If you examine my DNA and you go in deep enough, with a good enough microscope, you’re gonna see a TARDIS, with a little light blinking on the top!”

8 books by left-handed authors to celebrate ‘International Left Handers Day’

Left handers have been mocked and demonised throughout the years, especially from religious people who believe the left hand to be ‘unclean’, or accusing left handers to be ‘consorting with the devil’.

As absurd as those claims may seem now, some of the negativity towards left-handed folk remains to this day. Left handers were still battling in the 20th century against people like American psychoanalyst Abram Blau, who accused all left-handers of being perverts. Even seemingly well-meaning teachers still insist on their student switching hands when they start to learn to write.

If only left handers were just left to be lefties! Some of our favourite writers were left-handed, and it is said that lefties tend to be more creative and arty than right handers.

Here’s a list of 8 of our favourite lefty writers.
