Most older Doctor Who novels are unfortunately out of print, which means you won't be able to get hold of new copies from the local bookstore. But thanks to the awesome power of the internet, and with the aid of a fair bit of cash, it should be possible to acquire any of them.

The easiest way to read a few of the books from the New Adventures and the Missing Adventures is the free ebooks available on the BBC website. These include some of the best novels in the ranges, but I'm not sure "Human Nature", "Lungbarrow", or "the Dying Days" are ideal places to start reading, since they feature companions and concepts introduced earlier in the New Adventures.

The pseudo Missing Adventure "Who Killed Kennedy" has been re-published as an ebook by the NZDWFC, and can be read here.

For the rest of the books, or paper copies of the ones mentioned above, ebay is your best bet. Pretty much everything is available second hand; if nobody is selling a copy right now, there'll probably be one along in a few days. A few books tend to go for rather high prices, but many can be acquired for cover price or less.

Who One has arranged private reprints of some of the BBC EDAs, so have new copies of some titles that are hard to find elsewhere.

Spinoff books are available from Big Finish, Telos, Mad Norwegian, Random Static, and Obverse Books.

If anyone has any tips on where to find out-of-print titles, post a comment!

Here's Jim Mortimore's extremely creepy Campaign. A few months ago I saw the final episode of Stargate SG1 and was quite disturbed that it uses the same essential plot starting point. I had flashbacks, I tells ya.

Used copies of a lot of these books are floating around the zshops on amazon.com, actually. I don't use e-bay myself, personally, due to having had way too many negative experiences with sellers there, so it's one alternative (well I've had bad experiences with the zshops too but it's a hell of a lot easier to get a refund out of amazon if some shady seller doesn't want to play fair than it is dealing with ebay).

The tv novelizations can occasionally be found floating around used book stores, though the others are a lot more difficult to find stateside. I can't say anything about the availability of this stuff in the UK though I'd assume they're more common.
