Spoilers are precisely defined here. Rules vary by the story's medium. Info from television stories can't be added here until after the top or bottom of the hour, British time, closest to the end credits roll on BBC One. Therefore, fans in the Americas who are sensitive to spoilers should avoid Tardis on Sundays until they've seen the episode.



The Book of the Enemy was the fourth in Obverse Books' series of Faction Paradox anthologies. It was edited by Simon Bucher-Jones and released in January 2018. Each story was preceded by one or more Pre-narrative Briefings.

Publisher's summary[]

The Great Houses hold chains that bind time and space. They are the Namers and the Makers, of all that is. Their power is incalculable. And they are at War.

But the nature of their Enemy has always been shrouded, in mystery, in enigma, perceived through mirrored labyrinths seemingly constructed as much by the Great Houses as the Enemy. Why?

Perhaps now the secrets of the Enemy can be revealed. Or perhaps not.

Experience the ravaged memories of those who have met them in War.
