Star Tales, ed. Steve Cole

Second paragraph of third story ("Einstein and the Doctor", by Jo Cotterill):

‘I can't believe we're going to meet Einstein,’ Graham said, his eyes alight. ‘What a legend.’

A collection of six stories by different authors, each bringing the Thirteenth Doctor and her friends, and sometimes earlier incarnations too, into contact with historical celebrities Jenny T. Colgan does Amelia Earhart, Paul Magrs does Elvis, Jo Cotterill does Einstein, Steve Cole as well as editing the book does Houdini, Trevor Baxendale does Pythagoras and Mike Tucker does Audrey Hepburn, in most cases fighting off alien menaces and time paradoxes. The first two are actually rather poignant as Amelia and Elvis come close to avoiding their early deaths, but Destiny Must Prevail. This is not Great Literature, but it kept me entertained. You can get it here.
