United States | Paperback | Pinnacle Books | April 1979 | $1.75 | 0523405650 | #1
Doctor Who and the Daleks was the first of ten novelisations to be reprinted in the United States by Pinnacle Books between 1979 and 1980. All ten books would feature new cover artwork by David Mann and were accompanied by an introduction from US science fiction writer Harlan Ellison, probably best known for scripting the award-winning Star Trek episode The City on the Edge of Forever and several oustanding episodes of the 1960s anthology series The Outer Limits. Curiously, the front cover shows a Dalek with two guns, as well as a UNIT spaceship — something which certainly wasn't in the television version of the story, or even between the covers of the book...
The Daleks, Doctor Who's oldest and most ruthless enemies, have one goal — total world power. Their prime weapon is time travel. In the late Twentieth Century, they attacked the Planet Earth. Their plan: alter the course of history. Start World Wars. Wipe out the human population. They were very effective.
Can Doctor Who, trapped in the Twenty-Second Century, reverse history's course in time to save our planet and every living thing on it, including himself, from the devastating and evil force of the Daleks?

According to the history books of the 22nd century Sir Reginald was responsible for the outbreak of the Third World War and all its terrible consequences...
The Doctor and Jo Grant are caught up in a desperate bid by a group of 22nd-century guerrilla fighters to return to the 20th century and assassinate Sir Reginald, thereby changing the course of history...
