Author's Notes

This "Battlestar Galactica"/"Doctor Who" crossover saga, "Galacticamania," was cowritten throughout the 1980s by R. S. Hadley and B.J. Rosen, print-fanzine-published by J. R. Janoski's Colonial Enterprises in 1988, and greatly rewritten by RSH several times over... Yes, this is so old that the fanzine version was done on that mythical object called a typewriter!

Summary

General warnings: deeply insane space opera with a sense of humor (BG with DW attitude, plus some Douglas Adams), gratuitous usage of psychic powers, purple-prose demonic darkness, incidents of torture (mostly telepathic), original characters above and beyond the call of duty, gratuitous MarySue-ism (including women who work like The Doctor in DW), feminism, freestyle chaos, alien spirituality, character death, Time Lord-style regeneration, decidedly non-canon future timeline...something to offend everyone, but any sex is implied. Alternating humor/darkness may cause whiplash.
