As all other books from Powys Media, this is a must have for Space:1999 fans. This time we have a short stories collection. In general, Powys' books are all very well written and respectful of the original TV series universe. Plus, all stories are conceived to maintain continuity and references to the series and to the other books as well. Excellent work!
Powys media have been producing Space 1999 tie in novels since 2002 in that time there have been 9 new novels 2 reprints of the 1970's novels and this anthology collectong 9 short stories ranging from pre tv series year 1 "The touch of Venus" to post year 2 story" Spiders Web". All the books are excellent reads filling gaps in continuity explaing the how and why year 1 characters disappeared without televised comment in year 2 Unlike the excesive proliferation of Star Trek and Dr Who tie in novels whose quality sometimes points to the filling of a contractual obligation rather to having a good story to tell all these books are worth waiting for despite the pretty steep asking price. Now if only the production schedule would pick up the pace a little.
