Anderson family to complete sci-fi work

THUNDERBIRDS creator Gerry Anderson is to release a new science fiction series 18 months after his death.

THUNDERBIRDS creator Gerry Anderson is to release a new science fiction series 18 months after his death.

He started writing Gemini Force One in 2008 but was unable to finish the first book due to Alzheimer’s disease, which brought about his death in December.

Anderson, who lived in Nuffield, had written about a secret organisation involved in rescues and averting disasters and terrorist events.

His younger son Jamie enlisted bestselling author M G Harris to complete the book in the way that his father would have wanted.

The long-term aim of the Gerry Anderson estate for GF1 is to publish a series of books and to turn that into a film or television series, which was the creator’s aim.

The first book will be released next August to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the Thunderbirds TV series.
