    The Welcome Return of a Classic!

    I have not read the John Theydon novels in many years but they were firm favourites when I was younger, and this rerelease is a great pleasure. The minor edits by Andrew Clements help even out the inconsistencies in Theydon's descriptions of the Thunderbirds hardware and procedures, a welcome adjustment, I find, as, from the earliest age, I have compensated mentally for those points. So many classic moments! The space station going silent, not once, but twice, Scott Tracy's encounter with the giant mutant goat in the radioactive wilderness of the Gobi Desert, then descending alone into the artesian lake beneath a desert fort to confront the alien presence... His evasion of Lady Penelope and Parker in a chase across the southern counties to London... Thunderbird Four penetrating the underground reservoir of the capital to intercept the Hood. Scenes as vivid now as they were half a century ago, this adventure really rings true as Thunderbirds. Theydon's smooth, compact prose keeps the story moving quickly, from space to Central Asia, to southern England, the kind of pacing and length perfectly calculated for the young reader, certainly in the 1960s. At times, from an adult perspective, one wishes the prose might be richer, the material more fully developed, but that is a reflection of one's own maturity, not the book, which is exactly what it needed to be. As a professional writer myself, I have great admiration for the control and precision of Theydon's storytelling. The new packaging, digital cover by Marcus Stamps, and hardback format are a wonderful wrapping for an old-school adventure, and Anderson Entertainment are to be commended on relaunching these evergreen novels in such fine style. I will definitely be collecting every volume, and hope the full range of Theydon outings is treated to the same refurbishment. Mike Adamson

    Brilliant reissue of a classic sixties novel

    I missed out on the original release of the John Theydon novels but was over the moon when I heard, via the podcast, that these were going to be reissued. I couldn't wait to read this and it arrived so quickly it was breathtaking. The novel is brilliant, lovely cover design, beautifully put together. Thank you Gerry Anderson Store for bringing back these classic novels

    Another brilliant product

    I read this story when I bought an old second hand copy of the original, but I love how it's been redesigned! (And I don't have to worry about the pages falling out!) Beautifully done, very classy looking book!
