For years be­fore his death, Gerry An­der­son had been toy­ing with a project that ex­plored how an op­er­a­tion like In­ter­na­tional Res­cue might have been cre­ated. Au­thor MG Har­ris took up the ba­ton, and af­ter a suc­cess­ful Kick­starter cam­paign, limited edi­tion and sub­se­quent in­ter­est from Orion, Gemini Force is now get­ting a wider re­lease.

In­tro­duced through a wannabe re­cruit, Gemini Force is ba­si­cally Thun­der­birds with res­cue craft named af­ter the zo­diac – and pure An­der­son stuff. It’s ac­tion- packed fluff pop­u­lated by broad­brush­stroke char­ac­ters, writ­ten like James Pater­son on speed ( one res­cue cov­ers four chap­ters but barely 20 pages). It’d also make a great TV se­ries. Which is prob­a­bly the point… Dave Golder Easter Eggs in the book in­clude the use of the phrase “Stand by for ac­tion” from

St­ingray’s open­ing ti­tle se­quence.
