Gemini Force: Black Horizon
Release Date: 2 April 288 pages | Paperback/ ebook Author: MG Harris Publisher: Orion
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.
