Thunderbirds: Countdown To Action!

As mentioned here earlier in the year, FTL Publications in the USA are publishing the first in a series of new novels based on the Gerry Anderson series Thunderbirds.

Written by Joan Marie Verba and with a cover illustration by long time Anderson artist Steve Kyte, the trade paperback Thunderbirds: Countdown To Action! is due to be released in June 2008 and will retail for $15.95. This will be the first new novel set in the Thunderbirds universe since John Theydon's Lady Penelope novel The Albanian Affair published by Armada in 1967.

Under their licence with Granada Ventures, FTL will only be distributing the title to Canada and the United States Of America, however the first chapter of Countdown To Action! has been posted on the FTL website as a taster for Anderson fans the world over.

Thunderbirds: Countdown To Action! is available to buy direct from the FTL website.
