The reprint of Alien Seed is a welcome addition to any Space:
1999 fan's collection. The fact that it's a US reprint
is perhaps a little disappointing - I can't help feeling that
sometimes other nations care more about British TV than us
Brits. But the fact that this book is with us at all is a
good thing, especially as the standard of the printing, paper
and repro are all very high. And the map of Alpha and Eagle
details are a nice touch too.
what of the book itself? The good news is that it's as good
as the best TV tie-in novels - a fine, fast-paced read that
captures the feel of the show while also working in its own
right as a work of written fiction.
the vital Space: 1999 elements are at hand: a rogue
asteroid, a space plague and a strange and deadly female alien
- all wrapped up in a very neat 200-page volume. Let's hope
it sells well - if so, we may get a reprint of Tubb's second
original Space: 1999 novel, Rogue Planet and
maybe even the author's attempt at winding up the show, Earthfall.
and order this book on line. You won't be disappointed. A
word of warning though, as this book is not available in the
UK you will have to order it from the USA.
