Gemini Force 1 Kickstarter Funded!

The never completed project from the late Gerry Anderson will see the light of day in the form of a book. The Kickstarter project recently succeeded in funding the project with a series of incentive packages for backers.  The project will begin with a book written by MG Harris and is being produced by Gerry's son, Jamie.  It is hoped that if the book series does well that a TV series might follow.

With Gemini Force One, Gerry planned to bring his worlds of action and adventure into the 21st century and into a new dimension - the written word. He hoped to encourage more young people to read and wanted to explore new possibilities offered by a series of novels. A literary narrative gives the reader a chance to get to know characters from the inside, not just outside and looking in as with television.

In the first adventure, BLACK HORIZON, 16-year old Ben Carrington and his mother, an Austrian Countess, join forces with secret rescue agency, Gemini Force. GF is the brainchild of charismatic billionaire Jason Truby, a software and telecoms entrepreneur who became a planetary household name by funding and even joining the first ever manned mission to an asteroid.  

High-rise thrills launch the story from the first chapter, as Truby first spots Ben and Countess Caroline in action. But somewhere in the Gulf of Mexico, trouble is brewing on an oil platform. Disaster looms...and only one agency has the speed and technology to respond. 

GF1 will explore the human face of disasters, as well as the adventure. Main characters will experience tragic loss too, not just 'non-player characters'.
