Another great new Space:1999 book? Really?

Hot on the heels of To Everything That Might Have Been and Space:1999 The Vault, Powys Media’s Earthfall is proving it’s a bumper time for Space:1999 books!

A hellbroth born of the Earth’s atomic waste and the Universe’s own fury propels the men and women of Moonbase Alpha into a dimension where the familiar is torn away and the unimaginable awaits. Newly-assigned Commander John Koenig must lead the orphaned colony as they seek to adapt and survive with little hope of ever finding a new home.

Originally published in 1977, then reprinted by Fanderson in 2002, Powys Media is adding E.C. Tubb’s re-imagining of the cataclysmic event of September 13, 1999 and its consequences to their extensive Space:1999 range of books.

Here, the Moon and its inhabitants not only leave Earth’s orbit, but time and space are shifted towards the fantastic. In the new dimension where they find themselves, a single flinch can cost a man his life, lunar caverns hold a secret as mysterious as the pyramids of ancient Egypt, and the Alphans must face the reality that the greatest threat to their continued existence may come from within.

And looming above, a great black void pulls them and a new generation of Alphans into the maw of what may be their very destruction.

Powys Media’s Earthfall can be ordered here.
