Anderson Entertainment is proud to announce the upcoming release of a new The Day After Tomorrow Novelisation by Gregory L Norris, edited by Robert Wood. The book is now available for pre-order via the Gerry Anderson Store, and will be released internationally in early October as a paperback and ebook.
The 1970s TV pilot starred Nick Tate, Brian Blessed and Joanna Dunham and has remained a nostalgic favourite among fans despite only being broadcast in 1976 and 2014. The story has been available on DVD as part of the Lost Worlds of Gerry Anderson set for some time, but this new novelisation is the first time the premise has received new attention since its original inception.
The book features a stunning cover digitally painted by Eric Chu featuring Nick Tate, Brian Blessed and Joanna Dunham as well as the beautiful Altares light ship which featured in the original pilot show.
A Lost Work Reimagined
Science-fiction writer Douglas R. Mason, an author of several Space:1999 novels, wrote a novelisation of Johnny Byrne’s script for The Day After Tomorrow, which was never released.
Mason’s publisher, Futurama Publications (now Little Brown Books), had originally intended to release additional books, since The Day After Tomorrow as the pilot episode was supposed to lead to a prospective TV series.
However, when the series was abandoned, Futurama cancelled Mason’s novelisation. Sadly, the original manuscript went missing, and no spare copies exist. Thankfully Gregory L Norris’ new novelisation is now here to fill the void.
Summary: Suspended high above a dying Earth at Space Station Delta, the light ship Altares readies to launch for mankind’s first intergalactic mission to the stars. Neighbouring Alpha Centauri is the destination for the crew of five, whose aim is to inspire hope for an overcrowded and desperate planet. But almost from the moment the launch, the crew finds itself in mortal jeopardy.
Based on the classic Gerry Anderson (Thunderbirds, Space: 1999) made-for-TV movie – The Day After Tomorrow (also known as Into Infinity)
