SPACE:1999 YEAR ONE is the long-awaited collection of the novelizations of all the episodes of the series' first season. Originally published as six separate volumes by authors E.C. Tubb, John Rankine and Brian Ball, this omnibus contains all the episodes that appeared in those original books, but also contains a new novelization of the episode Earthbound (formerly not included in the individual novelizations). In addition, there are also new novelizations of the episodes Force of Life and End of Eternity, and a previously unpublished twenty-fifth episode, called Operation Deliverance, has been added.
All the episodes have been revised for continuity with each other and with the rest of the "Powysverse" novels and short stories, The idea, from the beginning, has been to create an interconnected, internally consistent, literary epic tale of the Alphans' odyssey.
The editing team are proud to finally publish this new edition of YEAR ONE, the definitive chronicle of Moonbase Alpha for the enjoyment of the series' fans.
This omnibus, the companion to Powys Media's earlier work, SPACE:1999 YEAR TWO by Michael Butterworth, features forewords by all three of the original novelizations' authors, a chronology, a publishing history, and a detailed note from the editors about the thoughts and methodology behind the editing process.
