  1. Pre-ordered! Love revisiting these stories and love the format of the collection.

    I’d be interested in knowing if they will produce more of these types of collection, perhaps the Space:1999 Look-In stories which could be done in one collection.

    Top marks to the Gerry Anderson Store for producing these books.
