UFO: S.H.A.D.O. Technical Operations Manual ready to invade fans bookshelves

The vivid and imaginative world of Gerry Anderson’s 1970 British cult sci-fi series UFO will explode to life again with the October 2022 release of the UFO: S.H.A.D.O. Technical Operations Manual.

Written by Chris Thompson and Andrew Clements, and published by Anderson Entertainment, the UFO: S.H.A.D.O. Technical Operations Manual immerses readers in the classic show, which followed the Supreme Headquarters Alien Defence Organisation as it sought to defend Earth in the face of a significantly advanced alien menace – all while maintaining absolute secrecy of its efforts and methods from the general population. UFO preceded the hit Anderson science-fiction series Space: 1999 and shares much of its design aesthetic.

Measuring 300 x 230 x 25mm the 208-page book includes 180 plus brand-new illustrations. Thompson and Clements explore S.H.A.D.O.’s history, introduce readers to the show’s inventive vehicles and equipment via illustrations and blueprints, and share an overview of everything known about the dangerous unidentified aliens, a dying race that – in 1980 — abducts humans and harvests their organs.

UFO ran for one 26-episode season, from 1970 to 1971, with the pilot directed by Gerry Anderson based on a teleplay he wrote with Sylvia Anderson and Tony Barwick.

Thompson and Clements previously collaborated on the critically-acclaimed Anderson Entertainment book, Space: 1999 – Moonbase Alpha Technical Operations Manual, published in 2021.
