Gemini Force One Kickstarter Campaign
By Anderson Entertainment
Awesome new science fiction from Gerry Anderson,
legendary creator of Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet, Stingray and many more
Gemini Force One (or GF1 for short) is a series of books, the concept and story of which were
originally written by Gerry Anderson MBE, who colleagues, fans and journalists have described as
the UK’s answer to Walt Disney or George Lucas.
GF1 follows the story of a secret organisation involved in rescues and averting disasters and
terrorist events – exciting stories for both the young and young at heart. The Gerry Anderson
Estate’s long term aim for GF1 is to publish the book series, and then turn it into a film or
television series, which was Gerry’s ultimate goal for GF1.
Gerry began writing GF1 in 2008, but was unable to complete the first book due to rapidly worsening
Alzheimer’s Disease, which stopped him working in 2012, before his untimely death in December 2012.
Gerry’s younger son, Jamie, has enlisted best-selling author MG Harris to complete the first book
in the way that his father would have wanted, and will be raising money to self- publish GF1 using
the crowd funding platform Kickstarter. The funding campaign will launch on Thursday 5 September at
The first GF1 book will be released to Kickstarter backers in April 2014, with a full launch in
August 2014 – to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Anderson’s iconic
Thunderbirds TV series, which entered production in August 1964.
