Century 21 Books (Fanderson)

Series of paperback titles

The fan club Fanderson published two books under their Century 21 Books imprint, available exclusively to fan club members (due to licensing restrictions). In 2002 they republished the original Space 1999 novel Earthfall by E.C.Tubb. The next year they published Earthbound by E C Tubb, with new adaptions of the three episodes. One is based on the actual episode, Earthbound (using the catacombs transcript); the other two were based on early scripts, The Exiles and Face Of Eden.
