A comprehensive guide to merchandise relating to the works of Gerry Anderson, including details and price guides for the books associated with Gerry Anderson productions is available in ``The Gerry Anderson Memorabilia Guide'' compiled by Dennis W. Nicholson, and published in 1994 by Cooee Concepts Pty. Ltd, P.O. Box 193, Hawksburn, Victoria 3142, Australia. Information on Gerry Anderson related books published can be obtained through the Series' Merchandise Guides published in back issues of the Gerry Anderson Fan Magazines S.I.G. and Century 21. The Fanderson newsletter FAB, dealers lists and discussions with people who supply specific books can reveal other titles.
So, onto the list itself. Firstly, I must say that I am concentrating on books published in the U.K. I include a number of foreign published books and I am happy to build up this list, but I consider it too large a task to aim to have a complete list for foreign publications. I am also excluding the many comics, puzzle books, books accompanying records and special comic format publications. There is sometimes a fine line between some of the fun or games books, magazine specials and special publications. In general I have includes books which include stories where the line is unclear.
In a list like this, authentication of the data is very important. I have added a column to show the initials of the person who has physically checked the information from the book itself. Any entry without initials means that I am relying on information published by others. My thanks to those providing entries to date - their names are on the last page of the list.

Productions Page by
The Book and Magazine Collector No. 44 article lists hard back versions of the Armada paperbacks published from 1965 to 1969. Their availability is not confirmed by Collins (who now own Armada), or any owners of such books to date, so I have excluded them. An "Angels Annual" and a second Angels Story Book listed in this same article are probably the single Angels Story Book included here.
I would like to solicit your help. If there is any error or omission please let me know. I would especially like to invite those of you owning books to verify those lines in the list which do not have a "check by" entry by writing to supply the correct information and stating that they are willing to have their initials in the check column. Please take special care to ensure you give me exact details of any year printed on the cover and separately and most importantly the © year normally inside the book. Some Gerry Anderson publications have two copyright messages something like © 1979 World Distributors © 1978 ITC. If so, please give me details of the full copyright line so I can ensure an accurate list. I have found some inconsistencies in other people's quoted publication years due to this. If roman numerals are used (such as © MCMLXXXIV) and you are not sure of the translation, write them out for me. A brief description of the cover of a book not on this list could also be helpful (e.g. background colour, wording, etc).
E-mail me a firstname.lastname@example.org or write to me c/o AIAI, University of Edinburgh, 80 South Bridge, Edinburgh EH1 1HN, UK. Happy FanderBook Collecting.
