So what exactly is Andersonic? It's an A5 fanzine which covers the films and television series of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson. Each issue contains features and articles which explore and discuss their many series, from the black and white Supercar and Fireball XL5, 60s series Stingray, Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet, Joe 90 and The Secret Service; the live-action series UFO and Space:1999 and later stuff such as Terrahawks and right up to date with New Captain Scarlet. In previous issues we have also covered the films Doppelganger and Into Infinity - as well as a look at other productions which they have influenced. We have featured interviews with, amongst others, Mike Trim, Dominic Lavery, Shaun Whittacker-Cook, Jan King, Robert Easton, Tony Harding and Mike Noble.
Andersonic is published every 6 months (very approximately) and is available to buy via this website plus one or two other outlets, and via eBay around the time of publication. All issues are still in print and available from this site. If you'd like to be kept informed of the availability of current and future issues, please send an email and you'll be added to the mailing list.
The fanzine is run on a strictly non-profit basis.
Plaything of Sutekh is a Doctor Who fanzine from the same people behind Andersonic. It's the same format as Andersonic - 40 pages, A5 in size with colour covers. Issues 1 and 2 are currently out of print but will return when Issue 3 hits the, er, streets. Abase yourself by checking out further details on the Plaything of Sutekh blog. You'll find that good.
