Welcome to Andersonic's new online home

Welcome to the new online home of Andersonic. We've had to move our online presence at short notice so this will be our base of operations for the forseeable future. It's where you will find news and details of our upcoming issues and the availability of back issues.

So what exactly is Andersonic? It's an A5 paper 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 StingrayThunderbirdsCaptain ScarletJoe 90 and The Secret Service; the live-action series UFO and Space:1999 and later stuff such as Terrahawks and New Captain Scarlet. In previous issues we have also covered the films Doppelganger and Into Infinity. We have featured interviews with, amongst others, Mike Trim, Dominic Lavery, Shaun Whittacker-Cook, Jan King, Robert Easton, Tony Harding, Brian Johnson, Mary Turner, Ken Holt, David Elioitt, Alan Perry and Mike Noble.

Andersonic is published every 6 months (very approximately) and is available to buy via this blog plus one or two other outlets, and via eBay around the time of publication. The majority of issues are still in print and available from this site. Everyone on our mailing list will receive an email informing them of these changes. If you'd like to be kept informed of the availability of current and future issues, please contact andersonicfanzine at outlook dot com and you'll be added to the mailing list.
The fanzine is run on a strictly non-profit basis.
