Kate Lethbridge-Stewart returns!

Candy Jar Books is very pleased to announce a new addition to the forthcoming ‘Lineage’ anthology. Fully approved by Reeltime Pictures, Kate Lethbridge-Stewart is set to reunite with her legendary father!

The story is called Of the Future and is written by range editor Andy Frankham-Allen.

“It’s a great to finally make this happen. Keith, Marc and I have been in discussion for a while now about bringing Kate into the LSverse, and what initially began as a cameo in another Lineage story, has evolved into something much bigger. Of the Future is just the start, and takes us right back to the moment that tore Kate and her father apart, setting up the situation we found them in, in Marc Platt’s Downtime. Marc, who created Kate for Downtime in 1995, with Mervyn Haisman’s approval, is very happy with the story I’ve put together, which is good enough for me.”

Lineage is due out in the summer, but can be pre-ordered now:

Series 5 Arrives on Kindle

Candy Jar Books is very pleased to announce the Kindle editions of series five. And in an amazing plot twist, The New Unusual is on Kindle before the print edition is sent out (which commences the week of May 7).

A Very Private Haunting by Sharon Bidwell.

Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart is not a man who likes to leave things unfinished. He is, therefore, at a loss when forced into taking leave after his recent tussle with a ‘shadow creature’, a case that has yet to be fully resolved. Anne Travers is tired of the loss burning in her heart. So when Lethbridge-Stweart is called to Glencross to help the son of an old friend, she insists on going with him. In Glencross, young Tomas Campbell has gone missing, and his friends band together to uncover the dark secret at the heart of the village. Meanwhile, Arthur Penrose has returned to his ancestral home to find a haunted residence, and a doll with a message. What connects the doll to the strange sounds that scurry around Penrose Manor, why do the adults of Glencross seem so intent on keeping their children from leaving the village, and what has all this got to do with the ‘shadow creature’? It is up to Lethbridge-Stewart and Anne to find out.

A Very Private Haunting includes a special version of The Wishing Bazaar (complete with new material).

The New Unusual by Adrian Sherlock & Andy Frankham-Allen

It’s the early 1970s, a time of change, a time of turmoil, a time of surrealism, LSD and the Age of Aquarius, a time of fads, Moon landings and wars, and the young people of the world are seeking something new – and unusual! For Anne Travers, an encounter with a so-called “dream egg” is just the beginning of a long nightmare. Her scientific curiosity aroused, Anne begins to probe the secret underground scene known as “dream-ins” where students and others meet to get involved with a new craze and, perhaps, something far more alien to human experience. And for Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, who finds himself drawn into Anne’s investigations, this probe will lead himand the Fifth Operational Corps to the wilderness of the Australian Outback, to a little opal mining town called Coober Pedy and a search for answers.

The New Unusual includes a new version of Adrian Sherlock’s The Playing Dead (extended with new material)

The Man from Yesterday by Nick Walters

Gordon’s alive? The English Channel, May 1945. Leading his squadron of Hawker Typhoons back to base from a traumatic mission in the Baltic, Wing Commander Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart goes missing – one of the unsolved mysteries of the Second World War. Cromer, 1970. Doctor Anne Travers and Lieutenant Bill Bishop are investigating a mysterious phenomenon after hearing reports of ‘pink lightning’ seen over the Norfolk coast, while strange elfin creatures are glimpsed by the locals. And in the Red Fort, his new base of operations deep below Norwich, General James Gore is making his plans. Brigadier Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart receives a phone call that will change his life. Could it be, after all this time, that his father has come back from yesterday?
