A new book in the Lethbridge-Stewart series, The Schizoid Earth, is to be released in June, and can be pre-odered from publishers Candy Jar Books. The cover art has been revealed and some details about the story.
The Schizoid Earth is written by David A McIntee, and talking about the series the author says:
To be honest it [the series] is something I'm amazed hasn't been done before – it’s just such a natural and obvious thing. The form it's taking is also cool because it has the flexibility to move between styles and genres – thriller, SF, horror, etc – while maintaining a definite identity. As for the Brig himself, he's one of those characters where the casting was so perfect that it just made the character so memorable, and who [usually] feels so right.Candy Jar Books have also released the following glimpse of the story:
Lethbridge-Stewart was supposed to be in the mountains of the east. Things didn't quite go according to plan. On the eve of war, something appeared in the sky; a presence that blotted out the moon. Now it has returned, and no battle plan can survive first contact with this enemy. Plagued by nightmares of being trapped in a past that never happened, Lethbridge-Stewart must unravel the mystery of a man ten years out of his time; a man who cannot possibly still exist.The cover art for The Schizoid Earth is by Nathan Hudson and the book will also feature a special foreword by Amanda Haisman, the daughter of Mervyn Haisman, original creator of the character Lethbridge-Stewart (The Brigadier).
Why do the ghosts of fallen soldiers still fight long-forgotten battles against living men? What is the secret of the rural English town of Deepdene? Lethbridge-Stewart has good reason to doubt his own sanity, but is he suffering illness or injury, or is something more sinister going on?
