Shane Rimmer, the voice of Thunderbird 1 pilot Scott Tracy, will launch his autobiography at Fanderson's TV21 convention this October, and attendees can benefit from a very special discount on the day.

From Thunderbirds to Pterodactyls covers Shane's career as an actor, voice artist and writer for Gerry Anderson's classic productions, as well as his appearances in many other iconic shows and films from Doctor Who to Coronation Street, and Star Wars to James Bond.

The book's RRP is £17.99, but TV21 attendees will be able purchase copies for an incredible £12 on Saturday 23rd. This a one day only special offer that undercuts even the discounted price on Amazon and will be the first time the book will be on sale, anywhere - a true world exclusive. Copies will go on sale in the convention Dealers' Room, and the man himself will be on hand to sign copies. Only cash or cheques can be accepted for payment.

Featuring a foreword from Gerry Anderson, this is a wry and refreshingly frank autobiography in Shane's own inimitable style, and will shed new light on some of the best-loved films and television series ever made.

From Thunderbirds to Pterodactyls is published by Signum Books and features a foreword by Gerry Anderson.

David Graham, the voice artist who brought life to Parker, Brains and countless other characters from the world of Gerry Anderson has agreed to attend Fanderson's TV21 convention.

The event, to be staged in Bristol over the weekend of October 22nd - 24th, already has good guest representation from the Supermarionation series, and Graham will once again have the chance to meet up with fellow Thunderbirds voice artists Shane Rimmer and Matt Zimmerman. The trio are always a fan's favourite at conventions, not least of all because of their willingness to slip back into character as certain times!

Graham worked as a RAF radar mechanic during the Second World War before moving to New York to train as an actor. This background helped his development as a talented and versatile 'transatlantic' voice artist, and he went on to voice numerous American and English parts in every Gerry Anderson show from Four Feather Falls through to Thunderbirds. He also appeared in a host of other classic British series during the sixties and seventies , notably Danger Man, The Saint, Callan, The Tomorrow People and Doctor Who. In 1995 he was reunited with Gerry Anderson when he was cast in the role of Dr Long in Space Precinct, and continues to be active in show business.
