Isaac,

Thanks. I had great fun writing these two books, Operation
Thunder Child and Operation Lightning Strike:

http://www.andrewlownie.co.uk/books/pope.nick/thunder_child.shtml

http://www.andrewlownie.co.uk/books/pope.nick/lightning.shtml

To my knowledge, these are the first sci-fi books ever to have
required official government clearance.

There's interest from a couple of production companies in
turning these novels into a film or a TV series. I'll keep you
posted.


Best wishes,

Nick Pope
