K9 Megabytes – The Book by Bob Baker

Available to order from www.k9official.com

“All NEW stories featuring further adventures of the World’s favourite robot dog by his co-creator Bob Baker!”

This new storybook by Bob Baker features great new action packed stories that will appeal to fans of K9 old and new, as he encounters AXONS, MANDRELS and DRAX, paving the way for his future adventures.

This special PRE-ORDER OFFER includes Bob’s autograph and is available exclusively from www.k9official.com and is a must have for any fan!

It is hoped that copies will be printed at the latest by January 2021, depending on printing deadlines and business conditions. Pre-order is advised.

To launch the book, Bob Baker and Paul Tams will be special guests on Tuesday 24th @4pm on the TYPE40 show on “The Spacebook” YouTube Channel, discussing the new book and K9s past, present and future.

Once upon a time, far into the future, Professor Marius built a computer to keep him company and assist him on his work at the newly built deep space science facility and hospital, the Bi-Al Foundation. Unbeknown to him this computer would go on journeys well beyond imagination. K9 had arrived.

The Gift Givers

  • K9 returns to NuEarth Seven to find that an alien race has taken control of the planet’s population of Earth colonists and A.I. life forms. Teaming up with a former crook and a work droid called Boxcar, K9 must use all his ingenuity to release the grip that the invaders have over the NuSev President. But how can he do this when he has never heard of or encountered the race enslaving the planet. A race calling themselves Axons…?

The Nine Moons Race

  • K9 is refereeing the tri annual nine moons race around NuSev. Keeping the assortment of colourful and exotic races with their souped-up space craft is proving waring and when he realises that somebody is so determined to win the race that they will stop at nothing – including murder, K9 realises what the term ‘hard days night’ really means….

The Time Thief

  • K9 encounters a cheeky time and space travelling character who is a chancer, a petty thief and vaguely familiar! Drax, under the employ of the leader of one of the gangster gangs that thrive in NuSev’s more unsavoury districts has recently stolen over 10 million credits worth of diamonds and what he thinks is an ancient relic from the NuSev museum. Unknown to Drax, the relic is in fact a hatch of incredibly rare eggs belonging to the Mandrel species who are thought to be extinct. K9 has to face a gang war, apprehend the culprits and face the fact that the Mandrel eggs are beginning to hatch …

The Proclaimer

  • Witnessing an anomaly on a planet on the outer rim of NuSev’s galaxy, K9 suffers damage and lands on a world ruled by an elite force called the Status Quo. Hailed as a saviour, he is looked upon to release the down trodden cybernetic and human inhabitants from a life of poverty and oppression. K9 has a long history on television through his appearances on the BBC TV show ‘Doctor Who’ and his own TV series.

    K9 is not a favourite character of mine so I debated over this for a while but have now ordered it. I hated the new k9 series but I love books so I’ll try this. And a signed copy tipped the balance!

      Yes a shame I was looking forward to that the new design is really good like in the series they did.
      K9: Timequake was supposed to be released back in 2017 ?.

      Yes 2017 although I think it was more of a wish from them than anything that would actually happen. Wasn’t really surprised when it faded away.

      Some of the other comments on this thread are INCORRECT! If you watch the you tube show, THE SPACEBOOK which launched this book, you can hear Bob Baker and Paul Tams talk honestly and openly about ‘TimeQuake’ and learn just how difficult it is to get a series or film done in this day and age. It appears that after the funding streams changed hands a few times and then everything moved to another production partner, they said that K9 shouldn’t be a one off film, it should be an action adventure series. ‘TimeQuake’ has now been reworked as a pilot to a new series (dependent on COVID restrictions in the UK). This book, K9 Megabytes contains four stories which are PREQUELS to ‘TimeQuake’. Go look at the show, not to mention the wording on the social media!

      Uum, that is very interesting. The last I heard was they had turned towards doing a new series instead of the film? I look forward to whatever happens.

      That’s standard for all films most projects never get far. That’s why I wasn’t surprised.

      Don’t think this is an annual style book. I think its four short stories or novellas but it’s not an annual as far as I can see.

    Don’t buy many books now or comics for that matter. Really nice cover though, I think you need a standout cover like this nowadays just to intrigue the casual buyers. Some covers of novels on this site in the past have been bland and I’ve said so.

      If I wasn’t so skint this week with all the other stuff I’ve bought, would definitely buy this. Seems really good value especially with the signature.

      I’m not getting that, it doesn’t mean its unsafe, it means it not secure but as you are not entering any details on the site itself its not an issue

      You would have got the same warning here a couple of months ago just for leaving a comment
