Born for Adversity

Two Space: 1999 titles. Resurrection is the first book Powys published. It's pretty dire. Fanfic -- and not good fanfic at that. McIntee's Born for Adversity was lots lots better. It's the first Space: 1999 book that I'd actually recommend to someone who's not a die-hard fan of the show.
When time permits, I want to read one of those Powys Space:1999
is the one to read, of the 3 I've read so far (I read Survival
by Brian Ball last spring and can remember exactly NOTHING about it. That doesn't seem to indicate that it's exceptionally good. Or exceptionally bad, for that matter.)
There are another 3 Powys titles I haven't read yet -- the duology Omega
, by William Latham (the same guy who wrote Resurrection
) and The Forsaken
, by John Kenneth Muir, who also wrote the episode guide Exploring Space: 1999
, which I thought was... lacking, so I'm in no hurry to read any of those.
