Robotech Novels

Dec 5th 2006
The Robotech Saga is finally complete in print!

Del Rey to release new Omnibus editions that collect the original novels spanning the entire Robotech television series!


Finally, what Robotech fans have long been waiting for: novelizations of the entire original television series will be available in Omnibus editions from Del Rey, an imprint of Random House. Each volume collects 3 Robotech novels that were previously sold separately and have otherwise become increasingly difficult for collectors to find.

The latest two Omnibus editions that collect the Masters and New Generation sagas of Robotech have gone to press and will be available in bookstores at the end of February:

Jack McKinney has been a psychiatric aide, rock-fusion guitarist and session man, worldwide wilderness guide, and "consultant" to the U.S. Military in Southeast Asia (although they had to draft him for that). His numerous other works of mainstream and science fiction - novels, radio and television scripts - have been written under various pseudonyms.
