Cover blurb:
"Your death certificates have already been prepared by UNIT..."

UNIT Set up to tackle human contact with the extraterrestrial and paranormal — especially when that contact proves dangerous!

THE WAREHOUSE UNIT's highly classified storage and research establishment. Here lie the dead, forgotten relics of past battles and encounters.

AUTONS Deadly plastic killing machines controlled by the alien Nestene Consciousness.

THE CONTAINMENT TEAM UNIT's way of dealing with its own mistakes. Its brief: to stop the contamination of Earth by any means necessary.


When Doctor Sally Arnold experiments on an energy unit, the Nestene Consciousness reactivates its Autons and takes over The Warehouse. UNIT calls in The Containment Team and a life and death struggle begins.

The future of the human race is at stake!

The Autons appeared in two BBCtv Doctor Who stories, Spearhead from Space (1970) and Terror of the Autons (1971). This story is set in the present day, over thirty years later...

Cover blurb:
The United Nations Intelligence Taskforce was set up to tackle human contact with the extraterrestrial and paranormal — especially when that contact proved dangerous. But when the battles were over, when the top-secret 'clean ups' had been completed, where was all the alien technology taken?

The Warehouse... UNIT's highly classified storage and research establishment. Here lie the dead, forgotten relics of past battles and encounters. But what happens when one of these relics is reactivated?

UNIT has only one way of dealing with its mistakes. The Containment Team has been summoned... and the outcome is far from certain...
