New adult series of James Bond books on the way ?

09-Mar-2005 • Literary

Speculation of a new James Bond literary series has erupted following Young Bond author Charlie Higon's comments about the plans of Ian Fleming Publications.

MI6 interviewed Charlie Higson about his first book in the new Young Bond series last month - SilverFin - and the author hinted that more Bond books may be on the way...

"Over the past few years, Ian Fleming Publications have managed to wrestle back all of the Fleming literary rights, and they are very keen to see that the rights are looked after better than they used to be, and they are properly exploited and not frittered away on cheap stuff.

I know they have various quite high profile projects in the pipeline, Young Bond being one of the first ones. "

Rumours are that IFP will be unveiling a new adult series of James Bond books, but unlike previous continuation authors John Gardner and Raymond Benson, the timeless character will be put back into his original late 1950's/early 1960's setting, rather than the modern day.
