US publisher Hyperion releases SilverFin prologue online

22-Mar-2005 • Young Bond

US publisher of the Young Bond series, Hyperion, have released the SilverFin prologue online.

"Before he'd died, his father had described Loch Silverfin to him many times. He'd often come up here as a lad to fish, and it was his stories that had inspired the boy. His father had loved fishing, but he had been wounded by a shell blast in the Great War of 1914 and the pieces of shrapnel buried in his flesh had slowly ruined his health, so that by the end he could barely walk, let alone hold a fishing rod.

The boy was excited. He was the man of the house now, and he pictured the look on his mother's face when he brought home a fine fresh trout, but there was more to it than that. Fishing is a challenge -- and this was the biggest challenge of all."
