Another edition of `Quantum of Solace` short stories coming in October

03-Jul-2008 • Literary

With no movie novelization planned for the 2008 James Bond film "Quantum of Solace", Penguin Classics released a "complete collection" of Ian Fleming's short stories in paperback to coincide with the centenary celebrations.

To cash in on the movie, another edition in hardback and paperback will now be published in October - just five months after the collection was released. Double dip, anyone?

As with the first paperback, the title of the collection is taken from one of the included stories...Quantum of Solace.

The short story penned by Ian Fleming has no real connection to the new film of the same name.

Penguin, who recently reissued Fleming's novels, will publish the title in hardback for £20.00 and £6.99 in the UK (the current paperback edition retails for £8.99 in the UK and $15.00 in the USA).

It will be released on 30th October 2008 in the UK, just a day before "Quantum of Solace" hits theatres.

No details on cover art have been revealed yet, but it could feature movie tie-in graphics.
