Author Mark Edlitz, whose previous books on James Bond include 'The Many Lives of James Bond' and 'The Lost Adventures of James Bond,' will release a new tome later this month.
'James Bond - After Fleming' is the first book devoted exclusively to the post-Fleming Bonds. From the first continuation novel 'Colonel Sun' right up to today, covering over 50 years of Bond in print and every author, this is essential reading for fans of the literary character. Here is the first look at the stunning cover art by Sean Longmore:
Ian Fleming's James Bond novels are among the most iconic and popular ever written. Despite their cultural importance, they represent just a fraction of the Bond novels. Since Fleming’s death, his estate has authorized the publication of numerous Bond continuation novels and spin-off works.
In the novels that follow Fleming’s, Bond battles SPECTRE, confronts Ernst Stavro Blofeld's daughter, hunts a serial killer, rescues Miss Moneypenny from kidnappers, investigates the mystery of who murdered his son, romances Pussy Galore, and visits Euro Disney.
The book takes the reader through a tour of 27 Bond novels, 1 biography, 1 novella, 9 books about a teenaged Bond, 3 novels about Miss Moneypenny, 1 concerning Bond’s nephew, 1 book about the other agents in the Double O division, 7 movie novelizations, and 8 short stories (5 about the adult Bond, 1 about the teen Bond, and 2 about Moneypenny).
