On 28 May 1015 - what would have been the 107th Birthday of Ian Fleming, Anthony Horowitz and Orion Publishing have released the title of the new James Bond novel.
Has crime writer Ian Rankin just let the proverbial cat out of the bag about when we can expect news about the new James Bond novel written by Anthony Horowitz?
April 14-16 saw the London Book Fair take place at Olympia in West London.
Ian Fleming Publications and Orion Publishers were busy promoting the new 007 book by Anthony Horowitz.
I'm currently reading the book and a full review will follow shortly.
However I'm glad to report that the book sees to be following in the Young Bond footsteps and it contains action and adventure sure to keep you turning the pages - I've read over half the book in two days - quite an accomplishment with 2 young children in the house taking up daddy's time.
After I published my article about how Anthony Horowitz is going to be the author of the new James Bond novel in 2015 (which you can read here), I sent Anthony a link to the article on Twitter.
Imagine my surprise to get the following reply:
October got off to a cracking start for 007 fans when on 1 October Anthony Horowitz was officially named as the author of the next James Bond novel. This is great news in itself - but what makes the announcement extra exciting is that his novel will be based on unseen Ian Fleming material!
Hot on the tails of the news that James Bond is set to appear in a new book by Anthony Horowitz in 2015 comes more news from Ian Fleming Publications - a new range of James Bond comics are going to be released in 2015!
Solo the 007 adventure written by William Boyd is now available in paperback. I took these photo's to kill some time whilst on a shopping trip with the wife and kids:
Back in 2012 in the run up to the release of Skyfall a friend recommended a book to me. It was an analysis of the James Bond films written by the Grandson of Albert R Cubby Broccoli's chauffer.
Now at the time I remember thinking that this would be another forulaic analysis of 50 years of James Bond films with a bit of name dropping for good measure.
Now I'm writing this review to say that I was wrong, (and I don't admit to that very often). Not only is Catching Bullet's by Mark O'Connell an excellent book that looks at 007 movies through the unique perspective of someone who had a family member working at the heart of the EON Productions family but also examines, with a tremendous amount of humour, what it was like growing up amongst the pop culture of the 80's, whilst trying to come to terms with your sexuality and the fact that there were two James Bond's before Roger Moore.
