Young Sherlock Holmes and the case of the numerous James Bond connections

In March it was announced that Macmillan would publish a series of authorized Young Sherlock Holmes novels by Andrew Lane, with the first book due out in Spring 2010.

Turns out this series has many James Bond connections. First, it's obviously inspired by Charlie Higson's successful Young Bond series. Second, author Andrew Lane is a Bond fan and co-author of the very fine, The Bond Files. And today Amazon has revealed cover art for the first book, Young Sherlock Holmes: The Death Cloud, featuring an image of Young Sherlock created by Young Bond artist Kev Walker.

The full Walker art (along with an impressive cover prototype) can be seen in his portfolio at the Apple Agency.

Young Sherlock Holmes: The Death Cloud will be released June 4, 2010 and can be pre-ordered at Amazon.co.uk.

Interview with Fergus Fleming

Here's a treat. Not often you read an interview with a member of the Fleming family. One major revelation; Talk of the Devil -- the collection of Fleming's unpublished work availible only as part of the Queen Ann Press set -- will eventually be made available as a single volume. Also nice that he was asked about the next continuation author, even if it got a "no comment."
