REFRESHED 'YOUNG BOND' BOOKS NOW SHIPPING IN UK

Charlie Higson's five Young Bond novels with the newly refreshed cover art are now shipping from Amazon.co.uk. These new editions of SilverFin, Blood Fever, Double or Die, Hurricane Gold, and By Royal Command are published by Puffin Books. The official release date is April 5.

Released between 2005 and 2008, the Young Bond series was embraced by Bond fans young and old and are generally considered to be among the best of all the James Bond continuation novels. This is the first full cover refresh the books has received in the UK.

Read my five part THE SECRET HISTORY OF YOUNG JAMES BOND which covers the creation of the series and each of the five books, taking us right up to today's big refresh.

  1. I know you've mentioned these covers before John when Charlie Higson tweeted them, but they look great

  2. Seems odd there's not a Danger Society to match. Know of any plans for that?

    I wish they'd stock these on The Book Depository. Shipping from Amazon UK is just so much these days.

    1. They did have them on The Book Depository when they were first announced last year. What I've found with that site is some books are only available for a limited time. You have to pre-order as soon as you see them.

      Yeah, I was also sorry to see Danger Society not among these. I think that book is going to become a real rarity.
