Hands on SILVERFIN 2012

Thanks to the good folks at Puffin, I have in hand a copy of their beautiful new SilverFin reissue. The publisher has done a terrific job with this 2012 refresh of the Young Bond series by Charlie Higson, with all new cover art designed by the-parish.com. Each book also includes a preview of the next book in the back -- SilverFin has a 14 page Blood Fever preview -- and the spines feature the titles boldly and look great together. It's also worth noting that the books are the same size as the Fahey Penguin Fleming paperbacks and the new John Gardner reprints from Orion, so they line-up beautifully on the shelf together.


You can buy the Young Bond 2012 refresh on Amazon.co.uk. Also read my five part THE SECRET HISTORY OF YOUNG JAMES BOND, which covers the creation of the series and each of the five books individually.

  1. Ooh, I like that the size matches! Same size as the US Faheys, or the UK ones?

    1. The U.S. ones -- trade size. Publisher logos match up as well. :)

  2. They do look great, and I'm a big Young Bond fan, but unfortunately I think I'll have to save my money for the Fleming and Gardner reprints....

  3. Hey John, as I commented elsewhere on your blog the set looks excellent. And seeing the first book "for real" including the spine is great. I don't suppose you asked your contact at Puffin about Danger Society? If Puffin printed that in the same series it would be cool, and possibly inspire the US to finally print that title too!

    1. Yeah, the spine is great. I'm getting the other books from Amazon uk and when I have them I'll update this post with a pic of all the spines together.

      I didn't ask about Danger Society. Didn't really feel like I needed to as it seems obvious they are not reprinting that book right now. But maybe I'll still ask.
