Thinning out my JAMES BOND collection

As you can see by this photo of my kitchen cupboard, I have too many dang James Bond books!

Therefore, I've started to thin out my collection on eBay. I've already sold many of my foreign editions and I'm now starting to list English language books as well as games and action figures.

CLICK HERE to browse all my current auctions. I've also placed a button on the right of this blog that will always bring up the latest. I expect this will be a ongoing process, but hopefully I will be able to help fill some holes in other collections.

Thanks!

Here are a few books I currently have listed:

RED NEMESIS hardcover jacket art revealed

Today I'm excited to reveal cover art for the limited signed hardcover edition of Steve Cole's next Young Bond novel, Red Nemesis. The book will be released in the UK on May 4. The hardcover will contain extra content not available in the paperback edition. Also below is text from the hardcover jacket that gives new clues what to expect from Steve's final Young Bond adventure.

Bond fans old and new will be thrilled with Steve Cole's skillful IFPL-approved elucidation of James Bond's mysterious family history . . .

Steve Cole's final addition to the Young Bond cannon brings James to the brink of destruction in a blistering adventure that comes to a climax in the iconic heart of London. This story shows the young James coming into his own as a proto-spy, and a showdown with a high-level MI6 double-agent, that references classic Bond adventures and is full of Soviet intrigue, cements Bond's hero status on home turf.

Pre-order Red Nemesis in hardcover or paperback from Amazon.co.uk.

JAMES BOND JR. Marvel Comics

From January through December 1992 Marvel released a monthly James Bond Jr. comic book based on the animated TV series running at this same time. The comics featured the adventures of 007's nephew James Bond (why would he be a "Jr"?), Gordo Leiter ("Radical dude!") Horace Boothroyd (aka I.Q.) and Tracy Milbanks (Tracy - get it?). The group battled Jaws and other agents of S.C.U.M. (Saboteurs and Criminals United in Mayhem). The comics were well done with some fun covers, as you can see below (click to enlarge).
