Horowitz says new Bond has a "killer" first line

Anthony Horowitz told the BBC that he opens his new James Bond novel with a "killer" first line.

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 live, Horowitz said the opening line was the "only reason" he wanted to write the novel, which is expected to be released in 2018 - but he could not reveal the book's first words. He said one of the first chapters of the book will be based on a story outline written by Ian Fleming for a TV series that was never made.

This man knows how to tease!

You can listen to the full interview at BBC Radio 5. Horowitz's "James Bond book 2" will be released by Jonathan Cape in the UK in 2018.

HAMMERHEAD collected hardcover now shipping

While the official release date is May 23, it appears the collected hardcover edition of Dynamite's HAMMERHEAD miniseries by Andy Diggle and Luca Casalanguida is now shipping from Amazon.

Bond is assigned to hunt down and eliminate Kraken, a radical anti-capitalist who has targeted Britain's newly-upgraded nuclear arsenal. But all is not as it seems. Hidden forces are plotting to rebuild the faded glory of the once-mighty British Empire, and retake by force what was consigned to history. 007 is a cog in their deadly machine - but is he an agent of change, or an agent of the status quo? Loyalties will be broken, allegiances challenged. But in an ever-changing world, there's one man you can rely on: Bond. James Bond.

Purchase the collected HAMMERHEAD at Amazon.com (U.S.) and Amazon.co.uk (UK).

The next collected edition will be Black Box. Release date is November 7, 2017. It's available for pre-order now at Amazon.com (U.S.) and Amazon.co.uk (UK).

RED NEMESIS working titles revealed

In an interview at the official Ian Fleming Publications website, author Steve Cole revealed two unused working titles for his just released final Young Bond novel, Red Nemesis:

"For the synopsis it was named On Moscow's Orders as a counterpoint to Charlie Higson's By Royal Command. Then the first draft it was called Dance With Death, which ultimately felt too generic. [...] I made a list of possible titles and Red Nemesis really seemed to sum it up, the idea how importantly dangerous the Soviet Union will figure in Bond's life. It also syllabically matched book three, Strike Lightning, just as Heads You Die matches Shoot To Kill. So that appealed to the nerd in me."


Red Nemesis is available in the UK in paperback and as a limited hardcover. The hardcover edition can also be found on the U.S. Amazon.
