Young Bond is a GoldenBoy in Germany has scored a nice scoop with the cover art for the German edition of Double or Die titled GoldenBoy in Germany.

This is the first time Arena, the publishers of the Young Bond series in Germany, have not used the same cover art as the UK edition. Nevertheless, this cover is pretty darn nice (I like this a little better than the UK art).

Goldenboy is due for release in March 2007. Titles used on the previous Arena Young Bond novels were Stille Wasser sind tödlich (Silent Waters Are Deadly) and Zurück kommt nur der Tod (Only Death Returns).

Charlie Higson revealed the title of his third Young Bond novel, Double or Die, at a special launch party at Waterstone's Piccadilly today. The title had been decided by fans via an online poll and was kept secret -- even from the author -- until today.

The event was attended by the UK press and many lucky readers, including twelve year old Billy Jones from Manchester, whose name appears in
Double or Die. Billy earned the opportunity to be in the third Young Bond book when he triumphed at the Young Bond Stunt Academy in January 2006.

Double or Die
will be officially released to UK bookstores tomorrow, January 4. Charlie will embark on a UK book tour starting January 23.

Watch the video below of Charlie revealing the title today at Waterstone's.
