CHARLIE HIGSON on the return of the adult Bond

On May 28, 2008, the adult James Bond will return in the new book Devil May Care, and Young Bond author Charlie Higson has some friendly words of warning for author Sebastian Faulks.

“I think Sebastian probably doesn't know what he has let himself in for,” Charlie recently told The Guardian. “He will find himself completely immersed in the world of Bond and for ever after will be pursued as a Bond author. He will now find himself getting requests to do photo shoots wearing the odd tuxedo, and I imagine he'll say no, but after a while you sort of give in. That's the thing about James Bond. It just turns everyone into kids.”

When asked if he’s read the new book, Charlie says, “No. No. God, you know how secretive IFP are. I did know the name before the announcement, but not long before. As you know, they play their cards very close to their chest. But I am hoping I will get a kind of proof copy. I’m really excited to see what Sebastian Faulks has done with it and what he’ll come up with. I think that’s going to be a really terrific book.”
