Young Bond 5 update

Charlie Higson has updated The Young Bond Dossier with the latest on Young Bond 5.

The author has been writing the book in Italy for the past month and will deliver his manuscript only a week behind schedule. A major Fleming echo will be the inclusion of Hannes Oberhauser, Bond’s climbing and skiing instructor whom 007 later referred to as “something of a father to me at a time when I happened to need one.”

Also, there is a title! While it can’t be revealed just yet, Higson reports that the title is very Flemingesque, and it is not The Shadow War, Diamond Rain, Dynamite Kiss, or any of the other working titles.

Looks like fans will get a preview of the next Young Bond adventure as early as May 28. That’s the day the paperback edition of Charlie Higson’s Hurricane Gold is released, and according to newly released cover art, the book will include an exclusive extract from Young Bond 5!

While the U.S. paperback edition of SilverFin featured a Blood Fever extract, this is a first for a UK paperback.

Young Bond 5 will be released in hardcover on September 4, 2008. Charlie Higson is currently hard at work on this final Young Bond novel.
