Higson says Young Bond came to a natural end

In an interview with Scotsman.com, author Charlie Higson says the Young Bond series came to a natural end with his fifth book, By Royal Command. And what finally finished off Young James Bond?

Sex.

Says Charlie, “I was worried young master James was getting older and that sooner or later he was going to have to get his cock out. I have to admit that as a 53-year-old man I would have felt odd writing about adolescent sex. Interestingly I think one of the reasons why so many adults read children's fiction now is its innocence. There seems to have been a reaction against those thrillers which were featuring too much explicit and nasty sex.”

Not sure whether we should read into this that Charlie has decided not to come back and pen a Young Bond Series 2, but it’s a pretty funny quote.
