CARTE BLANCHE paperback released today in the USA

The U.S. mass market paperback edition of Carte Blanche by Jeffery Deaver is released today by Pocket Star. Cover art is similar to what was used on the U.S. hardcover. The book can be purchased for $9.99 on Amazon.com.

Amazon.co.uk also shows a Carte Blanche paperback with a release date today in the UK by Hodder and Stoughton, but I admit I'm totally confused about what's happening with the UK Carte Blanche paperback. Amazon showed a release in November (and I was told it was in stores), yet this appears to be the same book. There's also another UK paperback set for May.

No word yet on any new Bond novel, although I'm hoping that we'll see at least a Skyfall novelization in November.

  1. Cool, I'll definitely have to grab this.

  2. I am also hoping for a SKYFALL novelization in late October as we approach the film's Nov. 9 U.S. release date

    As its the 50th anniversary of the films, I'm sure there are a few coffee table type books due out. A novelization for those of us who want to read the story before we see the film would be a natural fit.

  3. Got this paperback today. It's a really weird size. It's not a trade, but it's about a half inch taller than a normal mass market paperback. Odd.

  4. I grabbed my copy this morning, can't wait to start it.

  5. The paperback edition uses the same ugly dust jacket design from the Simon & Schuster hard cover as its cover. Not surprising considering Pocket Star is an imprint of Simon & Schuster. I wish Simon & Schuster had used the dust jacket from the Hodder & Stoughton hard cover as the basis for the cover of the paper back edition here in the United States.

    Why do James Bond novel dust jackets and book covers have to be so ugly here in the United States? The only exception being the Richie Fahey covers published by Penguin in 2004.
