Video: John Gardner with James Bond's "SILVER BEAST"

This year marks the 35th anniversary of John Gardner's first James Bond continuation novel, License Renewed. That book ushered in a new era of James Bond continuation novels that are still going strong today. Here is a Clip from a 1981 ATV interview with John Gardner featuring the promotional Saab 900 Turbo that toured the UK during the book's launch.

The Saab 900 aka "The Silver Beast" has always been a personal favorite Bond car. Read: BOND'S BEAST - WHEN OO7 DROVE A SAAB.

Thanks to Brian McKaig and Simon Gardner for this one.


  1. Very cool. Also, two of his manuscripts are being auctioned by Heritage Auctions this Wednesday, Sept 18th. They are hand corrected. The last two he did that way.

  2. The John Gardner James Bond novels were always my favorite continuation novels.
