Young Bond saga continues in JAMES BOND ORIGIN

CBR.com reports that Dynamite will continue where Charlie Higson and Steve Cole left off in JAMES BOND ORIGN. News of this series first broke last year. Exciting to finally get details and cover art!

Writer Jeff Parker and artist Bob Q will revisit how the future 007 got his start in James Bond Origin, arriving in September from Dynamite Entertainment and Ian Fleming Publications Ltd. 
The new ongoing series will take readers back to March 1941, and introduce 17-year-old James Bond as a restless student in Scotland who’s eager to make his mark on the world. However, a visit by an old family friend coincides with the devastating Clydebank Blitz, forcing James to fight to survive. 
“It’s a weighty challenge to reverse-engineer this icon into a young man on a life’s journey of danger, but Nate Cosby paired me up with Bob Q, who not only brings the gravitas of war in 1941 Europe, but nails the promising hero in his youth,” Parker said in a statement. “James doesn’t have the vast experience of a double-O agent yet, but he’s tenacious and a lightning-quick study. Bob and I work to show the full force of Bond’s spirit.” 
The first issue of James Bond Origin will boast a selection of variant covers from John Cassaday, David Mack, Kev Walker, Gene Ha, Ibrahim Moustafa, and Bob Q. and Jordan Boyd.

You can see all the variant covers for Issue One at CBR.

FOREVER AND A DAY Waterstones edition contains extra Ian Fleming material

As with Trigger Mortis, the Waterstones editions of Forever and a Day by Anthony Horowitz contain original Ian Fleming material in the back of the book that does not appear in the regular trade first editions. This time the dust-jacket is the same, but the book's page edges are yellow.


The only other special this time that I'm aware of is the Goldsboro Limited, which comes signed and numbered and has blue page edges (no extra content). That edition sold out in pre-orders.

There was also a hardback proof with slightly different boards and endpapers that advertise the novel. The proof did not come in a dust-jacket.

Happy hunting!

REVIEW: 'Forever and a Day' is both great and okay

Anthony Horowitz's second Bond novel, Forever and a Day, is released today in the UK by Jonathan Cape. (The U.S. edition will wait until November 6.) This time we see Bond's first mission as a double-oh agent in what amounts to a prequel to Casino Royale. I've had the great pleasure of reading the book, and I'm happy to report that it's a another strong Bond novel from Horowitz.

But I have to be honest in saying that while I thoroughly enjoyed Forever and a Day, I preferred Horowitz's Trigger Mortis. Every beat of that first book felt original to me, while every beat of this book felt familiar. It has familiar locations (South of France), familiar situations (a casino, a party, warehouses), familiar allies (CIA agent), and a familiar villain's plot (I'll keep this review spoiler free, but this one comes right out of a movie). Also, the original Fleming material, a story about a mad Russian who threatens to shell the casino at Monte Carlo, is related as a past event. It's a great story (or scene), and I'm surprised it wasn't integrated into the plot, as Horowitz did with the race car action in Trigger Mortis. And the idea that Bond "saved the casino" a year earlier undermines the whole idea of this being 007s first mission. Bond walks into the casino and he's greeted like Roger Moore!

The action also takes an unusually long time to kick in, but this is because Horowitz takes time to develop a strong Bond Girl in Sixteen. And once the action finally does kick in (around page 200), it is a relentless rush with a spectacular extended climax aboard the villain's luxury cruise ship. Again, no spoilers, but what Bond has to endure physically -- always a highlight of any Bond book -- is something we've never seen in any Bond adventure, and it's harrowing! This chapter alone makes Forever and a Day unforgettable and a classic among continuation novels.

So apart from my quibbles, I'm thrilled to have another beautifully written James Bond novel from the pen of Anthony Horowitz. I hope we get some more.

Purchase Forever and a Day from Amazon.co.uk.

JAMES BOND art exhibition opens at Bletchley Park, May 25


Bond at Bletchley Park: Illustrations and Inspirations
This summer James Bond comes to Bletchley Park. On display in Hut 12, a temporary art exhibition celebrates Ian Fleming’s original James Bond series, as well as the most recent 007 continuation novels written by critically acclaimed author, Anthony Horowitz. 
The exhibition includes a special section presenting new research into Fleming’s connection to Bletchley Park, exploring how his work in Naval Intelligence helped to inspire the creation of the James Bond books. When Ian Fleming was assistant to the Head of Naval Intelligence during World War Two he vowed to ‘write the spy story to end all spy stories’ and went on to create Casino Royale. 
The artworks have been newly commissioned by social enterprise Eazl from a carefully selected roster of emerging and mid-career artists from the UK and beyond. Participating artists include Threadneedle Prize finalists David Storey and Tomas Tichy, the Australian painter Marc Freeman, and the prize-winning illustrator Finn Dean. The pieces are each inspired by a specific scene, theme or character from a James Bond novel. 
The exhibition is part of a wider project organised by Eazl, with the kind permission of Ian Fleming Publications. The project will culminate in a charity auction in London, in October 2018. 
The exhibition coincides with the release of the second official Bond novel by Horowitz Forever and a Day, the follow up to the critically acclaimed Trigger Mortis.

Bond at Bletchley Park: Illustrations and Inspirations
Fri, 25 May 2018 — Sun, 14 Oct 2018

Prepare to be SHAKEN

Today comes news of a unique new James Bond book, created in collaboration with IFP, along with the first look at the cover art. 


Mitchell Beazley acquires Shaken the official James Bond 
cocktail book in collaboration with The Ian Fleming Estate

‘It’s just that I’d rather die of drink than of thirst.’ 
- Thunderball, Ian Fleming

Mitchell Beazley (part of the Octopus Publishing Group) today announced the acquisition of Shaken: Drinking with James Bond & Ian Fleming, the official cocktail book. It has been created in close  collaboration with the Ian Fleming Estate and Ian Fleming Publications. Octopus Publisher Alison Starling acquired world rights all languages from Gordon Wise at Curtis Brown.

Shaken explores James Bond creator Ian Fleming's writings on the pleasures of drinking and offers 50 cocktail recipes created by the co-founders of award-winning bar Swift – Edmund Weil (who is related to Fleming), Bobby Hiddleston and Mia Johansson. Fergus Fleming has written a foreword.

From the very first 007 novel, Casino Royale, in which Bond christens The Vesper, to the immortal lines, ‘shaken and not stirred’, which first appeared in print in Diamonds Are Forever, strong, carefully crafted cocktails are an essential component of every Bond story. With ten classic drinks from the pages of the novels, plus forty brand-new recipes inspired by the people, places and plots of the original novels, Shaken offers both a dazzling selection of delicious cocktails and a glorious celebration of Fleming’s writing on a subject he was fascinated by.

Ian Fleming was born in London in 1908 and died in 1964. His first novel, Casino Royale, was published in 1953. It introduced James Bond, Agent 007, to the world and was an instant success. Fleming went on to write thirteen other Bond books, which spawned one of the most successful and well-known film franchises ever. The James Bond books have sold more than 60 million copies worldwide and have been translated into more than 20 languages. There are 26 films and counting.

In 2016 Edmund Weil and his wife Rosie Stimpson, the duo behind celebrated London speakeasies Nightjar and Oriole, teamed up with bar industry legends Bobby Hiddleston and Mia Johansson to open Bar Swift in Soho. It has achieved early renown, picking up the Time Out Best New Bar award in its first year.

Alison Starling at Octopus said of the announcement, ‘When Gordon Wise mentioned this idea at last year’s London Book Fair I jumped at the chance to acquire the book. It has been a huge privilege to work with the Ian Fleming Estate on this the first official James Bond cocktail book and bringing the award-winning team from Bar Swift into the mix has only added to the quality (and enjoyment) of the project.’

Georgia Grimond of the Fleming Estate commented, ‘Fleming was a stickler for well made and delicious things in life. Long before many others, he was writing in detail about how best to enjoy a good drink so it has been a delight to bring his writing, expertise and ingenious names to new audiences as well as those that know him and Bond well.’

Shaken will be published by Mitchell Beazley on 6th September 2018 at £15 in hardback. It can be pre-ordered from Amazon.co.uk.

The Folio Society releases GOLDFINGER

The Folio Society has revealed their next illustrated slip-cased Ian Fleming classic, Goldfinger.


Filled with characters, incidents and images iconic to the Bond series, Goldfinger reveals Fleming at the height of his powers. Opening with Bond enjoying what he believes is a simple game of cat and mouse, Fleming gradually heightens the tension until the reader, along with Bond, realises that the agent has fatally underestimated the strange, gold-obsessed millionaire. Terrorized by the implacable, cat-eating Oddjob, the agent scrambles to foil the plans of the horrifying Goldfinger, aided in part by Pussy Galore, the tough and canny leader of a team of female burglars. 
In this book Fleming reveals a more contemplative side to his secret agent – Bond is a man who thrives on danger, yet in his quieter moments is troubled by the bystanders who bear the brunt of violence. While his adventures are often gloriously fantastical and populated with grotesque villains, Fleming maintains a steely reality through the relentless efficiency of his protagonist. For fans familiar only with the films, Goldfinger’s Bond will be a welcome revelation: deadly and unflappable, he is also a character of many layers. 
Fay Dalton continues her excellent work on this Folio series, producing seven exquisite colour illustrations that ooze with the glamour and dynamism of Bond. For the special illustrated slipcase, Dalton has recreated the infamous death of Jill Masterton, enshrined in shimmering gold.
Bound in blocked cloth
Set in Miller Text
288 pages
Frontispiece and 6 colour illustrations
Pictorial slipcase
9˝ x 6¾˝

The Goldfinger Folio Edition is priced at $62.95 and is available now from the Folio Society website.

Also available are illustrated editions of Casino Royale and From Russia With Love, Dr. No and Moonraker.

New hardcover edition of COLONEL SUN released

A new hardcover edition of the first James Bond continuation novel Colonel Sun by Kingsley Amis is released today by Pegasus.

The first James Bond novel published after the death of Ian Fleming in 1964, this classic thriller follows James Bond on a mission to a small Aegean island to track down M’s kidnappers―the malign Colonel Sun Liang-tan and his ex-Nazi commander cohort, the deadly Von Richter.

Lunch, a quiet game of golf, a routine social call on M, who is convalescing in his Regency house in Berkshire―the life of secret agent James Bond has begun to fall into a pattern that threatens complacency, until the sunny afternoon when M is kidnapped and all of his house staff savagely murdered.

The action ricochets across the globe, but quickly enough lands Bond on a volcanic Greek island, where the malign Colonel Sun Liang-tan of the People's Liberation Army of China is collaborating with the ex-Nazi commander, Von Richter, in planning a world-dominating conspiracy. The stakes have never been higher, nor the dangers more complex. Bond’s allies―the beautiful, brown-haired Greek agent, Ariadne Alexandrou; along with a tough-as-nails former World War II resistance fighter―are quickly neutralized by the venomous Colonel Sun. Alone and unarmed, faces off against these two nefarious villains.

Stripped of all professional aids, James Bond faces the deadly devices of Colonel Sun and his Nazi cohort in a test that brings him to the verge of his physical abilities.

You can purchase Colonel Sun from Amazon (U.S.) and Amazon.co.uk (UK).
