WITH A MIND TO KILL paperback coming April 13, 2023

The UK Amazon now has a pre-order listing for the paperback edition Anthony Horowitz's With A Mind to Kill. It shows April 13, 2023 as the release date from Vintage. No cover art. While I do like the hardcover art, I'm hoping for something different on the paperback, just for collector variety.

KIM SHERWOOD on Ian Fleming's style

In the run up to the release of Double or Nothing, HarperFiction on Twitter is sharing a series of short film clips of author Kim Sherwood talking about her journey from Bond fan to Bond author. I really like today's installment in which she recalls reading Ian Fleming's From Russia With Love for the first time.

Double or Nothing will be released in the UK on September 1, 2022 and is available for pre-order on

Kim SHERWOOD and Charlie HIGSON event, Sept. 1

Kim Sherwood will be joined by Young Bond author Charlie Higson at a special Double or Nothing launch day event on September 1st at the British Library. The event will "celebrate the ever-thrilling and evolving world of 007" and will be followed by a book signing. I like these two! (Still hoping Charlie will write an adult Bond novel some day.)

ONLY for you... 🎵

Check out this 1987 Italian paperback of Ian Fleming's For Your Eyes Only from publisher Oscar Mondadori. Great cover art.

I got this image from Peter Lorenz's wonderful Illustrated 007 - The Art of James Bond blog. Peter recently retired his blog, which is a real shame as he shared some incredible James Bond book artwork over the years. Happily, he left the blog online as an archive, so I encourage you to have a browse.

Thank you Peter for all your hard work!
