Cover art for the paperback edition of Charlie Higson's On His Majesty's Secret Service has been revealed, and it's FANTASTIC! (imho) IFP has also posted an interview with the designer Mark Ecob of Mecob.


It's the 4th of May, two days before the coronation of King Charles III and the world's favourite spy has his work cut out for him.

Bond is sent at the last minute to thwart an attempt to disrupt the coronation by the deadly megalomaniac Æthelstan of Wessex, who is on a mission of his own to rule the United Kingdom and rewrite history.

Can Bond thwart his plans by infiltrating Æthelstan’s private army and ending his reign of terror before it begins?

The On His Majesty's Secret Service paperback will be released on June 6, 2024, and can be pre-ordered from IFP or

Seeing a proper cover like this just makes me want MORE! More traditional Bond adventures like this. More Charlie Higson! Let him take us into the next era of The Book Bond.
