William Boyd To Pen New Bond Novel
Posted on 04/12/2012 10:58:01 AM PDT by Perdogg
William Boyd, the award-winning and bestselling author of Restless and Any Human Heart, is to write the next James Bond novel.
The novel, which is yet to be titled, will be published in the UK and Commonwealth in autumn 2013 by Jonathan Cape - Ian Fleming's original publisher and an imprint of Vintage Publishing - and simultaneously by HarperCollins Publishers in USA & Canada. Rights were sold in the English language by Jonny Geller of Curtis Brown, on behalf of Ian Fleming Publications Ltd.
William Boyd is the third author in recent years to be invited by the Ian Fleming estate to write an official Bond novel, following in the footsteps of the American thriller writer Jeffery Deaver, who wrote Carte Blanche in 2011, and Sebastian Faulks, whose Devil May Care was published to mark Ian Fleming's centenary in 2008.

Thanks Perdogg. I was shaken when I read this, and a little stirred.
