Good news for fans of 007:

Secret writer for new Bond book

A new James Bond novel is being written – 40 years after the superspy’s last outing. The estate of the late 007 author Ian Fleming has commissioned a “well-known and highly respected” writer for the task. The writer’s identity is being kept a closely-guarded secret until publication.

The 15th Bond adventure will be published in May 2008 to mark the cententary of Fleming’s birth. Corinne Turner of Ian Fleming Publications Ltd said: “We are delighted to have secured this particular author who we have had in mind for some time now. “He is the perfect writer for this project and we are greatly looking forward to his take on James Bond, in what we are convinced will be a stunning novel.”

There hasn’t ben a new Bond novel since 1966 when Octopussy and the Living Daylights and were published after Ian Fleming passed away.

I guess the main question is if the new book will be set in the swinging sixties? James Bond and the Cold War go together like Sherlock Holmes and the Victorian era, it would be sad to get away from that.
