At least we now have a date to look forward to. :)
Have a lovely date, guys.
A brilliant brithday gift even I f I prefer to be born on the same day Star Trek first aired on televison ever.
I would be up for that !.
Let's see what launch events are planned and liaise accordingly.
For some reason, I have a strong feeling Horowitz is going to break the curse of the continuation author !
Now that is commitment to the literary James Bond. I like it!
This is worth looking into may well go myself .
This looks interesting but I think I'll keep my powder dry for a launch event.
Last time I went to SOLO event at the festival hall and the advantage of that is to buy the book and get it signed. Albeit what lay between the covers was somewhat of a disappointment!
Mrcoggins, if you do go - please get some questions in!
Also, I assume this means the title will be announced?
Yes, I remember!
Then, if I remember well the man I now know to be Mrcoggins pulled him up on it and said; "You don't drive do you?".
Which is true, he doesn't. Unfortunately we also know he can't write Bond books either!
That is my recollection but if Mrcoggins remembers differently, I'm sure he'll set me straight.
The good news is Horowitz can drive!
Ha - nice.
True but in the round, it was probably one of his smaller faux pas.
His biggest was not putting Bond into a thriller.
Still, doubtless he was handsomely paid!
Although I have high hopes for A Horowitz's novel.
I hope it doesn't become a poisoned chalice.
Fleming and the movies are worlds apart, the only successful fusion of the two are perhaps the Christopher Wood novelizations. A tough balance to find as proven by the various great authors that stumbled and never lived up to the expectations.
The adult 007 literary franchise should be one of the most valuable in the world but IFP's mismanagement of affairs has doubtless collapsed the value of the asset and after the complete debacle of the celebrity trilogy I do think that they are absolutely in the last chance saloon.
If Horowitz fails I can't see any 'A' list writer touching the franchise with a barge pole.
That said, I have a lot of faith in Anthony and I think he'll probably turn the tide. If he does, IFP would be crazy not to try and lock him into a 3 book deal.
If they are, for whatever reason, obliged to stick with the celebrity author strategy then they should open up a dialogue with the fans that post in this forum to get recommendations. The more sensible posters that haunt this hallowed cyber hall have a much better understanding of Bond than the IFP board.
Still have to read the Cole novel.
