    Amazon.co.uk is now listing Titan Books’ next James Bond release, The Golden Ghost by Jim Lawrence and Yaroslav Horak. The book, due 21 April, 2006, is now available to pre-order from the site.

    Featuring The Golden Ghost, Fear Face and Double Jeopardy, the collection is the first to be released from Titan comprising solely of original stories. All strips will be published together for the first time ever.

    As with Titan’s previous compilations, the collection will also feature an introduction as well as additional material covering the post-Ian Fleming comic strips.

    Titan’s synopsis follows.

    The legend continues! Stand by for more adventures with the world’s greatest secret agent, as some of his most thrilling missions are collected for the first time ever! When SPECTRE contact the Secret Service, offering information about a soon-to-be-launched nuclear-powered airship called “The Golden Ghost”, Bond is sent to investigate. But is the airship really in danger, or is Madame Spectra luring 007 into a death trap? This new, never-before-collected edition also collects “Fear Face” and “Double Jeopardy”. Plus a new introduction and exclusive feature material!

    All three strips were originally published in 1970 and 1971.

    Stay tuned to CBn for more details of this exciting release.

    Meanwhile, Titan’s next collection, Colonel Sun (featuring Colonel Sun and River of Death), is due out next month (pre-order here).

    Update (28 Nov, 2005):

    Titan Books have supplied CBn with tentative cover art for The Golden Ghost, but we stress that it is not the final artwork and remains subject to change.
