While it was only announced a few days ago that the title of the third Young Bond adventure by Charlie Higson would be up to the fans, proofs for the new novel are already appearing online.
As was the case for SilverFin and Blood Fever previously, rare advanced proof editions of Higson’s newest Young Bond novel (to be titled Double Or Die, N.E.M.E.S.I.S or The Deadlock Cipher) are currently up for bidding here on eBay.
Uncorrected proofs/Advanced reading copies are sent out in advance of a book’s retail release and are almost always more difficult to obtain and more valuable. They sometimes contain differences in plot when compared to the final release. In the case of the US SilverFin proof, a completely different cover was featured, making it all the more coveted by collectors.

Once the code is cracked, he has just 48 hours to save the professor from the dark forces that threaten to destroy them both. And if the professor can’t escape, it’s not only his future under threat. It’s the rest of the world’s…
