CBn reported yesterday that Penguin Books had big plans for James Bond in 2008 as part of the celebration of Ian Fleming’s centenary and the new novel, Devil May Care, by Sebastian Faulks.
Their new website, www.penguin007.com, is now up and running. Literary 007 fans can register for email updates while a clock counts down to 28 May 2008 (Fleming’s centenary and the release date of the novel).
As earlier reported, Penguin, the UK publisher of all 14 of Fleming’s Bond novels, the Charlie Higson Young Bond series, as well as Fleming’s children’s classic Chitty Chitty Bang Bang will be creating a special James Bond imprint, Penguin 007–within which Devil May Care will be published.
The original press release from July 2006 when Ian Fleming Publications had secured Faulks as the author noted that ‘2008 will be dedicated to a broad range of events and publications designed to celebrate the life of this literary legend and to examine [Fleming’s] legacy. The programme includes a major exhibition featuring never-before-seen material. Further events will reflect Fleming’s passions and experiences in the worlds of art, literature, journalism, sport, motoring and travel.’
