  1. 'Devil May Care' Large Print Paperback Coming In May '08

    With the date of Ian Fleming’s centenary slowly approaching, details and ordering info on Devil May Care, the forthcoming James Bond novel by Sebastian Faulks, are starting to pick up.

    The Young Bond Dossier reports that a large print paperback edition of the new 007 novel by Faulks is available to pre-order at amazon.com.

    To be published by Random House Large Print, the 480 page long paperback will retail for $24.95 and is due to be released alongside the regular US hardback and audiobook.

    Typically released in very limited quantites, and the majority going to libraries make large print James Bond novels sometimes very difficult to track down. Pre-ordering is strongly recommended. Past large print editions have appeared for Raymond Benson’s High Time To Kill, The World Is Not Enough, Doubleshot, Never Dream Of Dying, and Die Another Day, as well as many of the Ian Fleming novels and all of the John Gardner novels with the exception of 1989’s Licence To Kill. Recent large print releases include Live And Let Die, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service and Charlie Higson’s SilverFin.

    According to Faulks, Devil May Care is set in 1967 when “Bond is damaged, aging and in a sense it is the return of the gunfighter for one last heroic mission.”

    Devil May Care is due for release in May 2008 and will be published by Penguin in the UK and Doubleday in the US.
