  1. New Boxed Set For Penguin's Ian Fleming James Bond Collection

    Literary James Bond collectors take note. The Literary 007 website has discovered a recently released Penguin boxed set which collects all 14 UK paperback reprints of Ian Fleming’s 007 adventures which originally hit shelves in October 2006.

    This new boxed set (which can be viewed here) features the familar retro cover art design by Richie Fahey and Roseanne Serra that graced the 2002-2004 US trade paperbacks and the 2006 UK paperbacks with brand new author introductions (the latter of which is housed in this set).

    The drawback is that this new boxed set doesn’t seem to be listed at any of the usual online retailers, meaning fans not able to pick one up in UK bookstores will have to try eBay (there are currently one or two listed on there).

    As a reminder, here is the list of authors that introduce these Fleming reprints:
