Even though Charlie Higson will be taking a little break from James Bond, the wave of Young Bond releases will continue on into 2009.
The Young Bond Dossier confirms today that Higson’s fifth novel in the series, By Royal Command, will be released in paperback in the UK on 28 May 2009.
The release date keeps in line with the paperback debut of Hurricane Gold on 28 May of this year–also the date of Ian Fleming’s birthday.
Cover artwork and pre-ordering details are forthcoming.
By Royal Command, which was released in hardback last week, finds Bond forced to go on the run, pursued by enemy agents and the British authorities.
