After five months of inactivity, Ian Fleming Publications, Ltd. has updated their official website with this tantalizing message:
We know that many of you are waiting for news of our next publishing project and we’d like to thank you for your ongoing patience. We will be making an announcement shortly, so please keep watching this news page…
Are they talking about a new Bond continuation novel? A successor to Raymond Benson? Or some other Bond related project? When we know, so will you.
IFP did announce that Penguin UK will be publishing ten of the Ian Fleming titles under their Modern Classics imprint in June.
This imprint only publishes seminal modern works and we are delighted that Ian Fleming is joining this prestigious list, in the company of authors such as Evelyn Waugh and George Orwell.
The ten titles are Casino Royale, Live and Let Die, Moonraker, Diamonds are Forever, From Russia with Love, Dr No, Goldfinger, Thunderball, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service and You Only Live Twice.
