    This won’t come as a surprise to most CBners. In January, James Bond art expert and Titan insider “Red Grant” (webmaster of the terrific The Art of James Bond website) predicted the next Titan title would most likely be The Spy Who Loved Me.

    However, what is a surprise (and a very exciting one at that) is that this new collection will contain the first non-Fleming story, The Harpies.

    Set entirely in England, the story involves 007 battling villain Simon Nero and “The Harpies,” an all-female gang who use hang gliders and rocket packs to commit assorted crimes.

    The Spy Who Loved Me will also feature a new introduction (rumoured to be by Barbara Bach, but Titan did not confirm this), an exclusive interview with writer Jim Lawrence, and the first part of a
    feature examining the post-Fleming comics. According to, the release date is August 26, 2005.

    Now that Titan is branching out into non-Fleming material, is it possible the next book in the Titan series could be Colonel Sun?

    One can only hope.
