Anthony Horowitz claims he was originally offered the job of Young Bond author by Ian Fleming Publications, but turned it down in favour of continuing his Rider books. His most recent Alex Rider novel, Ark Angel, was published on 1 April.
Charlie Higson’s first Young Bond novel, SilverFin, has been a huge success, selling over 50,000 copies to date with arrangements in place for foreign translations in Brazil, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Holland, Italy, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Spain and Sweden.
Higson’s second yet untitled Young Bond novel is due out in January 2006. A series of Young Bond graphic novels are also being planned.
