'SilverFin' U.S. Paperback Coming in April
CBn has learned that the U.S. paperback edition of SilverFin, the first Young Bond novel by Charlie Higson, is scheduled for release in April 2006.
Publisher Miramax/Hyperion released a hardcover edition of SilverFin in April of 2005.
Miramax/Hyperion bought the rights to the first two Young Bond novels last year. The Disney owned company plans on releasing Young Bond Book 2, Blood Fever, in May 2006. (Pre-order at Amazon.com)
It’s not known whether the publisher will remain in the Young Bond business for Book 3, which is due for release in the UK by Puffin Books in January 2007.
In other Young Bond news, Player One (the company behind the upcoming SilverFin mobile game) has given CBn a nice look at the new Young Bond logo. This logo first appeared on the German edition of SilverFin. It’s expected the English language books will retain the original Young Bond logo while the games, graphic novels, and some select foreign editions may use the logo below.
