UK fans can now pre-order the paperback edition of the first entry in Kate Westbrook’s (in reality, Samantha Weinberg) The Moneypenny Diaries trilogy, Guardian Angel. Amazon.co.uk is currently listing a release date of 8 May, 2006.
The book, which chronicles the adventures of the famous secretary from Ian Fleming’s James Bond novels, was first published earlier this year as a hardcover edition in the UK. It is yet to find its way to American shores, however, as previously reported by CBn, the book is currently circulating various U.S. publishing houses.
International Bond fans may have already spotted the international paperback edition resting on bookstore shelves; interestingly, the paperback edition has, at least here in Australia, received very prominant display in bookstores (more so than any of the Raymond Benson novels or even Charlie Higson’s hit, SilverFin).
The yet-to-be-titled second book of The Moneypenny Diaries trilogy is tentatively due out in October 2006.
