Great news for literary James Bond 007 fans! Ian Fleming’s eleventh novel, originally published in 1963, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, will be released in a new large print hardback edition from the Thorndike Press Famous Authors collection on 1 April 2006.
Typically released in very limited quantites, and the majority going to libraries make large print James Bond novels sometimes very difficult to track down. Pre-ordering is strongly recommended. Past large print editions have appeared for Raymond Benson’s High Time To Kill, The World Is Not Enough, Doubleshot, Never Dream Of Dying, and Die Another Day, as well as many of the Ian Fleming novels and all of the John Gardner novels with the exception of 1989’s Licence To Kill. Charlie Higson’s SilverFin and Ian Fleming’s Live And Let Die were the most recent large print releases.
There is currently no cover art listed for this new release, but it will most likely be something new as large print releases tend to favor different styles and covers compared to the general hardback and paperback releases. The book can be pre-ordered in the US ($29.95), but is not currently listed on amazon.co.uk.
