Big news today for Young Bond fans. According to a report from the Young Bond Dossier, the title of Charlie Higson’s next novel has been revealed on amazon: Hurricane Gold.
Both the Canadian and Japanese amazon websites list the novel as a 400-page long hardback. In addition, a special Hurricane Gold limited collector’s edition hardback (for £16.99) is listed at WH Smith with a release date of 6 September 2007. Time will tell whether this collectors edition will be in line with the previous SilverFin and Blood Fever limited edition copies or something completely new. The regular hardback is listed at a price of £9.99.
Something else to keep in mind is that the Hurricane Gold has not yet been confirmed by Ian Fleming Publications (IFP). As ‘zencat’ of the Young Bond Dossier points out, Raymond Benson’s third continuation novel, High Time To Kill, first appeared on amazon under its working title A Better Way To Die.
The official news release regarding the novel from the beginning of the month: ‘A treacherous road trip in Mexico…. The deadliest challenge yet! Young Bond 4 will be published in the UK in hardback in September 2007. Further exciting news to be released soon.’
