According to a report from the Young Bond Dossier, fans of Charlie Higson’s Young James Bond will be treated to a paperback edition of the fourth novel in the series, Hurricane Gold.
As CBn Forum member ‘zencat’ points out, these ‘International’/’Open Market’ paperback editions of Bond novels can be quite difficult to come by for collectors as they mark the first true appearance of the book in a paperback format.
Previously in the Young Bond series, an international trade paperback edition of SilverFin was released in April 2005 and is now very rare to come by.
Young Bond 4 – Hurricane Gold
Puffin and Ian Fleming Publications announce that Hurricane Gold is the title of the new book in Charlie Higson’s bestselling Young Bond series, to be published on 6th September 2007.
For the first time in the history of the series, Hurricane Gold will be published in hardback, priced £12.99. The eagerly awaited next instalment will be a special treat for Young Bond fans. In keeping with the theme of the title, it will have a gold cover with luxury debossed lettering and gilt-edged pages.
Hurricane Gold the fourth adventure in a planned series of five, is set in Mexico and on an island off the Mexican coast. A safe haven for criminals, the only way off the island is through the deadly Avenida de la Muerte. It is on this island that James finds himself trapped, among some of the world’s most evil criminals.
