1. No Proof Editon For Charlie Higson's 'Hurricane Gold'

    Charlie Higson’s Hurricane Gold

    The Young Bond Dossier has some rather disappointing news (for collectors in any event) today regarding Charlie Higson’s fourth Young James Bond novel, Hurricane Gold–there will be no proof edition.

    Uncorrected/Advance proofs are early copies of a novel sent to bookstores and media outlets meant to generate public awareness and interest. Since they are not readily made available to the general public and are published in limited quantities, they can be difficult to track down.

    The three previous Young Bond novels, SilverFin, Blood Fever and Double Or Die, were all released as uncorrected proofs in the UK.

    Hurricane Gold is set to be released on 6 September 2007 in the UK.

    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.

    The Young Bond books have to date sold over half a million copies combined. The series was launched with SilverFin in March 2005 and was followed by Blood Fever in January 2006 and Double Or Die, published in January this year.
