    The Young Bond Dossier reports that Young Bond author Charlie Higson has commented on the story that Sebastian Faulks is the new author of the centenary novel, Devil May Care.

    ‘I think Sebastian probably doesn’t know what he has let himself in for,’ Higson said to The Guardian. ‘He will find himself completely immersed in the world of Bond and for ever after will be pursued as a Bond author.’

    ‘He will now find himself getting requests to do photo shoots wearing the odd tuxedo, and I imagine he’ll say no, but after a while you sort of give in. That’s the thing about James Bond. It just turns everyone into kids.’

    Devil May Care is due for release on 28 May 2008. It will be published by Penguin Books in the UK and Doubleday in the US.
