    By Devin Zydel on 2008-04-15

    Although it isn’t officially due for release until 22 April, James Bond fans in the US can now get their hands on Charlie Higson’s Double or Die.

    A report from Double O Section notes that Higson’s third Young Bond novel is currently turning up at several bookstores throughout the US, most notably the Borders chain.

    As earlier reported on, the US hardback edition of Double or Die features brand new artwork from Kev Walker (who also designed the US Blood Fever cover and is behind the upcoming SilverFin graphic novel).

    Higson offered his own praise of the cover: ‘It’s fantastic to see the new American cover of Double or Die which has all the romance and atmosphere I imagined when writing the books. Double or Die is a new start for Young Bond in the states and I’m very excited about its release.’

    So go ahead and pre-order online or start the hunt at your local bookstore…
