    Charlie Higson will be giving readers an exclusive sneak peek into his fifth Young Bond adventure, By Royal Command, at the Edinburgh Book Festival in August.

    The Young Bond Dossier reports that Higson will be appearing at the festival’s ‘Big Issue Event’ on Saturday, 23 August at 1:30pm (located at the RBS Main Theatre).

    In addition to this By Royal Command preview, Higson will be available once again later that day during a panel with Bond historian (and For Your Eyes Only: Ian Fleming And James Bond author) Ben MacIntyre for a ‘celebration of Bond: the myths, stories, images, icons, gadgets and Bond girls.’ This event begins at 8:30pm at the Peppers Theatre.

    Further information and the entire festival program can be found at the official website. The Edinburgh Book Festival runs from 9-25 August.

    Higson’s By Royal Command debuts on 4 September in the UK.
