‘I’d like to write more Bond books, it’s just a question of juggling time.’
That was the reply author Charlie Higson gave in a Belfast Telegraph interview when the topic of his hugely popular Young Bond series came up.
As many literary 007 fans are well aware, Higson’s fifth and final novel of his original series, By Royal Command, was published almost one year ago in the UK. Since then, there has been no concrete announcement of a follow-up novel, although Higson was quoted as saying that there would be further James Bond adventures in the future.
As the Young Bond Dossier points out, Higson has more than a fair share of current and upcoming projects, including the eagerly anticipated Young Bond guide, Danger Society: The Young Bond Dossier, which will also feature a brand new short story entitled A Hard Man to Kill (more details are available here).
Furthermore, the author will next month launch his new three book horror series with The Enemy and is also working on a new BBC2 TV series with long-time comedy partner Paul Whitehouse. The series will be adapted from their spoof phone-in Radio 4 series Down The Line.
So, thankfully, more literary Bond adventures are still forthcoming—it’s just a question of when. Be sure to keep checking the CommanderBond.net main page and our Discussion Forums for all the latest details.
