New book series to reveal young James Bond’s sexual awakeningApril 25th, 2008 - 1:53 pm ICT by admin
London, Apr 25 (ANI): Charlie Higson is planning to pen a new series of novels about the young James Bond and the previously uncharted territory - his sexual awakening .
The new series have not yet been announced.
“I want to have a break and do some other stuff for a while. But I’d love to come back and write some more,” BBC quoted Higson, as saying.
Higson’s first Bond novel Silverfin was a huge hit after it was published in 2005.
‘Fast Show’ star Higson was given the licence to write the Young Bond children’s books by the family of Bond creator Ian Fleming.
The fifth and final book of the sequence, By Royal Command, is due out in September.
The books - aimed at under 14s - follow the exploits of the teenage Bond, who is first encountered as a 13-year-old orphan newly arrived at Eton in the early 1930s.
“By Royal Command ends with James Bond leaving Eton an older and wiser boy,” Higson said.
“One thing I’ve been talking about possibly doing is a second sequence of books for a slightly older readership, maybe taking him up to and into World War II.
“He’s approaching the age of 15 in this latest book and I couldn’t continue writing this type of book for this age group with Bond at the age he is.”
Although Higson is putting the final touches to By Royal Command, it is clear he is unwilling to abandon his ties with the youthful Bond. (ANI)
