Topic: William Boyd To Write Official Novel
Booker nominated author William Boyd is taking on the mission to write a new James Bond novel.
The as-yet-untitled book will appear in 2013 the 60th anniversary of the super-spy's first literary outing, in Ian Fleming's Casino Royale.
Boyd has revealed that his story will mark a return to "classic Bond" and will be set in the 1960's.
He is the third author in recent years to be invited by the Ian Fleming estate to write an official Bond novel.
"For me the prospect appeared incredibly exciting and stimulating - a once-in-a-lifetime challenge. In fact my father introduced me to the James Bond novels in the 1960s and I read them all then - From Russia With Love being my favourite."
