Homage to Ian Fleming

Devil May Care by Sebastian Faulks

When you or I do it, it is called fanfiction and is something to be sniffed at and looked down upon.

When Sebastian Faulks does it, it is not fanfiction, not even pastiche, it is art, it is literature.


Hardback

The New James Bond

Commissioned to write the latest Bond novel to celebrate the centenary of Ian Fleming's birth, Sebastian Faulks delivered the goods last month with the novel, Devil May Care.

The novel was expected to do extremely well in the shops.

But has it succeeded?

Absolutely!

It's had all the success predicted of it, having been on the best-seller list ever since its launch.

CD audiobook

With the success of last year's simultaneous launch of the last Harry Potter novel in hardback and CD audiobook, other publishers are giving the same scheme a try.

But Penguin have gone one step better. They have released Devil May Care as a hardback, unabridged CD audiobook, and unabridged download on Audible.co.uk all at the same time.

Little White Horse and a Movie

The BBC is publishing a new CD audio version of the timeless children's classic Little White Horse to coincide with the upcoming release of the film version (provisionally titled The Secret of Moonacre).

A perfect gift for the kids especially if suffering from Harry Potter withdrawal symptoms.

The book is available on pre-order at Amazon.co.uk with a release date of 10 July 2008
