James Bond lives ... in Canada
And the anthology is coming out this fall
A funny thing happened in 2015. James Bond came out of copyright... in Canada. Everywhere else in the world, as far as I know, you still have to deal with the estate of Ian Fleming to clear any new Bond books or movies--but not here. So, in an incredibly gutsy move, writers Madeline Ashby and David Nickle decided to edit together and publish an anthology of brand new James Bond stories... which they have done. The anthology is coming from the ballsiest publisher on the planet, Chizine Publications, and is called License Expired: The Unauthorized James Bond. You'll be able to buy and read it in November... if you're in Canada.
This is going to be one of the most talked about anthologies of the year. --Not because it's about Bond, but because the stories are good. Great, some of them. I have one, "Mosaic," and I'll make no claims for its quality, but with authors like Charles Stross contributing, and completely new and daring takes on Bond, his exploits and foibles, this is collection is huge fun. I'm proud to be a part of it.
