Anthony Horowitz to Write James Bond’s Origin Story

By February 9, 2018New Releases

Those of you who enjoy the adventures of the world’s most famous Spy will be pleased to learn that famed writer Anthony Horowitz is set to publish a new James Bond novel which will serve as a prequel to the first book Casino Royale, and will be an origin story for the notorious secret agent.

Horowitz will be using original material written by James Bond creator Ian Fleming to write his second Bond book which will be called Forever and a Day. The book will be published by the original Bond publisher Jonathan Cape, and is set to be released sometime in May. The novel is available for you to pre-order right now.

As MI6-HQ reports, Horowitz has said:

“I couldn’t have been happier when the Ian Fleming estate invited me back to write a second Bond. I very much enjoyed writing Forever and a Day, exploring what might have been Bond’s first mission and imaging some of the forces that might have turned him into the iconic figure the whole world knows. I hope Ian Fleming would have approved.”

A brief excerpt from the book reads:

“M laid down his pipe and stared at it tetchily. “We have no choice. We’re just going to bring forward this other chap you’ve been preparing. But you didn’t tell me his name.”

“”It’s Bond, sir,” the Chief of Staff replied. “James Bond.””

Horowitz’s first Bond book was published in 2015 and was called Trigger Mortis. It has been rumoured since then that he might write a second novel and how it is finally confirmed. Horowitz took to Twitter earlier today to confirm the news.

Author writes book to explain complex science to toddlers

By | Children's Literature, New Releases | No Comments
Many parents and teachers know of the deep and often complex questions children ask when they are trying to figure out the world around them. Lots of ‘whys’, ‘whats’, and ‘hows’ invade our daily lives, often without warning and without a ready answer.

Author KC Land, aged 24, recently wrote and self-published her debut storybook Negan The Stardust, which attempts to explain one of the first and most important questions we ask: what are we made of, and where did we come from?

Land’s story is of a brave stellar atom named Negan who wanders with her friends Carbon and Hydrogen towards Earth after her own home is destroyed in a catastrophic explosion called a supernova.

The idea first came about when the author-whose real name is Casey Keene Stakland- was dealing with intense questions from her son.

“My son started asking some big questions such as ‘Why are we real?’ and ‘How did we get here?’ at the tender age of three. I tried at first to explain simply that we are real because we can make choices and that we all came from our mothers’ tummies, but he was obviously not satisfied with these answers and continued to ask.”
