Next Bond Novel to be Casino Royale Prequel

Casino Royale is about to get a prequel! According to a report by Alison Flood at Publishers Weekly, Anthony Horowitz (the author of Trigger Mortis, the most recent James Bond novel) used original material by Ian Fleming to pen the next adventure of the British super spy.

 

Trigger MortisForever and a Day, which is authorized by the Fleming estate, starts with the death of James Bond’s predecessor. This results in Bond’s promotion to the double-0 ranks, and the start of his legendary M.I.-6 career.

 

Jonathan Cape will publish the book, with a release date of May 31. In addition to Fleming and Horowitz, past Bond authors have included John Gardner, Kingsley Amis, Sebastian Faulks, and William Boyd.
