Anthony Horowitz will write a second 007 continuation novel featuring original material by Ian Fleming for publication in the spring of 2018.
The announcement was made this morning in The Book Seller, in which quotes Horowitz as saying:
“Writing Trigger Mortis was a pleasure and I was delighted by the positive response when it was published. And I was thrilled when the Ian Fleming estate asked me to come back. How could I refuse? I can’t wait to return to the world of James Bond.”
Previously, when asked by fans on Twitter whether he would write a follow up to Trigger Mortis, the author had said he would. His take on Bond was better received by the fanbase than the previous three one-shot continuation authors.
The article also quotes Corinne Turner, MD of Ian Fleming Publications:
“We are absolutely thrilled that Anthony Horowitz is going to write a second James Bond novel with inspiration again from original Fleming material, and of course delighted that Bond will be back home at Jonathan Cape. Trigger Mortis was a superb book, full of energy, wit, twists and turns, and we can’t wait to see what Anthony comes up with next.”
