Bond actor Shane Rimmer publishes first novel


Star Wars, Doctor Who, James Bond, Superman and Batman, share two things in common; they are some of the best loved and successful TV and film franchises in the world, and Shane Rimmer has been in all of them.

Rimmer, still remembered by millions as the voice of Scott Tracy from Thunderbirds and who appeared in You Only Live Twice, Diamonds Are Forever and The Spy Who Loved Me, is pleased to announce the publication of his first novel, Long Shot.

Following on the success of his first book, a wry and refreshingly frank autobiography From Thunderbirds to Pterodactyls, (published by Signum in 2010 and recently re-issued as a paperback), Long Shot marks Shane’s first foray into fiction, although he is already an established and respected TV writer with writing credits in classics such as Captain Scarlet, Joe 90 and The Protectors.

Long Shot is a thriller set in the world of golf in the 1980’s and is the first release from Shane Rimmer Publishing.
