Title Of The Next JAMES BOND Novel Revealed By Writer William Boyd
The title of the next authorised sequel to Ian Fleming's James Bond novels - the first since 2011's Carte Blanche - has been revealed by writer William Boyd. Will the title and storyline (which we also have new information about) make it to the big screen? Read on for details!
It was today announced at the London Book Fair (via The Guardian) by writer William Boyd that the next James Bond novel will be entitled Solo. Originally announced back in February (with only the logline, "1969. A veteran secret agent. A single mission. A licence to kill. James Bond returns"), it goes on sale this September. This follows on from the last authorised sequel; Jeffery Deaver's Carte Blanche. "In my novel, events conspire to make Bond go off on a self-appointed mission of his own, unannounced and without any authorisation – and he's fully prepared to take the consequences of his audacity," the writer said. Solo will see the 45 year old secret agent "go solo" in the USA after a mysterious mission in Afica. As for the choice of title, Boyd added: "Titles are very important to me and as soon as I wrote down Solo on a sheet of paper I saw its potential. Not only did it fit the theme of the novel perfectly, it's also a great punchy word, instantly and internationally comprehensible, graphically alluring and, as an extra bonus, it's strangely Bondian in the sense that we might be subliminally aware of the '00' of '007' lurking just behind those juxtaposed O's of SOLO..."
