I did this cover back in 2003, but never put it out on here because the blurb was just greeked type. I came across it again and this time thought I’d share.

That's brilliant! I've been dying to see something like this. Incredible work. This one is getting printed out and wrapped around one of my old paperbacks.

Fantastic.

I remember hoping that Colonel Sun would be included along with The Man With The Golden Gun and Octopussy and The Living Daylights with these Fahey covers during their US release in 2004.

Fahey? As in Jeff?


That's what I thought, I clicked expecting to see a picture of a Bond that resembles Jeff Fahey.

Regardless, it's an awesome cover.

COLONEL SUN should get a really excellent re-release one of these days. It deserves it.

I would be nice to see this for the Gardner's as well.

I'll second that! Boy, what I wouldn't give to see the John Gardner novels reissued with new covers, the artwork both in line with the Richie Fahey series but designed to evoke an eighties stylistic sensibility.

Indeed. It's odd that this, the best Bond continuation novel of them all, still remains out of print, especially when you consider all the recent Fleming centenary stuff and the Gardner and Benson reissues.

I missed this back in 2008!

That looks great! I mean really….brilliant job! :tdown:

Now, if you could do all the other continuation novels covers. Send them of to IFP and get them to bring them out ASAP before my Fleming Penguin ones get too yellow round the edges. B)

I wonder what License Renewed would have looked like etc? :tdown:
