Why hasn't there been any republication of Col Sun or The James Bond Dossier? We are getting republications of Gardner and Benson Bond novels, and of course, the Ian Fleming novels will be published in the Fall.

I asked, in email, if either one would be republished and I did not even receive an answer.

I think we'll see a Colonel Sun sooner than later.

I don't think it makes any sense to republish The James Bond Dossier.

I suppose THE JAMES BOND DOSSIER could see a release as e-book without much cost or effort. For a print run it's perhaps too much niché to warrant a new edition, especially as there are still plenty of used copies to be found. The target readership either has already a copy or can get one without too much trouble.

You make a good point. However, the same could be said about the entire Fleming Bond collection. I would be interested to see a copy with a foreward from his son, Martin Amis.
