Great news.  I'll have to add these to the list of books I need to get from Amazon.  Was also pleased to see after perusing your site that they just recently made the Gardner novels available as eBooks as well.

What I'd like to see are reprints of the original HCs with the Bill Botten dustjackets.

That's amazing. The Wood novelisations are an example of one of those wonderful little obscurities that one would assume would get wrapped up in legal entanglements to the point where they're quietly forgotten about by anyone in a position to publish them. Very glad they've been officially digitised into immortality. 

 

'James Bond, the Spy who Loved Me' especially, is a spectacular celebration of the literary version of the character.

I ordered these from Amazon the moment they became available. The first one always brings back a flood of memories since I first read it around 1980. Every year my village in northern England had a village fete and I was lucky enough to discover a pile of second-hand 007 books, mostly Pan paperbacks and this novel was among them.
