Yes, absolutely SAF, but then again, Amis is...well...Amis, in a league of his own. Have we had another really good writer doing a continuation novel? One of that caliber? He is a better writer than Fleming. Not of Bond, per se, but in general.

 

I´d have loved to read, say, a Umberto Eco Bond novel. He was a big Bond fan, and has some dissertations on it. He was lucky to have Connery play a major role in his The Name of the Rose. Can you imagine that, for a Bond fan? 

 

I did not know or even consider it possible that Eco was a Bond fan!

 

Major, major Bond fan.

My editor, who is actually a crime novelist himself, interviewed him a couple of years ago on the matter. He was very knowledgeable on Fleming, he says. A true fan.

Never in a million years would I want Bell near Bond. Good actor, though. Lacks the finesse, I´d say. Craig can do hooligan and suave. Bell, not so sure. He should have had more ballet classes ;)

Top notch as always, Gobi. Love that last one. Still love that title. Shatterhand!

It does seem as though momentum is now being built... as above let's hope for some swift official news!

+1

One can wish. Very unlikely, though. But hey, stranger things have happened. Let´s do what Bond fans do: Hope.
