Hi there,

I understand that all 14 Bond novels from Ian Fleming and Sebastian Faulks's Devil May Care have already been released as e-books (i.e. Kindle or e-reader format).

I also understand that Jeffery Deaver's Carte Blanche will be released in Kindle e-book format in USA. Are there any plans for a UK release as e-book too?

Are there any plans whatsoever to release John Gardner's Bond novels as e-books? If they are going to re-print ALL of his Bond novels, why not releasing them as e-books too?

What about Kingsley Amis's novel as an e-book?

What about Christopher Wood's Bond novelisations as e-books?

What about Raymond Benson's novels?

Has anyone raised this issue with The Ian Fleming Foundation or whoever holds the rights to the Bond novels?

Has a petition been submitted to anyone? Just wondering, as we could organise and push for ALL bond novels to be released as e-books!

I'm sure somebody has thought about this in the past, so my apologies in advance for the duplication of work!

Thanks in advance!

So far we know the first five Gardner books are going to be released as eBooks. Also all the Young Bond books have been released, as has Devil May Care.

I'm sure they'll get around to the other books eventually.
