I was too a bit sceptical at the beginning, and still feel that Silverfin is the weakest of the Young Bonds, but it totally turned for me when I read Bloodfever. It is really a good read, even for adults, and in all ways a great Bond novel.
Waiting for the next article...

I have all the other articles roughed out. I'll polish them up and post as the mood hits.

No better man to write this story down than yourself, zen.
Interesting to read about some of the rejected ideas. I believe the 'dog' idea was briefly speculated on this board, good that they dropped it.
Minor correction: German publisher's name is 'Arena Verlag' - 'Verlag' means just 'publishing house'

Do you know if the Young Bond drafts/manuscripts are preserved anywhere?

Hey Zen, you think you could find out what other gems are in those Fleming notebooks?
