So what kind of James Bond adventure would you like to see next from Charlie Higson? I’ve created a little poll above with all the reasonable choices I can think of, but if you have any other ideas, feel free to post them below.

I voted for Young Bond 2 because, you know, I love my Young Bond! But, honestly, I think as some point Charlie MUST write an adult Bond novel. It would be a crime against the Bond universe if he didn’t. Good news is there is a new series being launched next year (the first book by Jeffery Deaver is due out May 28, 2011). This new series (I’m calling it “XBond” for now) is being penned by multiple authors, so Charlie is an obvious choice.

Here’s the dream. Charlie does a three book YB Series 2, then does an adult Bond book. Sounds good to me. Make it so.

Well I voted ‘Young Bond Series 2 - The Fettes Years’ but I don’t think it’s going to happen. Between the announcement about the six book deal for The Enemy and his comments that YB has reached its natural conclusion, I think we can take it that Charlie Higson has moved on from Bond.

Whether or not they decide to get another author in to carry on the series remains to be seen, I suppose.

I hear ya, Gargleblaster. I’m also starting to think that the sun has set on YB, but I haven’t given up all hope…yet.

Welcome to the forum, btw. smile

That’s a possibility I hadn’t really let myself consider until now. Would have very mixed feelings about that.

So did anyone here watch Charlie’s Authors Live chat today? Any mention of Young Bond or what the future might hold?
