Nina Nannar met William Boyd, the man about to start writing the new James Bond novel.
It will be set in 1969 when Bond is 42-years-old and will be released next year; coinciding with the 60th anniversary of Ian Fleming's first Bond book, Casino Royale.
Boyd says part of the reason he is so excited about the project is the particular interest he has in Ian Fleming.
Ian Fleming's estate has signed a 10-year deal with the Random House Group to publish the James Bond backlist both in print and e-book format, the publishing company said on Friday.
Vintage Books, an imprint of Random House, acquired the rights to Fleming's 14 Bond books as well as two non-fiction titles.
