New James Bond Continuations Novels On The Way?

The Ian Fleming website is teasing a "Project X" which will be officially revealed at midnight Eastern Time. According to the Guardian in an article that appeared and then disappeared on it's web page Project X is new James Bond continuation novels written by American author Jeffery Deaver. If that is in fact the case I am very happy for the fact we are getting new books and very sorry for Mr. Deaver. You see for now the choice seems to be a popular one just as it always is when such news is announced. However as soon as 3 paragraphs of his first book are released on the web you can bet that many a literary Bond "fan" who are now singing his praises will be the same people who waste no time digging up Ian Fleming's skeleton and beat him about the head with it.

Personally I don't know what to say about the choice. I don't know Deaver's work. I do know it's never a bad thing to have more James Bond Novels.

Interesting, no doubt but lately I have developed fascination for Jeffrey Archer books. 70 years old and a razor sharp mind, what a lethal combination you have Sir Jeffrey. Reading your books bought from gives me so much of pleasure that I almost start feeling guilty. {{{cosmic hugs sir}}}
