The new James Bond Folio Society novel is here!


Yes folks it is that time of the year again. Folio Society is releasing its sixth Ian Fleming novel (if we do not count "Live and let die" that was released as a one off back in 2007).

The book they are releasing now in no other then "Diamonds are forever" that was written in 1955 and first released in 1956 at Jonathan Cape.

Like the rest of the series the book comes in a very nice slipcase. The best part is still that Fay Dalton keeps delivering us fantastic drawings and really pushing the female sexiness to the edge like only she can. Tiffany Case has never been hotter either on film or in books.

This book contains seven drawings by Fay.

The novel costs £36,95 and can be ordered at Folio Society.

Writing to a friend, Fleming commented with typical humour that for "Diamonds are forever" he had included ‘every single method of escape and every variety of suspenseful action that I had omitted from my previous books – in fact everything except the kitchen sink, and if you can think up a good plot involving kitchen sinks, please send it along speedily’.

Earlier this year I did an interview with Fay Dalton about her involvement in the James Bond series and you can find it here

So what will the next James Bond novel be from Folio Society we might ask? My guess is as good as yours but I place my bet on "For Your eyes only". I also guess that "Live and let die" will be the last book to come out due to its 2007 release (see top).

Folio Society has informed me that they have had trouble with people stealing the paintings in their books and pirated them. Therefore I have decided to only use the same type of quality pictures as they have on their website. You can still click on each picture to see it bigger.
