Writer William Boyd will be penning a new Bond novel, which is scheduled to come out this September in the UK (published by Jonathan Cape) and early October in the US and Canada (released by HarperCollins). Boyd was shortlisted for the Booker Prize for his 1982 novel “An Ice-Cream War.”
Any other information on a title or plot details is being kept secret for now.
Taking on a Bond novel is a “fantastic, exciting challenge,” Boyd told Reuters.
