Raymond Benson’s 007 “The Union Trilogy” is rereleased!

Here’s some excellent news: Bond author Raymond Benson’s “The Union Trilogy” collection of 007 novels has been rereleased in an omnibus edition. Comprised of the titles High Time to Kill, Doubleshot, and Never Dream of Dying, this series has Bond battling a SPECTRE-like cabal of bad guys headed up by the sinister le Gerant (“the manager”).

Traveling from Brussels to Nepal to Spain to France, engaged in everything from a deadly mountain-climbing expedition to the glamorous Cannes Film Festival, that English secret agent from England encounters some of the most lethal adversaries and luscious ladies of his storied career.

Generally considered to be the finest novels of his James Bond tenure (with HTTK especially being a fan favorite), Mr. Benson’s “The Union Trilogy” delivers the real goods: authentically Flemingesque James Bond adventures with all the glamour and violence, adventure and romance, far-flung travelogue, and high living on the edge of doom that typified the saga of this singular fictional hero. As an added bonus, Benson’s short story “Blast from the Past,” which marked his debut as the new 007 chronicler, is included in this volume. Severely edited for its inclusion in Playboy magazine eleven years ago, it now can finally be enjoyed in its full “director’s cut” full version.

Published by Pegasus, “The Union Trilogy” is available starting right about NOW. So… don’t just sit there reading about it on the internets, go get it!

  1. Great news! Going back and rereading High Time to Kill might actually wash the taste of that stupid Devil my Care book out of my mouth. Ray Benson was the best James Bond writer after Flemming IMHO. Wish he was still doing them, High Time was the best!

  2. I’m a big fa of Benson’s books and of these 3 books specifically. Looking forward to the extended Blast From The Past.

  3. I’m a big fan also, especially of “High Time to Kill.” But then again, one of the bad guys in it is based on me… 🙂
