UK cover for new 007 novel emerges on Amazon UK

U.K. cover image for Forever and a Day, Anthony Horwitz’s second James Bond continuation novel.

David Leigh of The James Bond Dossier website came across some news on Wednesday — the Amazon U.K. website published an image for the British edition of Anthony Horowitz’s second James Bond continuation novel.

Ian Fleming Publications on Feb. 8 announced the title of the Horowitz novel. But the announcement only had a placeholder image.

Horowitz’s new novel is a prequel to 1953’s Casino Royale, Ian Fleming’s first novel which introduced the Bond character. The release says Bond’s predecessor as 007 “floats in the waters of Marseille.”

Presumably the cover references that setting. The cover also confirms that the new Horowitz novel contains some Fleming material. Horowitz’s first Bond novel, 2015’s Trigger Mortis, included some Fleming material originally pitched as part of a 007 television series.

Forever and a Day is scheduled for a May 31 release in the U.K. The novel won’t arrive in the United States until November. Amazon’s main website still lacks an image for the U.S. edition of the novel.
