IFP coming out with Higson adult Bond story

Charlie Higson, author of a series of Young Bond novels, is coming out with an adult Bond tale, Ian Fleming Publications announced today.

On His Majesty’s Secret Service is scheduled to be published May 4, two days before the coronation of King Charles III.

The new tale is timeshifted to the present day. Higson’s Young Bond novels were done as period pieces.

On His Majesty’s Secret Service concerns Bond being assigned to prevent the disruption of the coronation by “the wealthy, eccentric and self-styled Athelstan of Wessex,” according to IFP’s announcement.

The story will be available as a hardback, e-book and audiobook read by Higson. Royalties from sales will support the work of the National Literacy Trust, a U.K. charity, IFP said.

Here is IFP’s post on Twitter about the new book.
