New Bond Novel, BBC Gets it Wrong

BBC.com is reporting that there’s to be a new James Bond novel, “more than 40 years after the last in the spy series was published…Entitled Devil May Care, the book, by Sebastian Faulks, is the 15th to feature suave secret agent 007.”

Are they on crack? Bond novels have been penned since Ian Fleming’s death by Kingsley Amis, John Gardner, and (sort of) John Pearson.

Late in the story, they inconsisently mention: “His family originally asked three authors to continue the Bond tradition, including novelist Kingsley Amis, but with mixed success.” Huh? Is it the 15th novel or not? It’s not, clearly, and the BBC nededs a kick in the ass.
