Twinkie The Kid and Fruit Pie The MagicianI'm still reeling from the loss of Twinkies and Ding Dongs, the meth of bloggers. So bear with me.

Tainted Archive points us in the direction of James Bond - all of the novels (including those not written by Ian Fleming) are being put online courtesy of Ian Fleming Publications.

New Bond Novel, Devil May Care, To Debut in 2008

Bond…James Bond Devil May Care, a new James Bond novel set to come out in 2008, will celebrate Bond author Ian Fleming’s birthday. Written by British author Sebastian Faulks, the new Bond novel has been authorized by the estate of the late Mr. Fleming. The book is set during the Cold War and will move through several scenic locations, true to Bond literature. Fleming wrote Goldfinger, Dr. No, and From Russia With Love, among other Bond adventures, and passed away in 1964 (before he could see his dreams destroyed by one Mr. Pierce Brosnan – and let’s not even get into what a bad casting call that was). Kingsley Amis and John Gardner have also written Bond adventures through the years. Devil May Care will come out both to continue the Bond saga and to celebrate the 100th would-be birthday of Ian Fleming. Film rights to the movie have not yet been sold – which, thankfully, means it hasn’t been miscast either. It’s a shame there can only be one Sean Connery.
