The estate of Ian Fleming has periodically approached authors to write Bond novels. Kingsley Amis penned Colonel Sun under the pseudonym of Robert Markham so that any further 007 books by other writers could preserve the illusion of continuity by using the same identity. In the event, subsequent Bond novels by both John Gardner and Raymond Benson were released under the authors' own names.
