Clive Anderson is joined by none other than two Bond authors this week. The first is the only author to have penned the official continuation of the James Bond novels and in the style of Ian Fleming to boot, Sebastian Falkes. With a long list of critically acclaimed novels, including ‘Birdsong’, ‘Human Traces’, ‘Engleby’, ‘Charlotte Gray’, his latest addition to the canon, ‘A Week in December’ is out now, published by Hutchinson.Sebastian Faulks
Our second 007 connection is the author of the phenomenally suucessful Young Bond books Charlie Higson. With a background as a comedy writer and performer in such successes as ‘The Fast Show’ and most recently Radio 4’s spoof phone-in ‘Down the Line’, his latest novel is a horror thriller aimed at scaring the living daylights out of his younger readers. ‘The Enemy’ is published by Puffin books.
