Anthony Horowitz

Literary magazine programme. Anthony Horowitz talks about the qualities of Fleming's writing and what it is like to follow in the spy master's footsteps.

As he publishes Forever and A Day, a new James Bond novel which includes original material by Ian Fleming, Anthony Horowitz talks about the qualities of Fleming's writing and what it's like to follow in the spy master's footsteps.

We take a look at the life of Hernando Colon, son of Christopher Columbus who attempted to create a universal library, and discuss three very different novels which explore Romanian literary culture.

And Conn Iggulden, author of the Empire series of historical novels and The Dangerous Book for Boys, tells us about the unusual book of poetry that he'd never lend.
