The Gardner James Bond continuation novels are finally available in the US in E-Book format.
As Phoebe Taylor at IFP informed me:
"We are delighted to report that 11 of John Gardner’s 16 Bond novels will be available as e-books in the USA on Amazon, Kobo and Sony. They will also be available from Apple at some point in the hopefully-not-too-distant-future.
The available books will be:
Licence Renewed For Special Services Icebreaker Role of Honour Nobody Lives for Ever No Deals, Mr. Bond Scorpius Win, Lose or Die Brokenclaw Licence To Kill Goldeneye
These are the titles that are currently available in paperback in the USA, published by Pegasus. Pegasus are set to publish the remaining 5 titles (The Man From Barbarossa, Death Is Forever, Never Send Flowers, Seafire and Cold) in paperback in 2014, and we will release our ebooks to coincide with their release."
About a week or so ago I wrote an email to Otto Penzler a dear friend and publisher of my late father. Otto and his ebook imprint mysteriouspress.com are publishing in the US The Kruger Novels. I asked Otto if he had a moment if he would like to write something about himself and John Gardner. Let me just say I am so glad I wrote that email. Thank you Otto.

MY FRIEND, JOHN GARDNER
by Otto Penzler
When I abandoned my first career as a sportswriter to become involved in the world of mystery fiction, one of the first important writers I met was John Gardner. It was one of the most fortunate moments of my life.
After last weeks announcement that the the Kruger novels were available through Bello/Panmacmillan in the UK, we are pleases to announce that The Mysterious Press is now publishing digitally The Herbie Kruger Novels.
John gardner and The Mysterious Press go back a long way with John and Otto Penzler being good friends and Mr. Penzler championing and publishing his work.
We are so pleased that the US digital Krugers are coming under the umbrella of this imprint. Also I would like to thank the associate publisher Rob Hart for his help with this update.
