35 YEARS AGO BOND CAME BACK

2016 marks the 35th Anniversary since the publication of John Gardner’s first James Bond continuation novel. Licence Renewed.

Between 1981 and 1996, John wrote fourteen James Bond novels, and the novelizations of two Bond films. The agreed brief was “to bring Mr Bond into the 1980s”. JG not only brought Bond into the 80’s, he took him well into the 90’s as well, with great success.

Here we are in 2016 and Johns’s Bond novels are still being read and discussed amongst fans of the James Bond literary canon. We would like to thank everyone who enjoys John’s work for your continued support.

Below is a link to Clip from a 1981 ATV interview of John Gardner featuring the promotional 007 Saab ‘The Silver Beast’ that has surfaced on YouTube. We are looking for more clips etc. to share.

BOYSIE OAKES THE FINAL TWO ADVENTURES FROM ENDEAVOUR PRESS AVAILABLE NOW - KINDLE READY

Air Apparent

Boysie Oakes, ex anguished agent, ex defective private eye, and greying horrifically at the temples, is facing the wilderness of middle-age supported only by the Welfare State.

At long last Boysie Oakes has reached seedy maturity - and he plans to grow old quietly without any more dangerous missions.

Until, like an evil genie, up pops his oily old boss, Mostyn, offering a life of renewed luxury.

Boysie is to become the sole British Director of Air Apparent, an airline which operates from one office, has no aircraft, yet, by juggling with officialdom and illegally chartering aeroplanes, manages to transfer its customers to their destinations at half the scheduled fares and still makes a vast profit.

But when Boysie discovers that Air Apparent is being used for more nefarious purposes, such as the shipment of arms to third world nations, he is forced to call in his old shooting partner, Charlie Griffin.

Events crowd in, culminating in a hijacking, hilarity and, naturally, hectic hedonism.

“Gardner’s at the top of his form.” Daily Mirror

“Boysie Oakes is at the top of his form in this topical thriller.” Guardian

“All very entertaining in a crazy sort of way.” Morning Star

‘Air Apparent’ is the seventh in the Boysie Oakes series of novels by John Gardner. Tightly written and packed with incredible twists, ‘Air Apparent’ is a brilliant continuation of the story of Gardner’s cowardly professional assassin.

It is perfect for fans of classic British spy fiction, including Ian Fleming, Len Deighton, and Desmond Bagley.

A Killer For A Song

Secret agent Boysie Oakes feels completely alone.

He is on the run and terrified, travelling from Paris, across France, and down to his old stamping ground, the Cote d'Azur.

But who is chasing him? And why?

Nobody escapes the past, and Boysie is no exception - events are catching up with him like hounds descending upon a screeching hare.

A nemesis comes first in the shape of his former boss in the Department - the oily James George Mostyn.

Sought out by Mostyn, Boysie finds himself back on active service and forced to sit on SEAT - Special Executive for Anti-Terrorism.

A routine conference in Paris, however, reveals the truth.

Both Mostyn and Boysie are being set up at the wrong end of a series of ruthless liquidations, and somebody has to lose.

Before he can shout for a lifebuoy, Boysie finds himself on the run - both from the French police and security organisations, who want him for murder; and from the shadows of the past, who want him dead.

TRAITORS EXIT - THE 6TH BOYSIE OAKES ADVENTURE

Is It Ever Straightforward For Boysie?

UK & US Kindle Release From Endeavour Press

Rex Upsdale is a spent, washed-out spy writer. 

His trade has worn him down to the bone, and he sits alone, rejected and punch-drunk and full of self-pity. Reality and fiction have become mixed in his mind. 

In increasing financial trouble, he is offered some semblance of security if he will take on just one journalistic assignment behind the Iron Curtain. 

All that’s required is an interview with Kit Styles, the most notorious of all defectors from West to East. 

But it’s not as straightforward as he thinks. 

He hasn’t reckoned with the eternally incompetent and feckless Boysie Oakes; his puppet master, Mostyn; a neatly curved companion, Miss Hester Havisham; exploits, escapes and escapades in a tank and a helicopter and an outrageous group calling themselves the International Travelling Circus. 

And if he is not careful, the Traitor's Exit might also be his own. 

John Gardner, whose Boysie Oakes has become required reading for spy lovers since he first appeared in ‘The Liquidator’, has written a tale that’s part satire, part farce, always zany and certainly not for those who take their spy fiction too seriously.

John Gardner served with the Fleet Air Arm and Royal Marines before embarking on a long career as a thriller writer, and in 1981, almost 20 years after Ian Fleming’s death, he was asked to revive Agent 007. Between then and 1996 Gardner wrote fourteen Bond novels and the novelisations of two Bond films. In Gardner’s novels, James Bond and his traditional Fleming allies continue their adventures in the 1980s, with all the latest technology and weaponry. Read more »
