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.
