There are a few new editions of Ian Fleming books on the horizon. In addition to the upcoming UK and US printings of Fleming's non-fiction works Thrilling Cities and The Diamond Smugglers, we'll also see an illustrated Kindle and print release Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Fleming wrote this classic children's adventure for his son Caspar in 1961. The author passed away on his son's birthday in 1964, shortly before the book was published. In the 007 world, Amazon lists a new edition of an omnibus James Bond Collection. I believe it was scheduled as a spring release, but the date was recently removed from the website. And for Spy Vibers interested in learning more about Ian Fleming, Andrew Lycett's Ian Fleming: A Biography will have a new hardcover release by St. Martin's Press on October 1, 2013. The cover design has not been revealed yet. More details as they arrive.
