What better way to spend the summer than lounging in your secret lair with an e-reader gadget filled with James Bond adventures. The timing couldn't be better! In addition to the original Fleming stories that are already available as eBooks, Spy Vibers can now dive into the many continuation novels that have been published since 1968. First up is a pair of film novelizations that I didn't expect to see adapted for electronic devices. Christopher Wood's The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker from the 1970s will be published on June 21st, 2013. Cover designs below from Amazon.

As of today, most of the John Gardener catalog has been released in eBook format. You can now download License Renewed (intro by Raymond Benson), For Special Services, Icebreaker, Role of Honor, Nobody Lives Forever, No Deals Mr. Bond, Scorpius, Win Lose or Die, License to Kill, Brokenclaw, and Goldeneye. Gardner's remaining five novels, The Man From Barbarossa, Death is Forever, Never Send Flowers, Seafire, and Cold will be published in 2014. John Gardner cover collection below from the Illustrated 007

James Bond novels by Raymond Benson (The Black Stiletto) now available as eBooks are Never Dream of Dying, Zero Minus Ten, The Facts of Death, High Time to Kill, Doubleshot, and The Man With the Red Tattoo. Benson's non-fiction classic The James Bond Bedside Companion is also available. And if that's not enough, Spy Vibers can also download Colonel Sun by Kingsley Amis, Carte Blanche by Jeffery Deaver, and Devil May Care by Sebastian Faulks. For completists out there, Raymond Benson's novelizations, Tomorrow Never Dies, The World is Not Enough, and Die Anther Day are out of print. Benson eBook cover collection below from Cinema Retro. May the James Bond marathon begin!
