New 007 book set in 'the classic era of 1969' will be written by the Any Human Heart writer, Ian Fleming's estate announced

A new James Bond novel will be published in September, written by British novelist William Boyd, the estate of the British spy's creator Ian Fleming said on Monday.

Fleming wrote his first Bond novel, Casino Royale, in 1953 and 13 more before he died 11 years later, aged 56.

The title and plot of the new book remain under wraps, but the Fleming estate gave a hint of the style and the setting to woo fans who have been wowed by Daniel Craig's film portrayal of 007 in Skyfall.

"We can reveal that this novel will see a return to the classic Bond era, featuring a 45-year-old 007 in 1969," the estate said.

The novel will be published in Britain on 26 September by Jonathan Cape, Fleming's original publisher, and available from HarperCollins, a subsidiary of News Corp, »
