James Bond News #1: New YA Series

Charlie Higson, who writes the Young Bond kidlit series, is now moving on to an older teen version. On why he's moving to YA:

"The question of sex is the hardest thing - one of the facts we get from one of Bond short stories is that he lost his virginity aged 16 in a brothel in Paris. I don't think I can quite get away with that for a 10-year-old reader."

Should be interesting. No word yet on a release date.
