THE RED DRAGONS--New Bond Book I'm Working On!

Post by THE BATPHONE! »

I am currently writing a James Bond 007 novel, titled The Red Dragons. I do not expect this to ever be published, it's just a little fan project I have been working on. I'm hoping to get a website up and running to post each chapter as I write them. I will post the links here if enough interest is raised. I know we have a couple Bond fans on this board so I'd thought I would Share It. The plot (so far) goes as follows:

"Look up! Look down! It’s Bond, James Bond! He’s back, and better than ever! A brand new novel, packed with thrills! After the events of Dr. No, agent 007 is sent on a globe-trotting adventure to find the core of a mysterious organization, Known as The Red Dragons! With the help of the fierce Honey Rider, and longtime companion, Agent Felix Leiter, Bond is about to face a whole new set of dangerous challenges! From deadly Piranhas to samurai, this action packed continuation of Dr. no, set before From Russia with Love, will be sure to excite you! Watch out, Bond is coming!"
This is just a quick cover draft:

Sounds interesting. Best of luck with it and be sure to post the web address when you get the site up and running. I'll definitely check it out.

Not sure you can get someone else's property published without their consent. Not sure of the legalities of a fan based book. I would assume if you dont sell it and make any money from it you should be fine? I'm not a lawyer, I just watch them on TV.
Music. BAT! Music.

I'm not intending to publish or make any money from this book. It's just a little project for me to do to make the time go by. It'll be available (probably as a PDF) on a webpage fo free viewing.

Actually, the literary rights to the James Bond character passed into the public domain in Canada and several other nations in 2015 (strange but true!), so if you could find a publisher, it could see print there. But you'd have to be careful to include only elements from the Fleming novels, and not the films.

There's a pretty healthy Bond fanfic community online, from what I understand. Hope it's a fun project for you.

Sorry for the lack of updates, I'm having some trouble with the website, so it will probably be a while before that is up and running unfortunately. Here's a little something I created for the web page:
