licenceexpiredCo-editors Madeline Ashby and David Nickle have provided the table of contents for Expired: The Unauthorized James Bond, which is scheduled for release in November 2015. If you’re thinking “hey, James Bond isn’t SFF!” check out all the genre authors in that list!

About the book:

This is a new anthology of short stories featuring James Bond now that Ian Fleming’s work has entered the public domain in Canada.

Since only Fleming’s Bond novels have entered the public domain, the stories won’t reference the films, subsequent novels written by others, or any media tie-ins. However, within Fleming’s works are well-known villains Rosa Klebb, Oddjob, Dr. No, SMERSH, Ernst Stavro Blofeld and SPECTRE. Familiar allies include Moneypenny, Honey Rider, Pussy Galore, Felix Leiter and Quarrel. The story authors will be able to call on any of these characters and organizations along with the many others that have appeared in Fleming’s stories.
