"Strike Lightning" Released In Oz

The third Young Bond novel written by Steve Cole titled "Strike Lightning" has been released in Australia.  The book is published by Red Fox and I really like the uniform covers designed by BlackSheep-UK.  I have titled this series of covers the Red Fox series.  Strangely the copy of "Shoot To Kill" shown in the link is still not available here in Oz with this copy purchased in Singapore by a friend.

I purchased this copy of "Strike Lightning" from Dymocks in Camberwell which is a regular haunt of mine.

Mountains Of Books Bookfair This Weekend

I'm currently sitting in a warm sunlit car having just scoured all twelve book stalls at the annual Mountains Of Books Bookfair in Ferny Creek, The Dandenongs.

There are hundreds of books on a wide variety of subjects for sale and when I arrived at 10am there were already plenty of like-minded people checking them out.

I managed to find several James Bond books for sale.

The book fair is open this weekend from 10am til 4pm.  I purchased two books - a 1964 hardback edition of "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" by Ian Fleming with a nice dust jacket and also a non-Bond related non-fiction book - "Thylacine" by David Owen, which will soon become my bedtime reading.
