Amazon to Reissue James Bond Books

Amazon has cut a deal for a ten-year print and eBook license for North American rights to Ian Fleming‘s James Bond series. Starting this summer, Amazon Publishing’s Thomas & Mercer imprint will re-release the classic spy series.

Curtis Brown managing director Jonny Geller negotiated the deal. Amazon has also acquired the rights to two nonfiction books written by Fleming:  Thrilling Cities and The Diamond Smugglers. Geller had this comment in the release: “This deal heralds a new phase in Ian Fleming’s publishing story. We are excited to be working with Amazon in North America to bring a new generation of readers to Ian Fleming’s classic novels.”

Last year, the Thomas & Mercer imprint announced that acquired the rights to 47 books by the late crime writer Ed McBain.
