'We meet again Mr Bond': Pussy Galore returns

Everyone loves a Bond girl, and despite the original series ending around 50 years ago, one author is hoping to resurrect a famous character.

The latest adventure for 007 agent, James Bond, will see him reunite with leading lady Pussy Galore in "Trigger Mortis," announced today on what would have been Ian Fleming's 107th birthday.

Set to be published this September, the latest mission is set in 1957, two weeks after Bond's previous escapades with Pussy Galore in Goldfinger. Bond will be working with the iconic Bond girl in the middle of the Soviet-American Space Race, as the US get ready for a powerful rocket launch.

Whilst most details are under wraps, the novel's beginning will throw Bond into the adrenaline-packed world of Grand Prix racing, using unpublished material from "Murder on Wheels", a television episode that was never aired.

Like many Bond episodes, Pussy Galore won't be the only woman to capture the agent's eye. A new Bond girl named Jeopardy Lane will appear, along with a "sadistic, scheming" Korean rival, Jai Seung Sin.

Author of "Trigger Mortis", Anthony Horowitz, said it was always his intention to "go back to the true Bond" in a statement, adding that original, unseen material from Fleming will be featured to whet fans appetites.

"My aim was to make this the most authentic James Bond novel anyone could have written," Horowitz said.

James Bond not only made millions of individuals want to become spies, but has sold over 100 million copies from the 14-novel series and was the inspiration behind countless number of films, including Spectre, out this November.

Literary revival

Bond is not the first fictional character to have revived after their author's death.

J.M. Barrie's classic, Peter Pan, was brought back to life by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson in 2004, with "Peter and the Starcatchers" in an attempt to answer the unanswerable questions of how Peter Pan came to be.

Hercule Poirot, Agatha Christie's meticulous Belgian detective, was resurrected in Sophie Hannah's mystery "The Monogram Murders" (2014), the first new Poirot edition since Christie's death in 1976. Ms. Hannah claimed in an interview with The New York Times, that she was "determined to not copy Agatha's style" as "only Agatha Christie can write like Agatha Christie" despite wanting to closely model the detective's traits. The novel was criticized however for failing to emulate Christie's sublime simplicity.

Taking influence from original literary greats isn't an area Horowitz is unfamiliar with either. Horowitz has written two Sherlock Holmes novels, and has had screenwriting credits with adapting Poirot.

Published by Orion Publishing, "Trigger Mortis" is set to release on September 8th 2015. The novel has been commissioned and authorized by Ian Fleming Publications and the Ian Fleming Estate.
