Publication of a new paperback edition of License Renewed, John Gardner's first James Bond novel, with an introduction by fellow James Bond continuation writer Raymond Benson.

In License Renewed, the most famous secret agent in the world pits his nerve and cunning against a dangerously deranged opponent—one prepared to sacrifice most of the Western world to prove that only he can make it safe from accidental holocaust. As the seconds tick away on the valued Rolex Oyster Perpetual, the world comes nearer this ironic annihilation; Bond comes nearer a frightful death and ever nearer Miss Lavender Peacock.

Thriller writer John Gardner (1926-2007) was an English spy novelist, most notably for the continuation of official James Bond novels following Ian Fleming. His other novels include the Boysie Oakes series and the Sherlock Holmes Moriarty pastiches.

Between 1996 and 2002, Raymond Benson assumed the mantel of writing the 007 novels. He wrote six Bond novels during that time and three film novelizations. His James Bond Bedside Companion was nominated for an Edgar award. Pegasus Books has brought Benson's Bond books back into print in two collections: James Bond: The Union Trilogy and James Bond: Choice of Weapons.
