New us paperback edition For Special Services
Publication of a new paperback edition of For Special Services, John Gardner's second James Bond novel, with an introduction by Otto Penzler.

In For Special Services, Bond is on loan to the United States government, his partner none other than the tough and beautiful Cedar, daughter of 007’s old friend Felix Leiter. Their enemy? An old adversary, the legendary SPECTRE has reappeared. Bond and Cedar find themselves in some deadly and terrifying situations—from skyjack to plunging elevator, from armies of killer ants in the Midwest to horror on a private monorail—before they come face to face with the heir to Blofeld’s iniquitous empire.

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.

Otto Penzler is the proprietor of The Mysterious Bookshop in New York City. He is the founder of the Mysterious Press and Otto Penzler Books, and has received an Edgar Award, an Ellery Queen Award, and a Raven Award for his contribution to the mystery field. His anthology The Black Lizard Big Book of Pulps was a New York Times Bestseller.
