Amazon Acquires Rights to Ian Fleming’s Bond Novels

From a press release: “, Inc. and Ian Fleming Publications Ltd today announced that Amazon Publishing has acquired a ten-year license for North American rights to the entire list of James Bond books by Ian Fleming in print and ebook.”

Fleming’s two works of non-fiction — a collection of travel writings called Thrilling Cities (1963) and an expose of the illegal precious stones trade entitled The Diamond Smugglers (1957) — are also included in the agreement.

The question not answered by Amazon is whether or not people will be able to purchase the Bond books in North America from anywhere other than Amazon.
