In Paris, James Bond meets his match over appetizers and cocktails—with an aperitif of industrial espionage and chilly sadism. Off the coast of Australia, he learns about a whole new level of betrayal under the scorching light of a ball of thunder. In Siberia, he dreams of endless carnage while his fate is decided by one of his most cunning enemies and perhaps the greatest of his many loves.

And in Canada—where Ian Fleming’s work has entered public domain—James Bond finds freedom.

Licence Expired: The Unauthorized James Bond lives in this shadow space of copyright law: a collection of nineteen new, exciting, transformative James Bond stories by a diverse crew of 21 st-century authors. Collected herein are new stories about Secret Agent 007, as the late Ian Fleming imagined and described him: a psychically wounded veteran of the Second World War and soldier of the Cold War, who treated his accumulated injuries with sex, alcohol, nicotine, and adrenaline. He was a good lover . . . but a terrible prospect.

He was James Bond.

And in Licence Expired, he’s back in action.

Featuring new stories by Jacqueline Baker, Laird Barron, Richard Lee Byers, E. L. Chen, A.M. Dellamonica, Jeffrey Ford, James Alan Gardner, Kathryn Kuitenbrouwer, Claude Lalumière, Catherine MacLeod, Jamie Mason, Iain McLaughlin, Corey Redekop, Kelly Robson, Ian Rogers, Karl Schroeder, Michael Skeet, Charles Stross, and Robert J. Wiersema.
