New Bond Author Anthony Horowitz Shoots Down Fellow 007 Writers Over Too Many Plot Twists Which 'Fleming Would Never Have Done'

Jack Crone at the Daily Mail offers a piece on Anthony Horowitz's comments about his fellow James Bond continuation writers.

Author Anthony Horowitz has criticised fellow writers' recent attempts at James Bond novels - just days before releasing his own book on the British spy.

The prominent author, whose Bond novel Trigger Mortis is published on Tuesday, has suggested his rivals failed to immerse themselves in Ian Fleming's world like he has done.

His controversial comments come just days after he was forced to apologise for claiming black actor Idris Elba was 'too street' to play Bond.

Horowitz, a dedicated fan of Ian Fleming's spy novels, told The Sunday Times: 'They brought Bond into their worlds whereas I have immersed myself into Bond's.'
