ESPIONAGE CENTRAL: THE RETURN OF MATT HELM!

ESPIONAGE CENTRAL: THE RETURN OF MATT HELM!

TITAN BOOKS ANNOUNCES THEIR PLANS TO REISSUE THE FANTASTIC MATT HELM NOVELS STARTING IN 2013 . . .

Titan Books announced today that beginning in 2013, they will reissue the original Matt Helm® spy thrillers written by Donald Hamilton, starring the famed counter-agent whose career included 27 novels spanning more than three decades, four films, and a network television series.

The first Matt Helm® novel, Death of a Citizen, was released in 1960, just two years after publication of Ian Fleming’s Casino Royale—which hadn’t yet caught on in the United States. Otto Penzlernoted, “Whereas Bond was a sophisticate who knew wine, expensive cars, and tuxedos, Helm lived much of the time in the American Southwest, drove a pickup truck, and wore flannel shirts.” The novel introduced a man in his mid-thirties, 6’4” and intelligent, who had been a military assassin eliminating Nazis during World War II . . .

  1. That's fantastic news. I always loved the Helm books and have most of the original paperbacks.

  2. I didn't see anything about them also publishing the last Helm book that Hamilton wrote before he died. I hope they'll do that one too!
