Boyd to Write Bond

British novelist and screenwriter William Boyd has been announced as the next James Bond author. His novel, not yet titled, will be published next year, and will return Bond to the late 1960s, as Kingsley Amis did in COLONEL SUN and Sebastian Faulks did in DEVIL MAY CARE.

I miss the continuity of Gardner's and Benson's Bond series, but the standalone approach probably generates more interest in James Bond year to year.
