The new Nick Stone, published November this year, will be called “Exit Wound”!!

Well… it’s the worktitle anyway. (Last years Flashback turned into Brute Force, so who knows.)

No synopsis yet, in fact just the worktitle and when it is supposed to be published – but I must say “Exit Wound” doesn’t sound too promising for Nick!! Need a nurse??? 😉

Greymansland was informed (bows gracefully to the source) that the title of the new Nick Stone novel, coming up this November, has been altered into “Brute Force”. The synopsis still stands.

Perhaps that is the reason why the cover is still not published?

We also learned that there has been made a slight alteration to the Seven Troop cover: Andy’s decorations DCM and MM have been added.

Last – but definitely not least: all fans start saving up their money, Andy has been spending 4 days in the studio to narrate the audio version of Seven Troop! So apart from the printed version, us die hard fans will have to get hold of that one too!!

The chance to name the villain in Andy McNab’s next book is sold for £10,000 at auction

“The SAS soldier-turned-author auctioned off the character’s naming rights in support of a new charity in memory of legendary Anglo-Irish Polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton.

The McNab lot helped the foundation raise £61,700 at a Shackleton Foundation gala dinner in central London last night.

The winner has not yet decided what to name the villain in the book.”

See the full article here

Now I do wonder if there are certain conditions. I mean.. what if the winner wants the villain to be named G W Bush?? Or decides to name him after hers/his ex-spouse. Could she/he be sued? And…does it have to be a man? (sheesh, shocking that I assume the villain will be male, what does that say about me? Or about men for that matter :-p). Or name the villain after his or hers present partner? Will the relationship be over? Or will he/she be loved even more….What about names like Chris Ryan, or Duncan Falconer. Real names may be off limits, but are pseudonyms??

Anyway, I’m curious. So if anyone has an idea, or the winner wants to share the name and background… let us know! 🙂

Andy McNab fans are being offered the chance to have the villain in his next book named after them.

The SAS soldier-turned-author will auction off the character’s naming rights next week in support of a new charity in memory of legendary Anglo-Irish Polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton.

The Shackleton Foundation will fund projects that embody the adventurer’s spirit and hunger for “calculated risk”.

McNab said: “I’m delighted to have the opportunity to support this new charity.

“Shackleton has always been a hero of mine, and I think the Foundation’s mission to identify similarly inspiring leaders in today’s world is excellent.”

The lot is expected to raise at least £50,000 when it is sold at a Shackleton Foundation gala dinner on June 25.

Advance bids can be made via the charity’s website: www.shackletonfoundation.org

If you wish to make a written bid in advance of the auction you should email auction@shackletonfoundation.org by 24th June 2008.
