Charlie Higson, as in Charles Higson? Formerly of the punk band, The Higsons (with the great song "I Don't Want to Live with Monkeys"), he wrote, produced and performed in The Fast Show. I read one of his crime novels, Getting Rid of Mister Kitchen, kind of a Brit punk take on Hitchcock's Trouble with Harry -- very twisted, very funny. Are these Bond YAs going to be comedy?
