No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to blog!
Aston Martin has released a “commuter car.” The London Times is not amused. Eighteen Goldeneye residences are available for sale. Yes, the real Goldeneye. The Huffington Post celebrates Goldfinger. Online betting has begun for the next Bond girl. All the usual suspects are there (Sienna Miller? Seriously?), but I doubt any will be the real […]
I was so struck by this one scene in Quantum of Solace, near the end. Bond and Camille are about to go into the Big Explosive Hotel of Death; they’re crouched behind some big rocks, and Camille is preparing to kill the man who murdered her parents. If you’ve read Ian Fleming, this scene should […]
This list of faves and least faves, the staple of any Bond conversation, is described as a “Bluffer’s Guide to Bond.” Well, I suppose if you’re bluffing, it’s as good as any other. Writer Susan Hazlett is eloquent about the anticipation and excitement she feels just before a new Bond film opens. We feel you. […]
Ten James Bond Characters Who Deserve Their Own Spin-Off Oasis talks about Bond during a concert. A quick review of the new release of Ian Fleming’s 007 short stories. A review of the new release of the Bond, James Bond CD, on a blog with a very familiar skin. Xfm has a short, fairly easy […]

A great fictional Fleming read.
Here’s an interesting snippet a friend sent about the upcoming Sir Roger Moore/Rosamund Pike event in October.
Pike from Die Another Day will be reading as Honeychile Rider of Ian Fleming’s Dr. No as part of the centenary celebration.

Ian Fleming could scarcely have imagined the longevity and influence of his most famous literary creation, a British superspy named James Bond. Three generations of fans have enjoyed […]
I’ve linked to these reviews before. Keith Phipps got a “box of paperbacks” at a garage sale, from which he periodically reviews an older and/or obscure book. There were several Bond books in the box. Now he’s reviewing Goldfinger. It’s a smart review, he hits the high points and low points. When writers of literary […]
Quantum of Solace will be the headline title for a collection of Fleming’s Bond short stories from For Your Eyes Only and Octopussy & The Living Daylights. Such news is old, however, a very attractive new edition is forthcoming. Designed to match the excellent Penguin American softcovers of recent years, the new edition looks to […]
