About the Author
Ian Lancaster Fleming was born in London in 1908. His first job was at Reuters news agency after which he worked briefly as a stockbroker before working in Naval Intelligence during the Second World War. His first novel, Casino Royale, was published in 1953 and was an instant success. Fleming went on to write thirteen other Bond books as well as two works of non-fiction and the childrens classic Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. The Bond books have sold over sixty million copies and earned praise from figures such as Raymond Chandler who called Fleming the most forceful and driving writer of thrillers in England and President Kennedy who named From Russia with Love as one of his favourite books. The books inspired a hugely successful series of film adaptations which began in 1962 with the release of Dr No, starring Sean Connery as 007. Fleming was married to Anne Rothermere with whom he had a son, Caspar. He died in 1964.

But for me Roger Moore is the best Bond, smooth, suave, witty and deadpan. And Scaramanga the best villain because...
Much like the previous Bond adventure, in which Fleming had an opportunity to re-invent Bond or at least present him in a new light with new animations and motivations, he missed the mark and allowed a Flotsam of James Bond to regress to the mean of what James Bond usually is. It was pathetic rea...
The least satisfying of Fleming's Bond books, likely because it wasn't quite done when the author died. Bond, presumed dead after the climax of You Only Live Twice but brainwashed by the KGB, reappears and attempts to assassinate M. Re-programmed, Bond is then sent on a purportedly low stakes ass...
While at Lincoln Junior High School I had two sets of friends. Ralph Bloomdahl and his younger brother, Steve, were the ones in the neighborhood, Ralph having been in class with me since I moved to Park Ridge, Illinois in fifth grade. Like me, he wasn't popular, but at least he wasn't unpopular....
