About the Author
Ian Fleming was born in 1908 and educated at Eton. After a brief period at the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst, he went abroad to further his education. In 1931, having failed to get an appointment in the Foreign Office, he joined Reuters News Agency. During the Second World War, he was personal assistant to the Director of Naval Intelligence at the Admiralty, rising to the rank of Commander. His wartime experiences provided him with a first-hand knowledge of secret operations.

After the war he became Foreign Manager of Kemsley Newspapers. He built his house, Goldeneye, in Jamaica and there at the age of forty-four he wrote Casino Royale, the first of his novels featuring Commander James Bond. By the time of his death in 1964, the James Bond adventures had sold more than forty million copies. Dr No, starring Sean Connery, was released in 1962 and the Bond films continue to be huge international successes. He is also the author of the magical children's book Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Tosh September 21, 2008 review from Goodreads

The ultimate bathtub or plane reading book. It goes from the eyes to the brain, but doesn't stay long there. In fact it's pure air with a promise of something else. But that something else doesn't come along.I was raised with James Bond in the pop culture background, and it's interesting to read...

Andrew October 10, 2010 review from Goodreads

If you are curious about the origins of the most successful film franchise in history but do no have the time or interest to read a spy novel, begin here. It reprints the short stories found in "For Your Eyes Only" and "Octopussy and the Living Daylights," along with difficult to find stories fea...

Becky November 22, 2008 review from Goodreads

I picked up this book because I enjoy the Bond films so much. The Bond of the book world, however, is different in some ways from the Bond of the film world. This Bond, although confident and poised, experiences some inner conflict about the things he must do to serve his country. As in the films...

Marc July 05, 2012 review from Goodreads

These nine stories are more realistic and less fantastic than the novels; there are no depraved villains, no evil global organizations, no elaborate plots to take over the world, no futuristic gadgets. Instead the tales are grounded in the geopolitical context of the late 1950s and early 1960s: C...

Christine E. July 26, 2010 review from Goodreads

I'm enjoying listening to this collection of James Bond short stories. It's highly entertaining pulp, full of fast cars, beautiful women, and exotic locations, as well as some quieter (but to me, equally interesting) tales about greed and love gone wrong. In a few stories, Bond is only a minor ch...
