Bond. James Bond.  I am not even close to as cool as that.  I don’t even think I could be friends with Ian Fleming, who created James Bond.  But that doesn’t mean I can’t get lured into the world of Secret Service, beautiful ladies and high-stakes card games.  And, in a few short pages, Fleming does just that.  In fact, all of the Fleming’s Bond novels are quite short (which makes me wonder about the new Bond novel by Sebastian Faulks, Devil May …

About this book


The allure of James Bond was best described by Raymond Chandler, who insisted that 007 is "what every man would like to be and what every woman would like to have between her sheets." Who can argue with that? This month marks the 40th anniversary of the film release of Dr. No, which was the first Bond adventure to make the big screen, and two big coffee-table books are being published to honor the occasion (LJ 10/1/02, p. 96). Shockingly, Fleming's original novels have gone out of print, but Penguin here reproduces a trio of the British secret agent's early outings, released in 1952, 1958, and 1959, respectively, sporting stylish cover art. These stories were racy for the nifty Fifties but are quite tame by today's standards. Still, they can be fun.
