This book celebrates the greatest of all postwar British fictional icons. For too long the Bond films have overshadowed their literary source - the bizarre, baroque world of Ian Fleming.
Full rein is given in this anthology to Fleming's wonderful creations - the deranged villains, their horrifying associates and their surreal lairs; from Dr. No's guano island to Blofeld's Garden of Death. Full attention to is paid to the girls, cars, food, drink and cigarettes consumed by the books' brutal, resourceful hero.
From the first Bond novel, "Casino Royale" to the last to be fully finished, "You Only Live Twice", there is an extraordinary zest and ingenuity to Fleming's imagination and "My Name's Bond..." allows readers to see perhaps as never before the author's remarkable abilities. He was, above all, a creator of great set pieces and it is these that are surely at the root of the films' great and lasting success.
