PostSubject: Whatever Happened to the Literary James Bond in the 1970s?    Sat Aug 02, 2014 3:57 am

This is a topic I have long wondered about. It formed the basis of an early James Bond article I penned way back in 2005 and then posted it on the CBn and AJB boards. The article later became a Main Page CBn Article when it was re-discovered on the boards by the moderator Qwerty there in March 2008. Sadly this CBn article no longer exists, but as luck would have it I did save a copy of this early article of mine on my The Bondologist Blog:

http://thebondologistblog.blogspot.com/2012/10/the-literary-james-bond-in-1970s.html

I am currently re-writing this article to change and update it with all of the developments in the literary Bond world since it was originally written in 2005 and indeed there have been many as we here all are aware. I wanted to expand the article and eventually replace it with a new 2014 version but as this appears to be the only real article written on the lack of appearances that the literary James Bond put in in the decade of the 1970s I thought that I would throw the floor open to any suggestions members here would have as to what became of the literary James Bond in the 1970s. We all know what became of the cinematic James Bond of the 1970s and how decadent that decade was for him withy hardly any focus on then major issues of the 1970s and a more fantasy-laden spectacle replacing the character construct of Ian Fleming's James Bond in those films but it seems to me at least that we know so little about the literary Bond in the 1970s.

Please read my article linked above as a starting point (I will remove it when I get the new reworked version finished and post it on the blog) to this discussion which I hope is something a bit different for us to discuss in the run-up to a new Young Bond novel and a new Bond film in 2015.

Why not just write the fucking article and see if anyone agrees with you?

This fishing for input is pointless. Either do it or fuck off.

That I am doing now. I just thought I would post a topic to get some debate going as I find this interesting. I was mistaken in this and accept the failure as mine.

How about you shut the f*** up and show some f***ing respect?

We need a list somewhere of all of his noms de guerre.

Edit: Heads up on 'Daylight Assassin.'

Crikey, it's like the bleedin' Stasi. kaboom

I think a list of aliases would be handy and a poster. "Have you seen this man?"
