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 twelve other Bond books as well as two works of non-fiction and the children?s 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 1961 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.

Reviews

Mr Fleming is the best thriller writer since Buchan. * Evening Standard *
Ian Fleming traces the intricacies of counter-espionage with all the efficient authority of 007's own secret reports * Sunday Times *
A brilliant gem! * Publishers Weekly *
Admirers of James Bond will be glad to have them to add to their collection * Sunday Telegraph *
Stories which, in their fascinated pouring on things - guns, techniques, foodstuffs - remind us that it is the mastery of the world of things, rather than people, that gives Fleming his peculiar literary niche -- Anthony Burgess
