James Bond, code name 007, is a fictional character created in 1953 by writer Ian Fleming, who featured him in twelve novels and two short story collections. There have been six other authors who wrote authorised Bond novels or novelizations after Fleming's death in 1964: Kingsley Amis, Christopher Wood, John Gardner, Raymond Benson, Sebastian Faulks and Jeffery Deaver; a new novel, written by William Boyd, is planned for release in 2013. Additionally, Charlie Higson wrote a series on a young James Bond and Kate Westbrook wrote three novels based on the diaries of a recurring series character, Moneypenny.

Famous quotes containing the words bond and/or james:

    Camillo. Prosperity’s the very bond of love,
    Whose fresh complexion and whose heart together
    Affliction alters.
    Perdita. One of these is true:
    I think affliction may subdue the cheek,
    But not take in the mind.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The absolute things, the last things, the overlapping things, are the truly philosophic concerns; all superior minds feel seriously about them, and the mind with the shortest views is simply the mind of the more shallow man.
    —William James (1842–1910)
