Publisher & Editor, Graham Rye said, “I’m very proud that we’ve reached
this incredible milestone. 007 MAGAZINE has stayed the course and achieved
a treasured status among Bond fans worldwide.”
GRAHAM RYE began publishing 007 MAGAZINE as a part-time venture before
developing it into a full-time commercial enterprise, since when his
publication has become ‘the bible’ for thousands of Bond fans in over 40
countries around the world.
His interest in all things Bond began at the tender age of 11 when his
father took him in 1962 to see the first James Bond film Dr. No.
With the release of Goldfinger in 1964 he discovered Ian Fleming’s
James Bond novels and was hooked – for life!
Rye describes himself as a ‘traditionalist Bond fan’, and considers the
first six films in the series to be the quintessential Bond: “If my home
was on fire and I had time to grab a couple of handfuls of Bond Blu-rays
as I dashed out, it would have to be Dr. No to On Her Majesty’s
Secret Service – perhaps Diamonds Are Forever – but only if it
was a small fire!” Rye is also the author of the best-selling book The
James Bond Girls.
