BATTLE FOR BOND
The second edition of the most controversial book ever written about
the development of James Bond from literary character to screen hero
was re-published on 23rd June 2008. Robert Sellers’ book The
Battle For Bond is now smaller in size, with less photographs
than the original, but in a more affordable edition (under a £tenner)
and with completely unaltered text. The author and publisher have
written a new introduction detailing their feelings about The
Fleming Will Trust's actions against them and the first edition of
But the grand coup for this second edition is a brand new foreword
by no less a personage than ‘Harry Palmer’ author Len Deighton,
where he includes fascinating personal insights into his friendship
with Ian Fleming, and Kevin McClory, as well as the author's
personal feelings about the banning of the first edition.
