The James Bond Dossier


So begins Ian Fleming’s Casino Royale, first published in April 1953 and the start of James Bond’s literary career. Although criticised at the time for “sex, sadism and snobbery”, the books of Ian Fleming feature a more complex character than found in the films and are full of detail and vivid imagination.

This site, The James Bond Dossier, looks at the character of James Bond, 007, the secret agent with a licence to kill.
