5.0 out of 5 stars A note from a contributor, October 21, 2010
This review is from: James Bond in World and Popular Culture: The Films Are Not Enough (Hardcover)
This is a very impressive collection of essays about James Bond, covering a very diverse range of topics. Unfortunately, it is poorly copy-edited, and contains numerous typos. An essay I contributed to this volume, "The Fleming Chronicles", contains a glaring error: I wrote about Ian Fleming references in the works of OTHER authors, but in the printed version, my first paragraph incorrectly refers to Fleming's own works.

Typos and errors aside, the overall quality of the research that went into this collection is quite good. Don't let the high price scare you off - at 500 pages, you definitely get value for your money. This is a must-have for any serious Bond collector.

UPDATE: A Second, revised edition has just been published, and listed separately on Amazon. The editors have presumably corrected all of the errors and typos mentioned above. At least my essay has been fixed ... other contributors will have to weigh in on their individual essays.
