Annotations and chronologies for ian flemings bon
Did you ever read a book and, when the author off-handedly throws in an expression or a reference to something obscure, wonder if it is a bit of fact or fiction? What does that foreign phrase translate to? What would be that monetary amount be at today's rates? Was there really a full moon on that day?

Well, Ian Fleming was well-known for being the master of detail when he wrote the 21 adventures of James Bond; and John Griswold has written what must be considered the absolute companion for the literary world of Secret Agent 007.

Mr. Griswold seems to have explored every possible detail of Fleming's Bond and has produced a table book that is both academic for the hardcore fan and, yet, entertaining for the novice that just wonders what all the fuss was, and still is, about Mr. Fleming's writings that made him one of the most famous authors of the 20th century (and, with the release of the latest motion picture, Casino Royale, heavily based on the first novel, a merit that now stems into the 21st century).

With researched detail that would rival Mr. Fleming, author John Griswold shows us that there is much more fact than fiction in the incredible world of James Bond. Full of surprises, the book is a labour of love that should be both informative and fun for anyone.

Nobody has done it better!
