Anders Frejdh har i över 30 år ägnat en stor del av sitt liv åt James Bond intresset. Först som samlare (hans privata samling, nu en del av FSWL-samlingen, består av över 5,000 objekt), sedan som den stora kraften bakom FSWL och på senare år agent och officiell representant åt aktörer inom filmbranschen. Han har även träffat och intervjuat över 100 personer som arbetat med filmerna inklusive George Lazenby, Roger Moore & Daniel Craig och blir regelbundet inbjuden att hjälpa till vid olika Bond-event runtom i världen. Anders är ofta ombedd att kommentera Bond-relaterade nyheter i media, nu senast den mycket sorgliga nyheten om Sir Roger Moores bortgång. Han har också bidragit till olika böcker och publikationer om agent 007.>Artiklar av Anders

Andrew McNess skriver om James Bond-filmer på A View On Bond och är författaren till A Close Look At A VIEW TO A KILL. Hans första erfarenhet av Bond var en TV-visning av THUNDERBALL, en utmärkt introduktion om det någonsin fanns en (även om en biovisning skulle ha varit bättre). Även om han gillade både Bond-romanerna och filmerna som barn och tonåring var det en återupplivning av filmerna på mitten av nittiotalet som verkligen stärkte hans intresse. Han har alltid tyckt om Bondians troper, men det är variationen och experimenteringen som finns inom dessa delar från film till film som verkligen inspirerar hans skrivande. Bortom Bond hanterar Andrew sajten Alan J. Pakula: A Cinema of Anxiety och skriver om film på Slivers of Cinema. >Artiklar av Andrew

Erik Olsson växte upp med James Bond och började se filmerna innan han kunde skriva. Som 10-åring kunde han massor om Bond-filmerna men numera njuter han mest av det han kommer ihåg och att se filmerna så ofta han kan. Bond är ständigt närvarande i vardagen. Det ledde till att han lärde sig att hoppa fallskärm och dyka med hajar utanför Bahamas. Med mera. Han älskar att besöka de exotiska inspelningsplatserna och för några år sedan uppfylldes en pojkdröm att ha en egen vit Lotus. Och 2015 uppfylldes en annan livslång dröm. Att vara statist i en Bond-film (SPECTRE). Erik arbetar som Internet entreprenör och driver svenska fritiden.se och redtienda.com i spansk-talande marknader. >Artiklar av Erik

Mats Hilli har varit Bond-entusiast allt sedan han som tioåring för första gången såg Dr. No på tv i sitt hemland Finland. De oförglömliga filmupplevelserna fick honom också att börja intressera sig för Ian Flemings böcker och de författare som förvaltade arvet efter Bond-skaparen. I mogen ålder började projektet att läsa samtliga Bond-romaner, vilket pågår fortfarande till hans stora glädje. När Mats inte läser Bond-romaner ägnar han sig åt arbetet som gymnasielärare och hans familj. Han gillar inte Vodka Martini, men tillreder och avnjuter gärna äggröra à la Bond. >Artiklar av Mats
