Ian Fleming covers rule!

Also, just read today someone picked up the contract on the original Flaming Bond novels. New set coming.

I have them all in various paperbacks, but would enjoy a reasonably priced e'set, as well. Maybe they'll do that for me ;) (or, maybe even a print set that matches)

I hear ya Paul, I have quite a number of doubles on account of great pulpy covers.

Paul R. McNamee said...

Flaming Bond?

Clearly, I meant Fleming! (sorry)

Keith said...

Flaming Bond? Isn't that the one where he spilled his vodka martini (shaken, not stirred) on himself and ash from his cigarette ignited it?

David J. West said...

I didn't even catch the error until Paul recommented.

Okie said...

Fabulous finds as always.

I love the "I'm old" pics. I don't feel that old until I think about things like that.

I also love those James Bond covers. I have a couple of the books picked up from thrift stores, etc, but they're fairly dry covers as covers go.

Loved the Flaming Bond conversation above, BTW. :)

Charles Gramlich said...

Yeah, I was wondering if "Flaming Bond" was a series of Bond sex romp books of which I was unfamiliar.

David J. West said...

Okie, Charles - I hope Paul knows how much we appreciate his contribution to Bond Lit.

Those are great. I must share the rebel bass one with my bass-playing son. He'll get a huge kick out of that.

Excellent Angie-Bass is awesome!
