1977-1979

The first nine movies got Fleming tie-in editions. By the end of the 1970s however there was little resemblance between the source novel and the movie. This prompted the first “novelisations” for the Bond movies. Bond scriptwriter Christopher Wood adapted his own scripts to produce new novels of The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker in the Fleming style.

 

1997-2002

John Gardner followed in the 1980s and 1990s as shown on another page of the site. He was followed by Raymond Benson who started his series of Bond books in 1997. Benson wrote six original Bond novels and three adaptations of the Brosnan movies.
