10/28   Has anyone read any of the original James Bond novels?
        Any recommendations re which one I should start w/?
        \_ Yes.  Casino Royale.  There's a chronological order to them; there
           is a small used book store on W. Portal in SF which used to always
           have first or second print paperbacks if you're interested.  I
           believe From Russia with Love came next, but this guy claims to
           have a correct order:  I wouldn't bother
           with any of the non Ian Fleming books, they're crap.  -John
           \_ Added bonus is that "Casino Royale" will be the next movie.
              \_ About time, too.  CR is the only one that Saltzman/Broccoli
                 didn't manage to snap up the rights to.  The original one
                 with David Niven/Woody Allen is torture to watch.  -John

See all products I have always wanted to read a few of the Ian Fleming novels the James Bo nd movies are based on. It took some time but I was able to get a list o f the books in chronological order. I'm posting the list here, for any o ther 007 fans who might find the information useful. Amazon has a simila r list called "The James Bond Series" but I believe mine is more complet e If I get some time, I'll add the later books written by John Gardner and Raymond Benson. There are additional authors such as Christopher Wood who have also written novelizations of the movies, b ut that's opening up a whole new can of worms. Anyways, click on the above links and they'll take you to the various Bon d books here on Amazon.
