James Bond - The Man & the Myth

There is only one real James Bond.

James Bond, the American ornithologist from who Ian Fleming appropriated the name for his secret agent 007, the author of the book Birds of the West Indies.

Some years ago I wrote a manuscript Goldeneye - James Bond & Ian Fleming - the Men & the Myth, based on my personal experiences investigating the background of James Bond authenticus.

Somewhere in the Caribbean is Part One.

I will post Part II as soon as someone logs on or emails me and asks me to.

On this 100th anniversary of Ian Fleming's birth, I thought I would start this blog to call some attention to the real facts of both men, the novelist and the ornithologist.
