100 Years of Ian Fleming

The blogosphere is abuzz with it today and, of course, J. Kingston Pierce has got our back on the topic at The Rap Sheet.

In case you have no idea what I’m talking about, James Bond creator Ian Fleming would have been 100 today. (Of course, there was no chance that was going to happen: all that booze. All those smokes. He was a lot younger than 100 when he died of a heart attack on August 12, 1964.

Not coincidentally, today also marks the publication date of Devil May Care (Doubleday), a new Bond novel by “Sebastian Faulks, writing as Ian Fleming.” Obviously, The Rap Sheet has that covered as well.
