'And "proliferation" became the word of the day...'

Very different from the film. This is not such a bad thing; I am finding the oeuvre of Roger Moore rather slow going. (No quibbles about his performance, but the actual films are terrible.) There is a villain called Hugo Drax, and that is about the only similarity.

Ian Fleming's tedious style aside (a series of info-dumps linked by occasional bursts of action), book!Bond is much less slappable than film!Bond.

A rather charming collection of very short pieces, fact, fiction, and somewhere in between. Largely sitting technically within the sci-fi genre, this is a particularly accessible bunch. My favourites were probably 'F is for Fairies', 'Neptune', and 'The Mask'. I'd like to read the wider story around the latter.
