Quizzed on The 00 Files

Thanks to The 00 Files team for inviting us on to their podcast to discuss The James Bond Lexicon project. Gill and Alan had a great time discussing the book, and quizzing the guys on their James Bond Lexicon based knowledge. And of course, they had to turn the tables on us too! – Now we know to make sure we are fully briefed on the respective heights of Dutch actors in Bond movies!

JBL on JBR

Thanks to Chris Wright and Tom Sears at James Bond Radio for inviting us on to talk about The James Bond Lexicon.

We were honored to be the first guests on their special 007th Anniversary show. You can listen to the show on your favorite podcast platform, or even watch the interview on YouTube.

[Having listened back to our spot on James Bond Radio we realize that Alan made a couple of goofs.

  • Fleming wrote Bond’s obituary in YOLT not OHMSS ! Oops!
  • Jill and Tilly Masterton / Masterson were definitely sisters but not twins.

Sorry about that.]

Bond is Forever, Or Is That For Ever?

An interesting observation that popped up in a discussion on the BondLexicon Twitter channel recently.

The difference in the title spelling of Gardner’s 7th novel.

– The US versions are “Nobody Lives Forever”

– The UK versions are “Nobody Lives For Ever”

Yet the run-on form “forever” is perfectly acceptable use in British English – so why the difference?
