Lexicon Signing

Thanks to the fine folks at Austin Books & Comics for being such great hosts for our recent James Bond Lexicon in-store book-signing event. We had a great time meeting lots of folks and chatting about Bond. And a special vote of thanks to those fine folks who also picked up a signed copy of the Lexicon, we appreciated the interest and support.

A Really Fun Podcast

We had a great time recently chatting with Tom and John from the Really 007 crew along with Licence to Queer‘s David Lowbridge-Ellis. about the James Bond Lexicon. Even if they did point out that we’d missed a few things. (I’ll never look at the Corgi model of the BMW Z3 from GoldenEye now without thinking I should have turned it around). You can join in the fun by listening to the latest Really 007! podcast episode HERE.

Bantering about Bond, and Beatles

We were delighted to be invited back to participate in Jack Lugo’s fun Bond and Banter podcast recently and had a great time discussing The James Bond Lexicon, sharing a few thoughts on No Time To Die, as well as talking about Alan’s Beatles podcast Before They Were Beatles, and much more. You can check it out by clicking HERE.

No Time To Die First Reactions

It’s been a six year wait for a new James Bond movie. So was it worth the wait? The team at the On Her Majesty’s Secret Podcast network have now all seen No Time To Die (some of us multiple times). So what did we think? We have recorded a short series of initial reaction podcasts that you can find here:

Talking Bond at Comicpalooza

The Bond Lexicon team (i.e. Gillian and Alan) had a great time at the recent Comicpalooza pop-culture event in Houston TX, where we’d been asked to present our “25 Things You Didn’t Know About James Bond” panel. It was interesting, and a little different, being on an open stage in the middle of the main convention floor. We got a good engaged crowd, had some fun throwing out a mix of 007 themed trivia questions and facts for the audience. Thanks also to the few folks who stayed a while after the panel and picked up signed copies of The James Bond Lexicon to take home with them. – It was good to be back on the convention circuit again and meeting people.

A Complex Chat About the Lexicon

We were delighted to recently be asked to join Edgar and Matt of the excellent James Bond Complex podcast for a wide ranging conversation about all things 007 related. It was a fun and at times insightful conversation with some great questions.

You can tune in to the podcast HERE or watch along on YouTube.

CIC Debriefs the Lexicon

The guys at the excellent Central Intelligence Cinema podcast were crazy enough to ask us to be the first guests on their new “Special Operations Debrief” shows. We had a great time discussing many aspects of Bond geekdom as well as diving into some of the details of the The James Bond Lexicon.

You can listen the the conversation HERE.

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.]
