  1. 'OO7' Magazine: A Complete Bibliography

    John Cox

    ‘OO7’ Magazine was the official magazine of the James Bond International Fan Club for 25 years before going independant in 2005. The magazine’s content was always first class. In the pages of ‘OO7’ you could find lengthy in-dept interviews with such Bond luminaries as Timothy Dalton, John Glen, Raymond Benson, and John Gardner. Within the pages of ‘OO7’ are facts and photos found nowhere else.

    Today back issues of ‘OO7’ are hot collectibles. But which issue contains that choice interview or story that you simply must have?

    To help you on your search, here collected for the very first time is a complete checklist bibliography of ‘OO7’ Magazine — the covers, the content, and some choice news and rumours that didn’t always turn out to be true.

    Happy hunting.
