The Young Bond Dossier reported yesterday with an exciting scoop for the literary 007 fans.
The November issue of the UK magazine Tatler features a James Bond/Miss Moneypenny short story title For Your Eyes Only, James by Moneypenny Diaries author Samantha Weinberg.
The story runs at about 3,000 words and is centered on a weekend getaway for Bond and Moneypenny at Royale-les-Eaux in 1956 (which was also featured in Fleming’s first 007 novel, Casino Royale). Ms. Weinberg describes the story as ‘fun in a rather risque manner.’
James Bond-related short stories are a somewhat uncommon occurrence. The most recent one was Raymond Benson’s ‘Live At Five,’ which appeared in a 1999 TV Guide issue.
