James Fleming's Comment about My Book

Book Collector kudos
James Fleming is the editor of The Book Collector and nephew of Ian Fleming (who founded the highly regarded quarterly in 1952, the same year he wrote Casino Royale).

When he heard about this book and its pledge to raise money and awareness for conservation the Caribbean, he wrote in The Book Collector:

"The title is The Real James Bond ... It's coming out in [2020] and the charity is The Nature Conservancy's initiative in the Caribbean. Both Ian and the real James Bond would have approved."

The book is out, and because of the pandemic, I'll still be doing lots of Zoom talks (and raising money and awareness for Caribbean conservation) in 2021.

I hope to some in-person talks as well -- perhaps beginning with the Acadia Birding Festival and other events on Maine's Mount Desert Island, the real James Bond's favorite summer place.

Email me if you'd like me to talk to your group: 1realjamesbond (at)

(Thank you, James!)
