The Lost Adventures of James Bond - by Mark Edlitz

The James Bond universe is greater than you might think. Even if you have seen all the movies and devoured Ian Fleming’s books, there is much more to discover about 007. There is a fascinating galaxy of Bond adventures that have been “lost” or unmade, out-of-print, or forgotten by even the most dedicated Bond fan.

Through his probing interviews with their creators in 'The Lost Adventures of James Bond', Mark Edlitz uncovers different scenarios for Timothy Dalton's abandoned third and fourth Bond movies, questions Toby Stephens about playing 007 on the radio, delve, and exposes the secret history of James Bond Jr, the animated series about 007’s nephew. Edlitz also solves a long-standing Bond literary-mystery, investigates the cheeky commercial which inserts Daniel Craig into a Roger Moore-style escapade, and reveals the story behind Sean Connery’s lost Bond performance.

These and other projects are revealed in this vastly entertaining and enlightening book. Using never-before-seen photographs, Edlitz uncovers a wealth of unexplored lore. 'The Lost Adventures of James Bond is a must for any Bond fan.
