Ian Fleming's original 007 novels are being re-released by Penguin Modern Classics this June...

New Ian Fleming Penguin Modern Classics
27th March 2004

There can be no more potent figure in post-War British fiction than Ian Fleming's James Bond. For fifty years, for better or worse, he has created a sense of heroism which has shaped (or warped) the male mind to a degree that is impossible to imagine British self-identity without it.

Around the world he is as much part of the strange currency of Britishness as Princess Diana or Harry Potter.

Following the success of its Fleming omnibuses, Penguin Modern Classics are now publishing ten major novels individually, celebrating Fleming's brilliant imagination and a group of books which have kept their panache but to modern readers now also speak volumes about a post-War and increasingly post-Empire country.
