The villains names

Many of the names used in the Bond works came from people Fleming knew: Scaramanga, the principal villain in The Man with the Golden Gun, was named after a fellow Eton schoolboy with whom Fleming fought; Goldfinger, from the eponymous novel, was named after British architect Ernő Goldfinger, whose work Fleming abhorred Sir Hugo Drax, the antagonist of Moonraker, was named after after Fleming's acquaintance Admiral Sir Reginald Aylmer Ranfurly Plunkett-Ernle-Erle-Drax Drax's assistant, Krebs, bears the same name as Hitler'slast Chief of Staff; and one of the homosexual villains from Diamonds Are Forever, "Boofy" Kidd, was named after one of Fleming's close friends—and a relative of his wife—Arthur Gore, 8th Earl of Arran, known as Boofy to his friends.

James Bond: The New Mission

The title and plot may remain a closely guarded secret, but we are delighted to announce that William Boyd’s new Bond novel will be published in the UK by Jonathan Cape on 26th September 2013, and will be available from HarperCollins in the United States and Canada from early October.

We can reveal that this novel will see a return to the classic Bond era, featuring a 45 year old 007 in 1969. Visitwww.jamesbondthenewmission.co.uk to hear all the latest news as it is announced. More information coming soon…

1969. A veteran secret agent. A single mission. A licence to kill. James Bond returns.

"That's not an inappropriate interpretation. Your OP seems to smile on a time when gays faced physical violence as opposed to now, when you assert (erroneously) that there are laws against "stating your opinion on it.""

"There are no laws against "stating your opinion on" homosexuality. In fact, the SCOTUS just ruled that hateful speech is still protected by the 1st Amendment. Cui bono? Everyone benefits from a more equal and equitable society that…"

"I don't know any laws about "stating your opinion" - unless your opinion can only be stated in a way that is considered hate speech, and even then it gets murky. By comparison - there were very many laws about homosexuality and…"

"That gets to the general notion that there is no such thing as actual altruism anyway. If the end result is the same, I'm not opposed to them getting something out of it. "

"Unlikely - given the nature and type of the hacks (ransomware), but I certainly don't know that for sure. This seems more a technical glitch, since the rest of the site works, and would be sent from the same servers. "
