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.

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.

"Thanks, but a built-in HIIT program (like Sprint 8) changes the machine's speed and elevation automatically as you move through the sprints and recovery intervals. That is what I am looking for (with the HIIT intervals timer). Thanks."

"I'm generally satisfied with air mattresses. The worst thing about them is packing them back up. Maybe it's because I'm only 5'9" and a buck-fifty."
