Perhaps we could try, setting an idea for some short stories, don't have to
Be long, but what about a short Bond Christmas story ?

Re: NEED TO KNOW - A collection of short stories.

Thanks everyone. I for one would like to see other members take on JB in the form of short stories.

Meanwhile the old cogs are turning. I am formulating the plot line for 'An Ungentlemanly Act' but am unsure where to set it. It's either going to be New York or Spain. I'm leaning towards the latter given the storyline. Wherever the action takes place I have already written a short passage where Bond meets a rather forward lady by the name of 'Annie Malle'!

Re: NEED TO KNOW - A collection of short stories.

Oh & BTW the story is pre CR so will feature Bonds much loved Beretta.

Here's one in action:

A poor choice of weapon on Bonds part.

It's not what you've got, but how you use it !  ajb007/biggrin

61

Re: NEED TO KNOW - A collection of short stories.

And, as with other things, you've got to get real close up & personal for it to have any effect!

Re: NEED TO KNOW - A collection of short stories.

The next short story is intended to remain within Ian Flemings time frame for Bond. I wanted to place him in a period of his career which has not been explored. As a consequence it is set in 1942 & sees a twenty eight year old Bond battling a ruthless enemy. Part one is almost complete & I hope you will enjoy reading it.

Hopefully 'AN UNGENTLEMANLY ACT' will be ready for posting within the next couple of days.

Re: NEED TO KNOW - A collection of short stories.

I look forward to it  ajb007/martini

Indeed, anything about James Bond and WWII already has my interest.

Re: NEED TO KNOW - A collection of short stories.

Thanks everyone. In contrast to my last effort which was written off the cuff, I have done some plot lining with this one. I have a couple of endings but not sure which one to use yet. All I will say is you can expect a lot of ungentlemanly behaviour in 'An Ungentlemanly Act'!

Also, given the period in which it's set I have taken the liberty to post photos of some of things (& a person) who will feature just so that those who aren't familiar with the various guns, vehicles etc will know what they look like.

Opps, it would appear the postimage site is down. I will post as soon as I am able.

And finally someone who bears more than a passing resemblance to the film star Veronica Lake makes an appearance.

Know her.  ajb007/biggrin

Re: NEED TO KNOW - A collection of short stories.

That's why I thought it prudent to post a photo.

I think Jessica Rabbit was also modelled on her.  ajb007/wink

Re: NEED TO KNOW - A collection of short stories.

I didn't know that. I have referenced much about Bond from Silhouette Mans excellent 'The Bondologist' blog & I thoroughly recommend it to anyone who has in interest in JB. Here's a link.

Meanwhile I hope to post the first part of 'An Ungentlemanly Act' sometime tomorrow. I hope you all will enjoy.
