James Bond was a series of spy novels created by author Ian Fleming who wrote fourteen novels and short story collections between 1953 and 1966 (with the last two published posthumously). Following Fleming's death in 1964, a number of other authors have continued to write James Bond novels, some as novelisations of the later films. The release of the movie Dr No in 1962 saw the start of a movie legend that has spanned the decades, and at the time of creating this gallery, there have now been twenty-six films, some based on Fleming's original novels. This gallery is dedicated to the film-themed cover novels and movie novelisations (movie list at bottom of page). Not every film had a novelisation and most definitely a lot of the books did not have a film!
