Licence Expired: The Unauthorized James Bond
Absolutely loved this book of James Bond short stories. Since it’s not canon, it takes so much…license, with the character and the series. There’s a Bond/Cthulu mashup, Bond as a teenager at Eton, a couple with Bond as a retired 90-year-old, etc. It was such a fresh look at aspects of Bond that have never been examined before.
This is not for everyone, clearly. But keep an open mind and enjoy it as the entertaining diversion that it is.
