Bringing together all of the James Bond short stories in one volume for the first time, this is the ultimate celebration of suave and deadly secret agent 007. Whether he’s making an unexpected discovery in the Bahamas, hunting down a Cuban hit man in wild country, smashing an international drug ring in Rome, or on the trail of a murderous assassin in Berlin’s sniper alley, dangerous missions and beautiful women come with the job for James Bond. And this agent is always a consummate professional.

Many of Ian Fleming’s short stories have inspired the extremely successful James Bond films, and included in this collection are “From a View to a Kill,” “For Your Eyes Only,” “Quantum of Solace,” “Risico,” “The Hildebrand Rarity,” “Octopussy,” “The Property of a Lady,” “The Living Daylights,” and “007 in New York.”

This collection’s title story, “Quantum of Solace,” lends its name to the 2008 James Bond film starring Daniel Craig.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Urban savagery…smooth tale spinning.”

    New York Herald Tribune

  • “Mr. Fleming’s licensed assassin is in good form…Few men can have been able to mix business with pleasure so successfully as Bond.” 

    Times Literary Supplement (London)

  • “This complete collection of 007 stories is made especially captivating by the talents of Simon Vance, whose cool, subdued and slightly removed narration is spot on, recalling Sean Connery’s interpretation of the role. So arresting is Vance’s performance that…his telling of the riveting tales come through as keenly as a well-aimed shot from a Walther PPK.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Master criminals, beautiful damsels in distress, and plenty of action—essentially everything fans have come to associate with 007…Fun reads—great beach books—and the character is still immensely popular on screen, so these are well worth having.”

    Library Journal

  • “Admirers of Bond will find him in top form.”

    " I was looking for a diversion from my regular books. This did the trick. Kind of fun and entertaining. "

    " Again, a neat view at Bond. "

    " It is interesting to see the correlation between the short stories and the films, mostly the Moore/Bond films. How For Your Eyes Only is the combination of three stories where Octopussy, Quantum of Solace and A View to A Kill share little more than titles. The shorter works are largely exposition with glimpses of typical Fleming/Bond action. A curio for fans such as myself, but at times a bit lacking in substance. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Michael | 2/1/2014

    " A collection of all the James Bond short stories...no James Bond collection is complete without it. "
