Never Say Die - (James Bond 007) Short Story Collection

"For James Bond, British secret agent 007, international espionage isn't everything.  Whether it is tracking down an old nemesis in Johannesburg, making love to a Russian catwalk model with a deadly secret, or coming to grips with his own heartbreaking past, Bond exceeds expectations in his own unforgiving style."  


While I've been busy writing my first novel these last months, I thought it would still be good practice to turn out some Bond short stories for feedback and to keep an audience in mind.  This is a small collection of seven stories set in the Fleming world of James Bond, taking place between 1931 and 1968.  I have written this with his style of focus, trying to emulate the author as best as I possibly can in narrative tone and research.  I hope you enjoy the read.

Kindest regards,

J. A. Stapleton.
