Dan and Tom of, had the privilege of examining 11 of Ian Fleming’s original James Bond manuscripts – his actual typed pages, with hand-written edits in the margins, crossed-out sections, add-ins and more!  You can see where he changes a name we all know, and then – there it is in the final published version of the novel!

Come with us to The Lilly Library at Indiana University in the USA, as we examine in-person all of these wonderful James Bond masterpieces, gaining some insight into the novels and into Ian Fleming’s way of writing!  This is Part two, covering Dr. No to Live and Let Die of a 2-part series!  Be sure to listen to Part 1 as well!
