Jonathan Cape First Edition 1977
First Edition novel book of the film. Ex Library
In 1977 the new James Bond film starring Roger Moore was the second in the stable to have a completely new storyline and in this case a set of new villains not conceived by Ian Fleming. Fleming’s orignal novel was not percieved as blockbuster material, Christopher Wood was contracted to write the screenplay together with Bond regular Richard Maibaum. Christopher Wood also took the opportunity in writing the book of the film that was so different to the Fleming original. Christopher Wood published this book managing to capture Fleming’s essence and setting Bond in the modern world amongst the Science Fiction plot that he and Maibaum conceived. The hardback versions of these books were published in limited numbers with only a first edition run and most were taken in by libraries across the UK, consequently they are increasingly hard to find.
