Ian Fleming

a.k.a. Ian Lancaster Fleming

Author Code: EILF

Born: May 28, 1908 - Mayfair, London, England

Died: Aug. 12, 1964 - Canterbury, Kent, England

Educated at Eton College and the Royal Military College at Sandhurst, Fleming left the latter without receiving his commission when he contracted gonorrhea. He then went to Austria and studied at Tennerhof before continuing at Munich University and the University of Geneva. He failed the entrance exam for the Foreign Office in 1931 and was subsequently, with the aid of his mother, given a job as a sub-editor with Reuters. He spent time in Russia in 1933 and then joined the banking firm Cull & Co. In 1935, he joined Rowe and Pitman in the City as a stockbroker. Prior to the start of the Second World War in 1939, Fleming was appointed personal assistant to the Director of Naval Intelligence, Rear Admiral John Godfrey and Fleming did not disappoint. He invented numerous schemes for use against the Axis. In 1942, he was responsible for setting up No. 30 Commando, an assault unit. Although Fleming never fought directly in the war, he was responsible for the selection of actions for the unit. He visited the United States and worked with Colonel Donovan, head of the OSS, later CIA. Throughout the remainder of the war, Fleming undertook a variety of duties and intelligence gathering, much of which would be used in his subsequent writing. Following the war, he built a house (Goldeneye) on Jamaica where he would produce most of his work. In 1953, he published Casino Royale, the first of the many successful James Bond novels. The book was a huge success. In all, Fleming produced twelve Bond novels, two of which were published posthumously. He also produced two short story collections and some articles in magazines such as Argosy and Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, not to mention his only work for children, Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang (1964 Posthumous). All of the James Bond novels have been made into films. Fleming died of a heart attack at his hotel in Canterbury. His other works include Live and Let Die (1954), Moonraker (1955), Diamonds Are Forever (1956), From Russia With Love (1957), The Diamond Smugglers (1957), Dr. No (1958), Goldfinger (1959), For Your Eyes Only (1960), Thunderball (1961), The Spy Who Loved Me (1962), On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1963), Thrilling Cities (1963), You Only Live Twice (1964), The Man With the Golden Gun (1965 Posthumous) and Octopussy and the Living Daylights (1966 Posthumous).
