Agent 007

Ian Fleming
(28 May 1908 – 12 August 1964), While he had been working as an officer in British naval intelligence during the Second World War, he has also written many of spy novels.
   In 1952, for one of his story, he has created a fictional character revolved as James Bond (code number, 007), an intelligence officer in the Secret Intelligence Service, commonly known as MI6. This becomes one of the longest continually-running film series in history, having been in on-going production from 1962 to the present. In that time Eon Productions has produced 23 films, usually produced at Pinewood Studios. This has become second-highest-grossing film series (behind Harry Potter) and the single most successful adjusted for inflation.
   After Fleming's death, in 1981, thriller writer John Gardner picked up the series with Licence Renewed. Gardner went on to write sixteen Bond books in total; two of the books he wrote – Licence to Kill and GoldenEye – were novelizations of Eon Productions films of the same name. In 1996, Gardner retired from writing James Bond books due to ill health.
   In 1996, American author Raymond Benson became the author (until 2002) of the Bond novels. Benson had written six Bond novels, three novelizations (The World Is Not Enough, Tomorrow Never Dies & Die Another Day). After a gap of six years, Sebastian Faulks was commissioned by Ian Fleming Publications to write a new Bond novel, which was released on 28 May 2008, the 100th anniversary of Ian Fleming's birth.
  Later in 2009 American writer Jeffery Deaver was then commissioned by Ian Fleming Publications.
