Fan Phenomena: James Bond
Fan Phenomena: James Bond is a collection of short research articles exploring the devoted fanbase that has helped make Bond what he is, offering a serious but wholly accessible take on the many different ways that fans have approached, appreciated, and appropriated Bond over the sixty years of his existence from the pages of Ian Fleming’s novels to the screen.
Including analyses of Bond as a lifestyle icon, the Bond brand, Bond-inspired fan works, and the many versions of 007, the book reveals a fan culture that is vibrant, powerfully engaged, and richly aware of the history and complexity of the character of Bond and what he represents.
Fans that have contributed to this research book include Peter Lorenz (Bond collector and artwork creator), Raymond Benson (fourth official Bond author), Remmert van Braam (Bond Lifestyle) and David Mason (Anthony Sinclair).
The book is edited by Claire Hines, senior lecturer in film and television at Southampton Solent University in Southampton.
