THE BOND THAT GOT AWAY
THE FILM, THE MEN, THE GIRLS, AND THE VILLAINS THAT GOT AWAY

SCROLL

CELEBRATING BOND, JAMES BOND

With James Bond preparing for the 25th film in a franchise that has spanned more than five decades, the legendary superhero has left us with countless Bonds, girls, villains, gadgets, adventures, locations and more.  In addition, even the best of fans may not realize that the first Bond film, Dr. No was not the intended debut feature.  To celebrate the legacy, the franchise and the stars we take a look back at 007 with the new book, The Bond That Got Away.

 

With a print and standard ebook on Amazon.com, and an iTunes enhanced edition the book includes the story behind the lost Bond film, Longitude 78 West and how the series would transition to Dr. No in 1962. In addition, other chapters covers the Bond girls that got away, the villains who were almost cast, the music that never was and more. Including photos and rare details we celebrate all things Bond as the series prepares for a new installment.  The enhanced digital edition available from iTunes iBooks also includes audio.

PUBLISHING BOOKS THAT ENTERTAIN AND EDUCATE SINCE 1998

Back in 1998 we started off with one book and an idea. While many big publishers were abandoning the world of film history, afraid to take a chance on smaller titles that might not reach mass market sales, and uncertain of the future book business with the burgeoning digital web content and coming ebook market, we saw it as an opportunity.  With focus on small press runs, print on demand, and digital books, we published our first book, Curse of the Silver Screen in 1999.  We then added a series of print on demand "Trivia Challenges" like The Bates Motel Trivia Challenge, The Supremes Trivia Challenge, The Elvis Trivia Challenge, and The Gilligan's Island Trivia Challenge. In 2000, our next book, Disaster in the Sky, gave us a chance to test  print on demand for books.

We learned a lot and every success gave us a chance to build and expand our model. In 2004 we delivered Reel Horror in print and ebook, as well as on audio. In 2008 we on-demand published Irwin Allen: The Disaster Years and Disaster on Film.  In 2010 Alfred Hitchcock: The Icon Years was released in print, ebook and our first enhanced ebook, and earned our first book award for best non-fiction title in a readers favorites competition. In 2012 our biggest hit What Ever Happened to Mommie Dearest was released.  In 2014 Who Nuked the Duke? won the San Francisco Book Festival for best general non-fiction, and in 2016 our book Movie Star & the Mobster was named best general non-fiction in the New York, Hollywood, and London Book Festivals. In 2018 our iTunes Podcast series on classic movies celebrated its 10th anniversary.
