“A little reckless bravery may end up saving your life.”
Henry Chancellor, The Forgotten Echo

“Sir Henry fixed him with a keen eye.
'Odd name, Tom Skatt - eh?'
'Thats right'
'You don't think we could be related?'
Tom looked up at his great-great-great-uncle and smiled.
'I don't think so'
'No,' grinned Sir Henry "no, of course not”
Henry Chancellor, The Museum's Secret

“Ian Fleming may have been very practical about writing James Bond, but at heart he was a romantic. He ... was tapping directly into a deep wellspring of his own imagination, which he laced with the usual blend of sex, travel, culinary detail and fine living that encapsulated the aspirations of the age, and was absolutely an expression of Fleming himself. He may have dismissed his creation as idle fantasy, but he was entirely serious about the world he had created .... Ian Fleming could not put any clear water between himself and his fiction because he was living his work as he wrote it .... To discover the origins of James Bond one has to begin by exploring the deep streams that fed the well of Fleming's imagination, and his own complicated personality.”
Henry Chancellor, James Bond: The Man And His World: The Official Companion To Ian Fleming's Creation
