Duns On Bond is an omnibus edition of two short ebooks by Jeremy Duns: Rogue Royale and Diamonds In The Rough. Both are also individually available for the Kindle. Rogue Royale: In the mid-Sixties, the James Bond films became a global phenomenon as the world thrilled to their spectacular action sequences and cool gadgets. But the films nearly went in a very different direction, with a much darker treatment of Ian Fleming’s first novel by Hollywood’s most acclaimed screenwriter. In this Kindle Single, journalist and spy novelist Jeremy Duns unearths Ben Hecht’s drafts of Casino Royale. Rogue Royale is around 11,000 words long, and builds on his ground-breaking 3,400-word article published in The Sunday Telegraph.
Diamonds In The Rough: So much has been written about James Bond that it seems scarcely imaginable there is any more territory to mine. But in Diamonds In The Rough, Jeremy Duns shares the fruits of several years of research into unexplored aspects of Ian Fleming and his universe, from lost novels and screenplays to hidden inspirations. This short ebook collects articles previously published in The Sunday Times, The Sunday Telegraph and elsewhere. It features six articles:
Gold Dust: The secret history of the lost Bond novel Per Fine Ounce.
Uncut Gem: Uncovering the attempts to film The Diamond Smugglers.
Commando Bond: James Bond's relationship to special forces history.
Black Tie Spy: The MI6 operation that inspired the pretitles scene in Goldfinger.
Smersh vs Smersh: Comparing Fleming's sinister organisation to the real thing.
Bourne Yesterday: The roots of an unusual premise, from You Only Live Twice to wartime thrillers and beyond.
