GF is good if a little all over the place.
Moonraker is my personal favourite of the lot - it's also the very first one I ever read, too!
Indeed. it's still Fleming, so still better than a lot of what came after in terms of the Continuation.
Yeah, I've never bought the line about it being heavily edited after Fleming's death. It's got an identical feel to his other stuff. It's a fitting ending for the literary character in my opinion, with him getting wounded in the Scaramanga duel. I feel like, if he hung up his Walther after that, it'd be alright. I've not been much for the followup novels. Colonel Sun is fantastic and, I'll say, better than almost half the Fleming novels. It's all downhill from there. Benson gave it a good shot but I think I only like his mainly because it's Benson and he's just a fantastic writer. Haven't been a fan of the others. DMC was okay but it was way overhyped.
Yes, I have an upcoming article on the blog that makes the case for its having been entirely written by Fleming.
