Ian Fleming Publications:

"November 2021 saw the passing of our long-time author, collaborator and friend John Pearson.   He died at the grand age of 91, leaving behind a proud body of work including his defining biographies of both Ian Fleming and James Bond.   As recently as 2020 he published Ian Fleming: The Notes in partnership with Queen Anne Press.   We enjoyed a decades-long partnership with John and will remember him fondly when we revisit and enjoy his wonderful writing."
