The Spy Who Loved Me

Spy Vs Spybrary

Hey, remember when I took part in a podcast on Helen MacInnes? It turns out that once you've done one podcast, they just keep coming.

I suggested to Shane of Spybrary that he do an episode on James Bond continuation author John Gardner. His response was "Great idea, why don't you host it?"

The reason why not is that Gardner is my least favourite Bond author, his characterisation and dialogue make me cringe and I'm not comfortable with his depictions of women. But I did it anyway and managed to be reasonably diplomatic about it.

You can hear me chatting Gardner with Brian McKaig and Edward Biddulph here, or search for 'spybrary' wherever you source your podcast action.

I see he had an eventful career as a commando, priest and alcoholic before finding his true metier. Interesting guy!
Yes - amazing he doesn't write better stories!
