The Alternative James Bond Blog - for more in-depth, lengthier articles on the world of James Bond 007

Why do we need yet another James Bond blog you may ask yourself?

The answer is because we need space for the lengthier, more in-depth articles, essays, polemics, dissertations and monographs that will be provided by Brokenclaw throughout 2013 and beyond!

Hello and welcome to the new James Bond blog experience!

This is the first post on my brand new blog, The Alternative James Bond Blog, and there will be some very special content uploaded onto the blog over the coming year 2013. Nobody wants to read yet another summary of the gadgets in the Aston Martin DB5 from Goldfinger (1964) and so this new James Bond blog devotes itself wholeheartedly to the study of the more esoteric, overlooked and therefore alternative areas of the literary and cinematic James Bond - the areas where little ink has been spilt. By focusing on these particular areas, The Alternative James Bond Blog hopes to illuminate the darkest recesses of the James Bond character and his adventures in print and in film. Stay turned...the wait will be worth it!
