Celluloid Stumper: Bond Week. James Bond Week.


Seeing as how it's T minus four days to Casino Royale, we'll be bringing you excerpts all week from The Book of Bond, a snappy, hard-to-find instruction manual from 1965 that promises to make "every man his own 007." And our weekly contest (which we'll tell you more about tomorrow) will call for new Bond-movie ideas, so get brainstorming! But first:

1. The book's author is purportedly "Lt.-Col. William ('Bill') Tanner." Without Googling: which well-known literary genius actually wrote the book under that nom de plume?

2. Who was the "real" Lt.-Col. William ('Bill') Tanner?
