Added DiffLines:

* {{Novelization}}: Written by screenwriter Christopher Wood, it adds SMERSH and some original Fleming characters to the plot. It was the first Bond novel released since ''Literature/ColonelSun'', and is (perhaps surprisingly for a novelization) well-regarded, often appearing as a dark-horse candidate on polls of the best post-Fleming novels. On the cover, it was re-titled ''James Bond, The Spy Who Loved Me'' to avoid confusion with ''Literature/TheSpyWhoLovedMe''.

* AllThereInTheManual: The novelization gives Jaws a backstory. His real name is Zbigniew Krycsiwiki, born in Poland, the product of a union between the strong man of a travelling circus and the Chief Wardress at the Women’s Prison in Cracow. The relationship and subsequent marriage had been a stormy one and, when it broke up, the young Zbigniew stayed with his mother and attended school and subsequently university in Cracow. He grew to a prodigious height but in temperament he followed his father and was surly and uncooperative, given to sudden outbreaks of violent temper. Because of his size he commanded a place in the university basketball team, but he was sluggish of reaction and his lack of speed was constantly exposed by more skilful but less physically endowed players. After a failed attempt at a basketball career, Krycsiwiki was arrested by the secret police for having taken part in the (fictitious) "1972 bread riots". While he was imprisoned, the police "beat him with hollow steel clubs encased in thick leather" until they thought he was dead, leaving his jaw broken beyond repair. Krycsiwiki later escaped and stowed aboard one of Stromberg's vessels. Eventually he was caught, but instead of turning him in, Stromberg hired a prestigious doctor to create an artificial jaw. After 14 operations Krycsiwiki's jaw was restored using steel components that created two rows of terrifying razor-sharp teeth, although Jaws was left mute.
