* ComicbookTime: First occurred pretty early. In Fleming's books, Bond was perpetually between 35 and 40 across thirteen years of publication, and his birth date was shuffled along slightly. Since the ''Bond'' novels are (excepting the Faulks - Boyd - Horowitz standalones and the Deaver reboot) set in the time of their writing, the references to Fleming's works by later writers embraced this heavily. Otherwise references to Bond's adventures from the fifties and sixties would make him over eighty years old by Benson's last novel, which was written in 2002.

* ComicbookTime: Since the ''Bond'' novels are mostly set in the time of their writing, the references to Fleming's works by later writers are usually this. Otherwise references to Bond's adventures from the fifties and sixties would make him over seventy or eighty years old in Benson's novels, which were written in late nineties and early 2000s.

* ContinuitySnarl: John Gardner fitted his film novelizations into the continuity of his continuing series, which led to some unavoidable oddities when he attempted to reconcile ''Film/LicenceToKill'', despite being a loose adaptation of ''Live and Let Die'', ''The Hildebrand Rarity'', and ''The Man with the Golden Gun'' stories. The result includes such ridiculousness as Felix Leiter getting fed to a shark ''twice'', and the unexplainable reappearance of Milton Krest.

The result includes such ridiculousness as Felix Leiter getting fed to a shark ''twice'', ''twice'' in his lifetime (this time, the shark eats his prosthetic and the villains don't notice), and the unexplainable (and so, unexplained) reappearance of Milton Krest.

* ''The Moneypenny Diaries'' -- By Samantha Weinberg, the series features the story of Miss Jane Moneypenny, a supporting character. The stories fit in between some of the original Fleming novels, and offer background and character development to the title character, as well as filling in the blanks of certain eras of Bond's life.

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: The Bond of ''Casino Royale'' is a far more realistic, gritty flawed character than the one shown in the latter books. In turn, the films took the post-''Casino Royale'' character and inflated his traits into the James Bond popularly known today.

The Bond of the books is a much different character than the one in the films, which often parodied or even disregarded their sources. Given that Fleming was born in 1908, and wrote the novels in the [[TheFifties 1950s]] and [[TheSixties 1960s]], [[ValuesDissonance his books do not always display the most politically correct attitudes with regard to sex, race, and imperialism]].
