** In the first novel ''Casino Royale'', Bond is eight years away from compulsory retirement from '00' Section at 45. The remaining novels certainly take place over a period of more than eight years, making this a case of ComicBookTime too. Additionally, in ''Casino Royale'' Bond recalls facing off against enemy agents over a gaming table before the war. However, his obituary in ''You Only Live Twice'' indicates that he joined the secret service after leaving the Navy at the end of WorldWarTwo, and that he enlisted at the age of 20 or 21. Of course, the latter ''could'' be a [[WatsonianVersusDoylist falsified report]]....

* ''[[Film/TheSpyWhoLovedMe James Bond, The Spy Who Loved Me]]'' (1977) by Christopher Wood. Quite different from its source, it added characters and organizations from the Fleming novels to the plot.

** The tradition is continued in Gardner's eighties novels. Perhaps taken to the extreme with Wolfgang Weisen from ''Death is Forever'' who short of ''worships'' Josef Stalin.

* 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.
