* BroadStrokes: ** 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. ** While Benson's novels reference some of the elements from Gardner's ''Bond'' novels, he lefts out major things like how Bond was appointed be the leader of the Double-O section (and how before that it was disbanded for over a decade) and his RankUp to a Captain, and [[spoiler:his longtime relationship with Flicka, which ended with her death in ''COLD'']].

** 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 WorldWarTwo, and that he enlisted at the age of 20 or 21. Of course, the latter ''could'' be a [[WatsonianVersusDoylist falsified report]]....
