- Keep Circulating the Tapes: For the longest time if you wanted a print edition, you had to track down a used copy. It's started to appear in print again in the past several years.
- What Could Have Been:
- The original plan for the continuation of the Bond books was that different writers would write them under the Robert Markham pseudonym.
- Amis was all for EON Productions making a movie of his book but the powers that be refused, possibly in revenge for Amis' public badmouthing of the films, especially during the Moore era. In later years aspects from the novel began to crop up: M's kidnap is used in The World Is Not Enough; Die Another Day features a character named Colonel Tan-Sun Moon, and Spectre reuses the novel's climactic torture scene, even having Blofeld repeat one of Sun's speeches verbatim.
