This is a collection of the twelve Ian Fleming James Bond novels and two collections of short stories. Having them as a collected good topic is a long-time goal of the WP:BOND project. All the relevant books have reached GA status and the main article—List of James Bond novels and stories has recently reached FL status. - SchroCat (^@) 19:35, 29 January 2012 (UTC)

  • Support Let's hope no one complains about the scope of this topic! igordebraga 14:40, 31 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Support - Seems cohesive. Is this going to be part of a broader topic in the future? I'd be interested in seeing how such a thing would be structured (this as a subtopic with everything else as articles, or other smaller topics to group the "continuation" stuff, etc?).

  • Support - however the book report has one start class article Inspirations for James Bond. Jim Sweeney (talk) 19:26, 5 February 2012 (UTC)
    • Inspirations for James Bond is at GA review now, and dosen't really fit into the topic anyways. Sven Manguard Wha? 20:27, 5 February 2012 (UTC)
      • I put "Inspirations" into the Books report as it fits in well and is related, but is not part of the GT process. The nomination process page does allow for this ("sometimes a book covering a wider scope than the topic will be appropriate"). As Sven has pointed out, the article is currently GA nominated and awaiting a reviewer to pick it up. - SchroCat (^@) 09:06, 6 February 2012 (UTC)
      • "Inspirations" is now a GA: the book report should update shortly. - SchroCat (^@) 10:12, 16 February 2012 (UTC)
  • Support -- I reviewed a few of these novel articles and and was impressed with them not just on an individual basis but with the consistency betwen them -- perhaps not that surprising seeing as it was pretty well a one-man band putting them together, but I also noted more than once that when I picked up on a style or structural point in one article, Schro made a habit of making similar changes to the others to ensure that consistency. Well done! Cheers, Ian Rose (talk) 23:53, 6 February 2012 (UTC)
  • Support -- great effort. Hawkeye7 (talk) 19:51, 12 February 2012 (UTC)
  • Support sweet. Nergaal (talk) 14:49, 23 February 2012 (UTC)
  • Support Although I would rework the book into including the other James Bond novels (this has no effect on the validity of the topic IMO, I just think that the book ought to be slightly larger than the topic). Also, I just cleaned up these articles with my scripts and I think I ought to mention to whoever wrote them that |accessdate= should only be used when URLs are present (long version), as several of those were present.

    • Thanks for the clean up - and the note about the accessdate—a fault of mine, I'm afraid: I tend to drop it into everything by habit. In terms of the book, adding the other novels would mean adding an extra 33 articles to it (plus possibly the 5 Young Bond and 3 Monneypenny books), plus the article about uncollected short stories. Wouldn't that make it too bloated to be reasonably useful? Cheers - SchroCat (^@) 09:05, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
      • Maybe it'd be best as another book then, but 30-40+ articles more isn't unheard of. Compare with say Book:Canada or Book:AC/DC. Headbomb {talk / contribs / physics / books} 18:13, 29 February 2012 (UTC)
        • OK - I'll drop in the others shortly. I was thinking of doing a couple of topics with the other bits, but I think that's probably a bridge too far, so I'll beef up this books shortly. Thanks very much - SchroCat (^@) 23:02, 29 February 2012 (UTC)
          • Other Bond novels now added to the book. - SchroCat (^@) 09:02, 1 March 2012 (UTC)
