Ian Lancaster Fleming was an English author, journalist and naval intelligence officer who is best known for his James Bond series of spy novels. William Cook in the New Statesman considered James Bond to be "the culmination of an important but much-maligned tradition in English literature. As a boy, Fleming devoured the Bulldog Drummond tales of Lieutenant Colonel H. C. McNeile and the Richard Hannay stories of John Buchan. His genius was to repackage these antiquated adventures to fit the fashion of postwar Britain... In Bond, he created a Bulldog Drummond for the jet age." On Her Majesty's Secret Service continues the saga of Ernst Stavro Blofeld which began in Thunderball. Secret Service agent James Bond, operative 007, is in the midst of "Operation Bedlam," hunting for Blofeld after his criminal agency gained control of two nuclear devices the year before and threatened the existence of the western world. Following a year of frustrated leads, Bond doubts SPECTRE still exists, but MI6 won't allow him to abandon the search. Finally, Bond begins to write his letter of resignation. His voice is no longer being acknowledged by his superiors. On Her Majesty's Secret Service was adapted as a daily comic strip published in the Daily Express newspaper, and syndicated worldwide. It was also adapted into the sixth film in the Eon Productions series in 1969. It starred George Lazenby in his only appearance of the Bond role.
