Others included 'beware people who smell' and 'tread carefully in the company of moustaches, sideburns and beards'. Ian Fleming, who used to be a spy himself, published You Only Live Twice in 1964.

    A notebook containing rules for 'how to live' that was written by James Bond creator Ian Fleming has emerged 60 years on.  The 007 creator filled his pocket notepad with ideas and observations while drafting his 11th Bond novel You Only Live Twice, which was published in 1962. Among his list of 13 rules was a warning to 'beware of motorcars with two women in the front seat'.  He took aim at the opposite sex in another instruction, warning: 'Don't waste your time on women who wear a bracelet on their left ankle.' And one piece of advice that would not be out of place in a Bond novel reads: 'Don't draw your gun unless you see both the other man's hands.' Others include 'beware people who smell' and 'tread carefully in the company of moustaches, side-burns and beards'. The 39-page notebook, with writing in blue and black ink, is going under the hammer with Heritage Auctions, of Dallas, Texas. It has been consigned by a private collector and is tipped to sell for £17,000. ($20,000). A notebook containing rules...

    The dastardly supervillain's secret underground lair is a key part of many James Bond stories. But it seems these subterranean complexes were not just the fantastical product of author Ian Fleming's imagination. As cinemas prepare for the delayed premiere of latest Bond film No Time To Die, newly-released papers have revealed details of Fleming's work with a real-life hidden city – in a genuine plot to save civilisation from evil. The long-classified government documents relate to his plan for a labyrinthine network of 30 miles of tunnels inside the Rock of Gibraltar during the Second World War. Fleming recruited six men for a remarkable mission – in which they were to be walled inside a hidden room deep inside the Rock, with supplies to survive for up to seven years in the event the Nazis conquered Gibraltar. From secret viewpoints in the east and west faces of the Rock, the Britons would have spied on German naval movements between the Mediterranean and Atlantic. They would then have used a radio powered by a bicycle – with a leather chain to...
    New trailer for ‘No time to die’ James Bond in 50 anecdotes After eight novels chronicling the adventures of James Bond, Ian Fleming wanted to be taken seriously. And for that James Bond had to die. The problem is that the shot backfired. Because he tried to kill him without giving him up, and of course, that way it is not possible to kill anyone. Instead of killing him – who after all did not want to give up the goose that laid the golden eggs, not to mention the fact that his editor would not have let him do it – he decided to reduce the character to its minimum expression, reduce its prominence and completely override your voice in the plot. And do you know what? In the end who died was his substitute, because Ian Fleming had thought of a substitute. And that substitute, well, did not reach the film adaptation and, therefore, has not passed into the collective imagination. Now that there is speculation about the death of James Bond in the latest installment...
