As I have argued elsewhere (Goodwin and Hughes 2011) while biographical methods may be underpinned, to some extent, by a naive realism – that biographies, life stories and letters are based in and reflect some kind of reality (Roberts 2002), or as Stanley (2004) argues, ‘ultimately letters matter because they are concerned with real lives’ (Stanley 2004: 223), other authors, such as Elias (2001), allow us to view biographies, letters and so forth not as ‘static’ objects but instead as ‘processes’ highlighting relationships past, present and (possible) future and which refer to changing balances of power and changing interdependencies.

In between these dates, he was surely, as Isaac Asimov says, "the first writer to specialize in science fiction and to make a living at it, too."

He reviewed Diamonds Are Forever in the Sunday Times, providing the kind of serious criticism he wanted himself, and in 1956, in a letter to Fleming, Chandler said, ‘I did not think that I did quite do you justice in my review of your book, because anyone who writes as dashingly as you ought, I think, to try for a little higher grade.” This mix of praise and criticism from the elder writer invigorated Fleming, who promptly redoubled his efforts in Bondcraft.
