Chapter 38: Ian Fleming, featuring Matt Gourley

Chapter 38: H.G. Wells (Paul F. Tompkins) welcomes the creator of James Bond himself, Ian Fleming (Matt Gourley) to the Dead Authors stage. Mr. Fleming is a troubled soul who only wants to be a monstrous misogynist. Is that so much to ask? Apparently so.

Thanks to The Time Travel Mart and 826LA. 

826 National is a nonprofit organization that provides strategic leadership, administration, and other resources to ensure the success of its network of eight writing and tutoring centers. 826 centers offer a variety of inventive programs that provide under-resourced students, ages 6-18, with opportunities to explore their creativity and improve their writing skills. We also aim to help teachers get their classes excited about writing. Our mission is based on the understanding that great leaps in learning can happen with one-on-one attention, and that strong writing skills are fundamental to future success. Last year our tutoring centers — located in Ann Arbor, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington, DC — served over 29,000 students.

  • Paul, I have been looking forward to this ever since Matt let it slip that he was going to do your show on a months-ago episode of James Bonding. While I'm downloading it now and haven't heard it yet, this is no doubt going to be wonderful! And thank you for posting the video preview on your Youtube letting us know when it would be released! Thanks "H.G."! And, as always, Jules Verne was a fool.
