              Ian Fleming's James Bond character has entertained motion picture audiences for nearly sixty years, and the filmmakers have come a long way since they spent $1 million producing the very first James Bond movie, Dr. No, in 1962. The 2015 Bond title, Spectre, cost $250 million and ...grossed $881 million worldwide--and 2020's No Time to Die is certain to become another global blockbuster. The James Bond Movie Encyclopediais the completely up-to-date edition of author Steven Jay Rubin's seminal work on the James Bond film series. It covers the entire series through No Time to Die. Packed with behind-the-scenes information based on interviews with the cast and filmmakers, fascinating facts, trivia, bloopers, classic quotes, character bios, and cast and filmmaker bios, it showcases the type of exhaustive research that has been a hallmark of Rubin's work in film history. It also features hundreds of rare and unusual still photographs of the participants both in front of and behind the camera.

              The powers-that-be in auto racing in the 1920s, namely the American Automobile Association's Contest Board, prohibited everyone who wasn't a white male from the sport. Dewey Gaston, a black man who went by the name Rajo Jack, broke into the epicenter of racing in California, refu...sing to let the pervasive racism of his day stop him from competing against entire fields of white drivers. Though Rajo Jack spent his whole life striving to reach the pinnacle of the sport, the Indianapolis 500, the greatest race in the world wouldn't have him. In The Brown Bullet, Bill Poehler uncovers the life of a long-forgotten trailblazer and the great lengths he took to even get on the track, and in the end, tells how Rajo Jack proved to a generation that a black man could compete with some of the greatest white drivers of his era, wining some of the biggest races of the day.

              This fast-paced mystery is set in the otherworldly Galapagos Islands in 1938 during the lead-up to World War II. A fugitive New York City cop is on the run from both the law and the mafia after killing a local thug. Trying to make his escape in a boat he stole from his uncle, cas...taway Fred Freiman, a German American, comes ashore on the islands and stumbles upon the body of a beautiful, enigmatic German baroness with a hatchet in her head. The next day the baroness's two strange companions are also found murdered. Freiman soon finds himself trapped into tracking down the murderer, or murderers, by a corrupt local official. International politics, local intrigues, and personal passions swirl around Fred as he learns more about the murdered woman, who some describe as a monster and others a lost soul. Early in the investigation Freiman meets Ana de Guzman, a young, wealthy Ecuadorian woman who teams up with him to unravel the tangled mysteries. As he struggles to solve the murders, Freiman puzzles over the baroness's shady past and begins to wonder: Do sirens sing intentionally to trap sailors, or do they sing because it is their nature to sing?
