Interesting. Hadn't heard of these. Now my curiosity is piqued.

If I'm reading these listings correctly (my Dutch is a bit rusty), there was a 96-page adaptation of "Octopussy" and a 176-page adaptation of AVTAK. Unlike the pastiches of the early Roger Moore movies published in the Daily Express back in the 70's, these appear to have been major projects. They're probably pretty hard to find today. I've never seen one of these on an internet auction site. Thanks for bringing them to our attention.

For A View to a Kill, the novel is 79 page. The rest of the book is bonus : the author gives details about the movie, actors (Roger Moore,Tanya Roberts, Grace Jones, Christopher Walken, Patrick Mcnee,Fiona Fullerton,David Yip, lois Maxwell, Desmond llewlyn, Robert Brown and Walter Goteel), production and James Bond (the origin of its name), Ian Fleming. There are also interviews with the actors (Roger Moore, Tanya Roberts,Grace Jones, and Christopher Walken).
There has also 30 black and white pictures.
