Raymond Benson was in Conroe, TX today with his presentation "Raymond Benson - James Bond Phenomenon" so I took the opportunity and drove down to meet him.

good art work
Doublshot is good, but The Facts of Death has the look of 007 exotica about it that appeals to me.
Did Benson have anything interesting to say? What was the presentation about?

I had the opportunity to talk with Raymond Benson several years ago. He's an engaging conversationalist and a true Bond fan. I recall the evening with great fondness.
