Book Preview: 'The World of GoldenEye', by Nicolás Suszczyk

As the silver anniversary of GoldenEye is around the corner, Nicolás Suszczyk, co-editor of this site, gives you a unique tribute to the 17th James Bond film. Set for June 8, 2019, the 25th anniversary of the day where Brosnan was officially announced as the fifth James Bond actor in London, the book will cover the generational impact of the 1995 film and the huge success of its many official and unofficial video game adaptations, starting with 1997’s GoldenEye 007 for Nintendo 64. At the same time, the filmmaking process of the film and the relation of the story with many historical events as the Cold War, the betrayal of the Cossacks at Lienz in World War II and the 1991 coup against Mikhail Gorbachov will be thoroughly covered.

GoldenEye was much more than the debut of Pierce Brosnan in the role of James Bond. It was the film that saved the series after facing six years of an uncertain future, and the title is now a popular legend among gamers thanks to the huge success of the Nintendo 64 video game adaptation. In the eve of its 25th anniversary in 2020, this book offers a comprehensive analysis on one of the best Bond films ever released and the impact in popular culture that brought a new generation of Bond fans, in a craze that was very reminiscent to the waves of Bond mania from the 1960s. The creative process behind the film, the emergence of a relatively unknown international cast, and the influence of the Cold War in the story are just some of the themes this comprehensive analysis of the 1995 film will address to prove GoldenEye is, many times, an overlooked classic.
The book is set to be released on June 8, 2019, by Amazon Publishing, to coincide with the 25th anniversary of Pierce Brosnan's announcement as James Bond. Print and ebook versions will be available.

Nicolás Suszczyk has been a James Bond fan since the day he first watched GoldenEye, aged 7, on his native Buenos Aires. A freelance writer, he has contributed for many Bond and movies related web sites and publications like MI6 Confidential and Le Bond, from the French 007 Fan Club. In 2011, he founded The GoldenEye Dossier, a tribute for his favourite James Bond film, which is set for a major update in 2020. He also manages Bond En Argentina, a site dedicated to the releases of Ian Fleming's fictional hero in his country, and co-admins The Secret Agent Lair, a blog dedicated to the fictional spies of cinema and literature, with Jack Walter Christian. The World of GoldenEye is his first book.

The book will be primarily promoted on The GoldenEye Dossier's Twitter account (@gedossier007), the official hashtag to be used is #GoldenEyeWorld.
