In Memoriam: Peter Janson-Smith

The members of The Ian Fleming ® Foundation wish to express our great sadness at the passing of Peter Janson-Smith, literary agent to Ian Fleming, on April 15, 2016, at the age of 93. After Fleming's death, Peter became the chairman of Glidrose Publications (now Ian Fleming® Publications Ltd.) and was directly responsible for hiring authors to write new Bond novels.

Peter was a staunch supporter of the IFF from its inception in 1992, and in recent years served as our Chairman of the Board. A sampling of the many online obituaries may be seen at the links below.
