Advanced technologies or ‘revolutionary’ technological systems are often deemed controversial, risky or ambivalent. Diverging interpretations clash when their places of development or use are turned into heritage sites through practices of remembrance or museumization.
In his seminal study No Accident, Comrade (2011),Steven Belletto draws a distinction between fictions which are about the Cold War and fictions that are of the Cold War. What is meant by the former is clear enough: these are fictions which are written or set during the Cold War period and which engage thematically with it. The latter, however, is a more fluid category whose implications can be theorized further.

James Bond (007) is a global brand: since his ‘birth’ in 1953 he’s evolved into a popular cultural icon. Irrespective of the occasional reports of his demise since the end of the Cold War the Bond franchise surges on with new films and continuation novels. While Bond appears to be a quintessentially British creation, his Cold War adventures unfolded across a global stage and the associated books, comics, films and subsequent videogames have established a genuinely transnational legacy.
