Through extensive interviews with GoldenEye’s creators, writer and scholar Alyse Knorr traces the story of how this unlikely licensed game reinvigorated a franchise and a genre.

  • A new cover drawn by illustrator Mel Tow and designed by Cory Schmitz.
  • Pages of drawings, photos, and design docs that take you behind the scenes from the development of GoldenEye 007.
  • An additional chapter, "The Shots Heard Round the World," that goes deep into the story of how Graeme Norgate and Grant Kirkhope created GoldenEye's iconic soundtrack, and how Norgate and Martin Hollis tweaked the game's sound effects to make them shine.
