Description:
James Bond and Moonraker is a novelization by Christopher Wood of the James Bond movie Moonraker. Its name was changed to avoid confusion with Fleming's novel. It was released in 1979.

The screenplay of Moonraker differed so much from Ian Fleming's novel that EON Productions and Glidrose Publications authorized the film's screenwriter, Christopher Wood to write novelisation based upon the film, as he had done for The Spy Who Loved Me.

Unlike Wood's first novelization, which showed a significant difference to the actual film, in James Bond and Moonraker, Wood writes a virtually direct novelization of the screenplay. The only noticeable differences between the novelization and the screenplay for Moonraker is that there is no mention of Dolly, Jaws' girlfriend, and his characterization stays true to Wood's description as being a mute. In addition, at the conclusion of the Venetian canal chase sequence, Bond's gondola does not sprout a flotation device and ascend to St. Mark's square as it does in the film.

After the release of the novel, Glidrose Productions chose not to commission novelizations of the next few Bond films; the next film to be novelized would be Licence to Kill ten years later in 1989, owing to it not having been based on an original Fleming novel.
