    A very Merry “spy” Christmas to Tanner. Thanks for all of your hard work in making this one of the best spy media blogs. I’m also honipg for the “Bond on Set” book along with the “Music of James Bond” under the tree, but so far my spying has yielded maybe one of them. But as they say at the end of the movies, “James Bond will return”.Again Tanner, thanks for all of your work and effort. It has been a great year in the spy media this year with Skyfall at the top.
