Re: Err, hang on a minute ...
Yes, Obviously Ian Fleming was paid to create Bond.
His brother though was probably a spy and reading his factual books the question that's in my mind is why was he there if he wasn't a spy.
" Peter and his brother Ian were commissioned by Colin Gubbins to help establish the Auxiliary Units. This was to be the "secret army" of civilian volunteers that would fight on, behind enemy lines, as part of the British anti-invasion preparations of World War II. [Peter ?] Fleming later served in Norway and Greece; his principal service, however, from 1942 to the end of the war, was as head of "D Division," in charge of military deception operations in Southeast Asia."
So Bond was a latter day "deception" exercise by Ian.
More about Peter
I can't help thinking of Sherlock Homes and his less famous Brother.
