Fleming wrote 9 short stories about Bond in his lifetime, 6 of which were serialized in magazines and newspapers including Playboy and the UK's The Sunday Times. His first five were published in the 1960 book For Your Eyes Only and the last four were published posthumously in 1966's Octopussy and The Living Daylights.
A fourth short story titled "The Heart of Erzulie" was written by Raymond Benson in-between Never Dream of Dying and The Man with the Red Tattoo however it was never published because Ian Fleming Publications felt it was "too much of a Fleming pastiche." Benson, himself, acknowledges that it was little more than a time-killer in the interim between the two book projects.
