HMSS Back Online

Posted in Websites on May 2, 2007 by Deborah Lipp

One of my favorite Bond websites has long been HMSS. Always published infrequently, it has been dormant since 2002. I have continued to recommend it anyway, because of the quality of articles; the archives will just take you forever to work through, and they’re totally engrossing.

Well, a link on CBn tipped me that they were back, and sure enough, the article linked to is fab; a really deep interview with Bond screenwriters Purvis & Wade. So, after reading the interview, I mosey on over to the main site, and lo and behold, MEGA articles that will take me hours of fun to read.

Starting with the editorial, I find the reason for the five year delay: co-publisher Paul Baack was in a disabling pedestrian-meets-car accident in 2002.

Anyhow, in the course of that pleasant dog walk..I was…hit by a car, thereby breaking a couple of vertebrae in our neck, and winding up in the hospital as a newly-minted quadriplegic.

…One of the consequences of this accident is that HMSS has languished for several years. Months of hospitalization, ongoing physical therapy, and a serious addiction to “The People’s Court” on daytime TV pushed lighter pursuits onto the back burner.

Of course, I wish Paul the best of luck and whatever other kind of wishes he needs. And rah cheer for the return of HMSS!

Go. Read.
