John Buchan - LIFE STORIES
 
 
8/26/1875     Buchan to "Bond, James Bond"
On this day in 1875, the lawyer-politician-writer John Buchan was born, in Perth, Scotland. Buchan wrote prolifically and in almost all genres, but he is best known for his spy-adventure novels, particularly the first "Richard Hannay" book, The Thirty-Nine Steps. Most give Buchan credit for the kind of espionage thriller -- he called them "shockers" -- that would eventually arrive at James Bond.
