monday poll disease strikes dozens

By the way, how is it that there is no James Bond fandom? For such a popular character with such a rich history and so many novels and movies, James Bond doesn't seem to have developed a fandom the way that Star Wars, Star Trek, etc. have. And that's despite more movies and a proven moneymaking potential. Why is that? Is it because of the lack of obvious fantasy/sci-fi elements? Or is there, in fact, a large and robust James Bond fandom that I'm simply unaware of? Anyway.
