Ian Fleming Publications, formerly known as both Glidrose Productions and Glidrose Publications is the publishing company responsible for the James Bond literary series. The company was founded by John Gliddon and Norman Rose and only published one book, Casino Royale before being purchased by Ian Fleming in 1952. In 1954 Fleming put Peter Janson-Smith in charge of the company. Janson-Smith ran it until 2001. In 2008 Simon Trewin was named head of the company.

Since 1997, Ian Fleming's two nieces, Lucy and her sister Kate Fleming, have controlled the publication company.[2] In 1999 the company's name was changed to "Ian Fleming Publications".

Other than the 37 official James Bond books, 7 film novelisations, 5 Young Bond books, 5 other spin-off novels, and 6 Bond short stories, Ian Fleming Publications is responsible for Fleming's other books The Diamond Smugglers, Thrilling Cities, and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
