I collect James Bond RPG material and they published some stuff in Heroes Magazine by Avalon Hill.  I have a few issues but not all of them.  Does anyone know how many issues they published?  It didn't last long.  Does anyone have the issues and know which ones had Bond articles?  Any info would be great.   I'd be willing to trade or buy issues to if someone has any they don't want.

Same goes for Different Worlds, they published a adventure in one issue I have does anyone know of any other issues with Bond RPG material.

Thanks.

Awesome index, thanks!  Wish there had been more Bond stuff though I have the adventure already and was hoping for another.

Yeah I've got it and its not to bad, though even when I picked it up in the 1990s it was dated - its a music themed adventure and uses the Bob Segar song with the Katmandu reference.  I was hoping they had others, the game is great but I think I've picked up everything out there.

Heroes magazine ran for 11 issues (volume 1, #1-7 and volume 2, #1-4)
Different Worlds ran for 47 issues.

I have a number of the Heroes and DW issues I would be willing to sell for a decent price if you are interested. All are in excellent or better condition.
