What's New
The last ten major changes to the site.
  • 11/15/2015 - Just before the new James Bond movie, Spectre came out, I received an email talking about the watches various Bonds have worn. I share the address with you because it was a hoot to read. Check out Watches Of Bond.

  • 11/10/2015 - It has been a month since my last addition but boy have I got one now! I was absolutely and totally hooked in the first couple of pages and did not come up for air until five books and one novella had passed. Vanessa Michael Munroe is one of the most unique, fascinating, entertaining, and dangerous characters I have met in years and I cannot recommend this series strongly enough. Three letters might help: WOW.

  • 10/10/2015 - I present here an eight-book series about a private investigator who used to work for the DIA and who still finds himself pulled into missions that work with them or against the CIA. Please welcome Penn Gwinn.

  • 10/09/2015 - A two-book series about a lawyer specializing in cyber-crimes enters the compendium. Chris Bruen is not out to get involved in fighting international cyper-terrorists but he is pulled in nevertheless.

  • 10/05/2015 - A truly terrific and fun 2-book series joins the compendium today. I just finished the second book and really wished for more but I will just have to wait, impatiently, for a while as the author crafts another gem. Please welcome Sam Dryden to the group.

  • 09/19/2015 - Two totally different type of agents join the compendium this day. The first is a light-hearted, what-if two-book series which ponders the idea that before she met Jack, Jackie Bouvier might have worked for the CIA. The other is another two-book series about a British agent having to return to an area where he nearly died before and deal with people who would love to see him not living any more, Daniel Swann. Please welcome them both.

  • 09/13/2015 - A fun, fast-action five-book series of first justice and then more joins the compendium. Please welcome security consultant Tom Gray to the group.

  • 09/05/2015 - Two new fun spy series join the compendium this Labor Day weekend, both a lot of fun to read but each quite different from the other. First there is a young adult series about Kelly James, aka GiGi, one of the Specialists. The other is Blake Carver, a highly respected and experienced CIA operative pulled suddenly to work directly for the White House.

  • 08/29/2015 - In 1973, an author wrote a fun spy thriller about a cynical agent named Charles Remly. 30+ years later, he decided to revisit that man and so the two-book series joins the compendium. Please welcome him but do not be surprised if he acts a tad snarky.

  • 08/24/2015 - Colonel Buck Madison and his CIA analyst wife get into several very nasty scrapes in the four-book series joining this compendium today. Please welcome Buck & Dolly.

More What's New!


     Say the word SPY to most people and they will respond with James Bond, with good reason as he is the best known of all fictional spies. With 20+ blockbuster movies over the last 40+ years, along with the standard movie hype, virtually the entire world knows about 007 and his License To Kill.

     Of course, James Bond is by no means the only spy in the world of fiction, just the best known. Who are the rest? Who has his or her own license to kill, thrill, or chill. How do these agents stack up against each other? Who would you want beside you in a car chase, in a knife fight, in a dark alley, or beneath the covers?

     This site is dedicated to the many, many men and women who, at least in fiction, have defended our freedoms against all forms of enemies, foreign and domestic. Well, granted a few of them were just in it for the money and many were only after the excitement, and sex played a huge role in the motivation of more than a few. But still, their actions helped not only preserve our way of life (on paper) but also brought us, the readers, many hours of escapism and vicarious pleasure.

     So, who are these people that I have slaved so diligently to present to you? They are the men and women of spy-fi about whom there is a series. Single-book characters need not apply. There has to be at least two books. Two's the minimum but the more the merrier.

     Moreover, I have limited the collection to those series who have operated at least some since the end of the Second World War, known in my own head as the "Bond-period". I know there are many good series that went on before but so far I have only collected the post-WWII series. Also, I have kept the series confined to the English language. If it wasn't put into English so I can read it, I haven't worried about it.

     Each spy has his or her own page. Click on the "Characters" button to go to a listing page. Click on the letter the character's last name starts with (or a more common moniker like "Death Merchant" if appropriate). That will take one step further into the labrynth. Finally, select the character's name from the list and, voila!

     Have fun!!
