What's New
The last ten major changes to the site.
  • 3/7/2015 - I have been planning to read Mark Sava series for some time but kept putting it off for some incredibly dumb reason. Finally, I started reading and was totally hooked. It is terrific. If you have not already, check it out! And please welcome a really good series to the compendium.

  • 2/28/2015 - One of my favorite writers, Brett Battles, has joined with another skilled and experienced author, Robert Gregory Browne, to give us this two-book series about a very interesting woman named Alexandra Poe. Please welcome her. Politely.

  • 2/21/2015 - Following a couple of days later the entry of the Man from C.A.M.P., I bring yet another sexpionage series though I could give very little information as I cannot afford the books. Please welcome Phil Scott, Secret Agent xx96. If anyone knows anything more about him, please let us all know.

  • 2/17/2015 - Fellow spy fan Darrel sent me an email about a series from the 60's, The Man from C.A.M.P., a 10-books series I had never heard of. Thanks, Darrel!

  • 1/30/2015 - A lot of reading of some really good books, some spy and some not, has filled my January with great entertainment. One of those set of books came from Jacques Antoine who has given us the newest member of this compendium, the young and dangerous Emily Kane. Check her out!

  • 1/3/2015 - Happy New Year! A couple days late, but hey! I have been enjoying the three-book (so far) series about an FBI agent catching and turning spies from Russia. Please welcome J. J. McCall by S. D. Skye. I hope she sticks around a while. She is a lot of fun.

  • 12/28/2014 - A two-book series about a retired operative named Adam Wolf joins the compendium today. The stories are more crime novel than spy-fi but his training as an agent definitely are needed to keep him alive. I liked the books a bunch.

  • 12/26/2014 - Highly addictive and entertaining action author Jack Higgins joined up with another very experienced author, Justin Richards, to bring us a couple years ago a 4-book series about twin teenage children of a spy, kids who are forced by circumstance to enter their father's unhealthy world. They are the Chance Twins, Rich and Jade.

  • 12/23/2014 - A really, really good cross between spy-fi and sci-fi and horror joins the collection today. Noted horror/sci-fi author Jonathan Maberry was nice enough to give us a (so-far) six book series about an agent named Joe Ledger who works for the Department of Military Sciences which deals with very unusual problems. One of which has Ledger having to kill a terrorist twice.

  • 12/21/2014 - Another spy series by Dennis Wheatley joins the compendium, this time about the adventurer and occasional spy Duke de Richleau. It is an 11-book series that started in 1935 and went until 1970.

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!!
