Welcome Back!

10/21/2014: The publishing company Brash Books is bringing back two spy books from the 80's, both by author Stan Lee. While they are not a series, which is what I concentrate on, they are both darn good spy adventures that deserve to be back in print.


I first read Dunn's Cunundrum shortly after it came out. It then seemed to be a constant in the used book stores that I've searched over the past decade showing that it had to have sold well but no longer on the new book shelves. The second book, The God Project, is coming out in 2015.

Another welcome fact in this era is that the books are available in e-book format. Check out your online provider to get a copy or, better still, go to Brash Books to see what else they have.

What's New
The last ten major changes to the site.
  • 10/11/2014 - Two new series are inducted into this compendium, both well worthy of membership. The first is a former thief turned SEAL turned CIA agent turned thief, Robin Monarch by Mark Sullivan with three books and three novellas. The second series is another CIA agent, this one trained in rescuing hostages in very hostile situations, Ryan Drake by Will Jordan.

  • 9/27/2014 - Preliminary information on three more series was entered today. Each of these have three books. They are Scott Roarke by Gary Grossman, Hadrian Black from Roger Vallon, and Daniel Shandon by Vance Duplechin. Please welcome all of them.

  • 9/26/2014 - After some time reading lots of different topics, I am adding several series in the next week or so. I just have preliminary comments of most of them. Starting it off, please welcome a private spook named Jason Peters by Gregg Loomis and CIA agent Alex Law by Kent Harrington. Both series have 3 books.

  • 9/13/2014 - My friend and fellow spy enthusiast, Johny Malone, host of unaplagadeespias, told me about the new Malko books being released in English. The details that I have were added today. Thanks, Johny, and thanks to those bringing English readers more Malko.

  • 9/10/2014 - The two-book series about Raymond Ingelram, better known as Rogue Male comes to this site. Though the time separation in the two adventures is roughly 3 years, the time between the writing is 40+ years! The second book is quite worth reading. The first book is such a fantastic hunter-hunted adventure, it should be considered mandatory.

  • 8/28/2014 - I have been reading like crazy but several of the books have been non-spy series (yes, I do still read other things). However, I have added recently preliminary entries on two young adult spy series: the two-book novelization series of the movies about Cody Banks and the very impressive 10+ book series about a group of spies who are all underage, CHERUB.

  • 8/7/2014 - After having worked on it for some time, I am pleased to add to this compendium a most fascinating series from nearly 80 years ago. Please welcome the inimitable Mr. Moto who is very very happy to meet you. Please be very very careful how you treat him, though, as Mr. Moto is very very good at what he does. In case you were wondering, Mr. Moto uses the double adverb a lot!

  • 8/4/2014 - A series from a couple of years ago about a husband-and-wife team working for the President has joined the group. Please check out R.L.Tyler's Vince and Cat.

  • 7/30/2014 - Preliminary data was recently entered on an interesting spy from the 30-50s, Gregory Sallust by British author Dennis Wheatley. I am still writing on it but thought I would tell people about it now.

  • 7/26/2014 - E. Baron sent me information about more Derek Flint items that have been around for a bit but I never knew about - a made-for-tv movie and a single-issue comic book. Thanks for the heads-up! The entry has been updated.

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!!
