What's New
The last ten major changes to the site.

  • 10/24/2016 - From the comic book spy world comes another entry, this time a group of female agents (and a token male) called Danger Girl. A couple of the stories are quite good and if you are at all as immature as I am, most of the artwork is, ah, eye-catching.

  • 10/22/2016 - After too long of a break (sickness and death in the family, a wedding, a hurricane - interesting end to summer) I bring you a terrific series that I loved a lot and think you will. Please welcome Tucker Wayne and his friend, Cain. Do not pet Cain without permission.

  • 10/11/2016 - Some series I add with pride. Some I add to make my site as complete as I can. James Bond Jr. falls into the latter class. I did not care for this series meant for juveniles because it was not very good but it exists and so here it is.

  • 09/18/2016 - With considerable pleasure I present to you the latest member of the compendium, a private investigator who is also married to the Chief Executive. Please welcome the President's Henchman, James McGill.

  • 09/13/2016 - On the 13th of this month (albeit a Tuesday), I present to you the latest member of this compendium, Lady Satan. I hope you enjoy the write-up as much as I had writing it.

  • 09/05/2016 - It is Labor Day and I have been laboring on bringing you another series. Okay, not that much of a labor. And it is the same series, sort of, that I presented yesterday. Katarina Armstrong is the name of a comicbook character that is likely a descendant of yesterday's entrant and uses his covername. Please welcome Spy Smasher II - note the "II" is my appendage, not hers. She would say she is second to no one.

  • 09/04/2016 - As I prepare to enjoy Labor Day by just doing not much of anything, I bring to you a series that goes back quite a way - to 1940! It is another comicbook spy series and since it is from way back, it is in the public domain which means you can read it yourself if you wish. Please welcome Alan Armstrong, better known as Spy Smasher.

  • 08/28/2016 - Reaching back to the period of my adolescence, I bring you an enjoyable juvenile-intended series about a young agent named Christopher Cool who works for a CIA division called TEEN. They are fun!

  • 08/24/2016 - I have a very enjoyable series to present to you fellow spy-fi fans. Maggie Hope is a five-book series that enchants and captivates and brings you back for more with ease. This is not a thrill-a-minute series but it has many darn good plot lines and a lot of very interesting characters and the writing is top notch. Please welcome Ms. Hope to the compendium.

  • 08/20/2016 - I have been reading a fair amount the last couple of weeks, spreading my time between several series to be added. One of them is today's new member of the compendium. Please welcome a young lady from the early 70s, the delectable Cherry Delight.

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!!
