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

  • 07/16/2017 - More preliminary comments being entered today on a thus-far three book series about a museum curator turned part-time government agent. Please welcome Cella Cress, aka the Decrypter.

  • 07/15/2017 - A Navy SEAL who has an unfortunate knack for finding conspiracies inside the U.S. government is today's entry into the compendium. Please say hi to Nick Wood.

  • 07/14/2017 - Preliminary comments about an interesting series today. Please welcome Fritz Wright, aka The Vengeance Man.

  • 07/11/2017 - I love spy series. Obviously. I also have freely admitted I love vampire series. It was fun a couple of years ago to add a series that mixed the two. Now I get to do it again and I am hooked. Please welcome Jaz Parks, CIA agent and partner to a vampire named Vayl.

  • 07/09/2017 - Happy Birthday to me! I have been goofing off today (well, except for mowing the front lawn) and my son-in-law and I went to see Spiderman: Homecoming today. We both really enjoyed it. Today I also add another series, this one a comic-book series from the early 50s. It has some good stories so hopefully you will have fun reading them. Please welcome Kent Blake to the compendium.

  • 07/04/2017 - Happy Birthday, America. I spent the day doing a ton of yard work and then a great dinner with my wife and going out for frozen custard with her and my daughter after watching some fireworks. Great day. Along with that, I read a bunch of this latest addition to the compendium. Today it is a 16-year-old girl who would not have dreamed of dealing with assassins and terrorists and things like that until she started having these dreams. Please welcome Lorna Walker.

  • 06/24/2017 - A member of the FBI who gets involved in all sorts of Homeland Security affairs is the newest member of the compendium. Please welcome this six-book series about Jack Randall.

  • 06/23/2017 - A two-book young adult series about two very rich and very well trained young people who get involved in international problems joins the compendium. They are Tom and Lela Kennedy and the books are part of The Billionaire Series (the author's title, not mine).

  • 06/20/2017 - For several years, the character Carrie O'Connor has been a partner to her senior agent, Justin Hall. Now I have read the couple of solo adventures about her, I have decided to give her her own membership in the compendium. Please welcome her - politely.

  • 06/11/2017 - A recent addition to the comic book spy scene is the very lovely and quite dangerous Scarlett Couture, head of security for a fashion company and undercover agent. Please welcome this kick-butt operative to the compendium.

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 confined membership 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!!
