The last ten major changes to the site.
- 12/09/2019 - First Look: This morning we welcome to the compendium. We also welcome Zac Miller but since the two people are really one, I had to choose one name to give this two-book series and I went with who the man becomes, not who he started out at. Bit confusing but the books are really straight-forward and darn fun to read and has a twist that made me go back a few pages to make sure I was following correctly. I was and I loved it!
- 12/08/2019 - If you are in the mood for an action-packed series of government operatives mixed with a healthy dose of science fiction, the series for this evening is for you. Four books and one novella are available about in the series the author dubs the Delphi Group thrillers. Good name for it since that is the organization Watson works for. I have enjoyed what I've read and I think you will, too.
- 12/08/2019 - First Look: An assassin who sometimes works for the government and other times kind of against it joins the compendium with a good number of really good, exciting adventures. Nicknamed , this character has been through that horrible place and now sends a good number of other people to it.
- 12/07/2019 - Imagine you take James Bond and put him in Charles Bronson's body and send him out on assignments. You would get , a character created back in 1974 by Chilean artist German Gabler and just recently brought to America in English versions by Pulp 2.0. I was intrigued so I bought the first of several planned volumes which had 2 stories in it. I read the first story and ordered the second volume - then started the second story. I did not want any delay in getting the second book. As of this writing, that is all there is but hopefully there will be more for my reading pleasure. For your pleasure, if you have not gotten your copy yet, do so now! The stories are really fun and worth the price and time.
- 12/06/2019 - This evening, I present a nine-book series about a young woman who is handed by her billionaire father a security company with hundreds of employees and a very good reputation. She is no slouch when it comes to fighting and winning but she is very much inexperienced in running a huge company and she is idealistic so she has a tendency to stick her nose into all sorts of trouble. Luckily she has a good number of highly skilled and trained operatives watching her back. One of them also talks regularly to the Roman god, Mercury. I really enjoyed this series about .
- 12/06/2019 - First Look: A first for this compendium comes as I introduce the 1400th series, and that is the agent being added is a Special Agent of NCIS. operates largely in the Far East and is mainly involved in counterintelligence with occasion anti-terrorism duties.
- 12/05/2019 - An agent for a highly secretive British outfit, Echo 17, joins the compendium this evening. is a former military psychologist who is now an operative. 'Bit of a cold fish' is one description and it kind of fits in that he likes to work alone but he can get a bit heated when needed.
- 12/05/2019 - This morning we present a series about a young college student brought in to work for a secret, probable government agency called the Coalition. Very interesting young man. I liked him. Please welcome to the compendium.
- 12/04/2019 - First Look: This evening we visit another author's take on the private life of the James Bond creator in the two-book series . I am not big in taking real-life people and making up stories about them BUT the writing on these seems pretty good so I will give them a try.
- 12/04/2019 - First Look: This morning we say hello to , a chap who was a CIA for many years, got very tired of it so quit and became a newspaper editor and then, when his son is murdered and the culprit not caught, decides returning to his previous career is in order. Very exciting adventures.
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!
