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

  • 11/16/2017 - Tim Stevens, the terrific writer who has given us the compelling John Purkiss series, has yet another hero in the Intelligence business worth following. Please welcome Martin Calvary to the compendium as he joins with a 3-book set of really well-crafted adventures.

  • 11/15/2017 - For those of you who have not yet found the extremely interesting and enjoyable spy fiction site, Spybrary.com, do yourself a huge favor and check it out. If you like spy fiction, you are certain to like the interviews Shane has. Lots of variety giving lots of good suggestions.

  • 11/13/2017 - A very pleasant and enjoyable series about a young man who wanted to be a Marine and ended up an agent joins the compendium today. There are three books in the group so far and I enjoyed each of them. Please welcome Jack Knight to the collection.

  • 11/13/2017 - Fixed a bad entry on a darn good series, James Flynn. Name misspelled and pictures missing. Tad embarrassing. My apologies to the author.

  • 11/11/2017 - A Veterans Day greeting to you all. Today we welcome a humorous 5-book series into the compendium. Please say hello to Paul Blaine, agent of COVERT.

  • 10/30/2017 - A kick-butt young woman is the latest entrant into the compendium. Holly Lin has a tendency to go off on her own mission tangents which seldom go as desired but which are darned interesting to follow. Please politely say hello to her.

  • 10/29/2017 - I have made a preliminary entry for the comicbook/popular movie the Kingsman. It is not quite done as I iron out how to write up the differences between the two mediums but what I got is now on the site.

  • 10/14/2017 - A fellow spy-fi fan, Erin Carere, sent me a kind note telling me how she likes this site (thank you, my dear!) and letting me know about a project she has underway. The very talented Ms. Carere is an actress/comedian/writer who is working on a "spy parody/screwball comedy about two rival international spies. Think Moonlighting meets Austin Powers!" It is called Spy v SpiaYou can view it at here on YouTube. If you like it, she has a Kickstarter in place. Check it out and other things she has been involved in and be as impressed and entertained as I was.

  • 10/12/2017 - An interesting and very enjoyable 3-book series about a tech CEO who gets involved in all sorts of international trouble is the latest member of the compendium. Please welcome Clint Masters, head of CATSAT. And welcome an author who wrote a series interesting enough to hold me for all three stories.

  • 10/09/2017 - A very interesting and so-far enjoyable 4-book series about a crisis manager for the State Department, married to an experienced CIA operative, joins the compendium today. Please welcome Judd Ryker.

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!!
