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

  • 08/11/2017 - An impressive number of titles comprise this latest entry into the compendium. Alec Fincham is a member of the British SBS who gets seconded to MI6 a lot. Please say hello.

  • 08/06/2017 - The first North Korean spy series I have encountered becomes the latest entry into the compendium. Young Agent Ko is yanked from the safety of her family and thrown into training to be a heartless killer. Unfortunately, she has a heart. Please welcome Agent Ko.

  • 08/05/2017 - A really good, action-packed series about a British cop, member of an elite Armed Response Unit who eventually moves to New York to become part of its Counter-Terrorism team joins the compendium today. Please say howdy to Sam Archer.

  • 07/28/2017 - It has been a few days since the last newcomer to the site and this latest entry in the compendium is, unfortunately, nothing to write home about. From 1940 comes a very short comic book series about Secret Agent Z-2 of the Secret Service.

  • 07/21/2017 - Last week I added Nick Wood to the compendium. Today I would like you to welcome Nick Woods, a former Marine who did not want the life that fell on him but when it came, he met it.

  • 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 Calla 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.

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!!
