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

  • 02/19/2017 - It is good to have a little magic in your life. It certainly is the case for John Force, aka Magic Agent, an operative working in the comic book realm during the early to mid 60s. Please welcome this medallion-holding fellow to the compendium.

  • 02/17/2017 - A group of kick-butt do-not-tread-on-me guys who often do small (and not so small) covert jobs for the President joins the compendium. Please welcome the folks from Corps Justice.

  • 02/14/2017 - Today we head back in time again for a two-issue, four-adventure romp with John Steele, aka Freedom Agent. The time is 1963-1964 and the adversaries are the usual suspects but the stories are solid and the artwork just darned good. Please welcome Freedom Agent to the compendium.

  • 02/12/2017 - A very fun, fast reading series about a gift-shop manager turned FBI agent turned cloak and dagger avoider is the offering today. I very much recommend this two-book series from the early 70s written by a science fiction master. Please welcome Tony Hawkin to the compendium.

  • 02/11/2017 - Let us go again back 70+ years to before WWII and witness the service of Don Davis, Espionage Ace. This man is interesting to me because he kept changing bosses. Army Intel, Navy Intel, War Department Intel, British Intel, F.B.I., Secret Service, State Department, and finally a totally new one. Please welcome this gadfly to the compendium.

  • 02/09/2017 - The latest entrant into this compendium is a former Special Forces soldier whose dad was just murdered and who wants to know who and why. He also just inherited a multi-billion dollar company. Please welcome Thomas Gunn.

  • 02/06/2017 - Preliminary report on two folks, a man and a woman, who work for the CIA. They each has unique talents that make them very interesting to follow. Please welcome Fox & Parris to the compendium.

  • 02/05/2017 - On this Super Bowl Sunday, I take great pleasure in not watching the pre-game festivities and adding to the compendium a delightful cozy-mystery series that strays into the spy-fiction realm enough to qualify for my flexible requirements. Lady Georgiana, 35th in line for the crown, is a wonderful excursion into the early 30s British upper crust and sometimes cloak and dagger-ing.

  • 02/04/2017 - Another excursion into the past brings us the latest new entry in the compendium. From just before WWII comes Captain Bruce Blackburn and his plastic-surgery-enabled twin, Lt. Jackson. Blackburn is definitely the star of the series but poor never-reveal-a-first-name Jackson deserves a shout-out as well.

  • 01/29/2017 - A writer who already had one impressive series in this compendium created another chap who more than deserves reading. David Shirazi is a CIA agent of Iranian descent who must deal with that nation's nuclear weapons aspirations. Please give him a welcome and a look-see.

SPY FICTION!

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!!
