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

  • 04/26/2017 - It is not often that I get almost giddy with excitement about a new member to the compendium but I am shaking with glee to introduce Slough House to the few that have not already heard of it. Based on the recommendations I have gotten, many have. Now I have and I have given it an A+ because it is really that good.

  • 04/23/2017 - Another look back in history with a 12-issue comic book counterespionage agent named Jonathan Kent. No, it is not Superman's human father...or is it?

  • 04/22/2017 - From the mid 30s comes a two-book series written for the young adult market about a young man who becomes involved with fighting spies and international crooks due to his uncle with the FBI. Please welcome Agent Nine, aka Bob Houston to the compendium.

  • 04/21/2017 - An interesting series is added today in that it is the second series about a man calling himself Spy Smasher. It is also interesting in that though these stories appear in comic books, none are graphic tales but are one-page prose short stories. There are 30 of them of which I have found 15 and have provided the screenshot of the page for reading. If anyone has any that I lack, let me know. Please welcome Sam Spolo.

  • 04/16/2017 - Happy Easter to you all. I enjoyed a delightful day with my family including an awesome meal prepared by my wife and eldest daughter. I am trying to be a good boy when it comes to eating but today I granted myself naughty privileges and it was worth it! Now, for your reading pleasure, a series I started reading over a year ago and cannot remember what stopped me because it is really good. Please welcome Alexis Stanton, a hoot of an agent written by a lady in my old stomping grounds of the Black Hills.

  • 04/15/2017 - Happy Tax Day! Okay, not so happy. Well, here is a large series that might make things so better. A Navy SEAL turned agent for the President, please welcome Grant Stevens to the compendium.

  • 04/14/2017 - From the mid 50s we get today's new member of the compendium. Atlas (soon to be Marvel) Comics gave us a few exciting adventures of a globe-trotting Secret Service agent named Rick Davis. Please say hello. And if you know anything more about the missing stories, let me know.

  • 04/12/2017 - A series taking place in the 1870s joins the compendium today. The writing is excellent, the plots interesting, and the main character is terrific. Please welcome India Black.

  • 04/09/2017 - A frequent contributor sent me information on a one-issue comic book from 1966 which had 4 adventures of the same character and though I have scant info on it, I add it to the site now in the hopes others will fill in blanks. Please welcome Charles Rand, the Man From S.U.N.D.A.Y.

  • 04/02/2017 - Happy Birthday to my son - now old enough to run for President!


More What's New!

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!!
