ABOUT THE SERIES

       Regina is a freelance agent.
       In the Intelligence community, Regina (no other name given) is codenamed the Blue Queen. According to the series, the Blue Queen is a chess piece, an extra queen that is placed on the board and can then be used by either player.
       Regina is called the Blue Queen because of her freelance status, an agent working for whichever western power can meet her bill as well as interest her in the assignment. The rumors about her refer to activities during the Trujillo assassination, the Suez Canal closing, and even a run-in with Khrushchev in his Cuban activities.
       Her background information is sparse - mainly that she is an American citizen hailing from the mid-west. She apparently wants the secrecy and the mystery to stay that way.
       Her cover for her travels around the world is that of a famous lounge singer, one who is immensely popular both for her voice and for her voluptuous figure. Wherever she goes, her reputation for great singing and great measurements have preceded her. This appeal works greatly to benefit her real job as dictators and crime bosses and other nefarious creatures are guaranteed to lustfully invite her into their homes, never expecting someone as desirable could also be so dangerous.

       Two popular female action characters already in print at the time Regina came onto the scene were Modesty Blaise and Honey West. Both of these dynamite ladies had a handsome virile male assistant who is always horny but who would never think of making a pass at the boss. Not one to be left out of the fun, Regina has Randy Kidd, her piano player as well as her producer. He is also her able sidekick in her true business as the most notorious freelance agent operating in the business today. He also is always ready to lay down in the line of duty, ever able to prove his first name is both a noun and an adjective.

1 The Spy With The Blue Kazoo The Spy With The Blue Kazoo
Written by Dagmar, Lou Cameron
Copyright: 1967

Professor Fang has a diabolical plan to take over the world and one of the most unusual mechanisms for pulling it off, a chemical that will cause anyone in contact with it to go into a lecherous mode where relieving carnal lusts is vital. There is no respite from the yearning and the victim will soon copulate his or her way to death!

2 The Spy Who Came In From The Copa The Spy Who Came In From The Copa
Written by Dagmar, Lou Cameron

A mad Vietnamese scientist has created a devastating device, the Hu Ray, which acts as a depolymerizer, destroying all rubber and plastic. That would be bad. Also girdles, bras, pantyhose, and prophylactics. This would be catastrophic.

MY COMMENTS

       These books are silly. They obviously were meant to be and they nailed it. Spoofs. Gags. Sex jokes. Bodily function humor. More sex jokes. Terrible puns, especially in names. Lots and lots of sex jokes.
       The books were written by veteran writer Lou Cameron and the delectable Dagmar, a woman who made her television debut in 1950 with NBC’s first late-night show Broadway Open House where she was always seen in low-cut gowns to emphasize her considerable assets. She played a ditzy, dumb blonde, something she was apparently far from being in real life. She proved the adage that you have to be pretty smart to play someone so dumb.
       I know no backstory as to how and why Ms. Dagmar would decide to create the character of the Blue Queen. Perhaps she thought of playing her in a movie or maybe she just had an idea and said why not. Whatever the reason, I am glad she did as the books are fun. And silly.

       One word of explanation about the very low grade. As a spy book or an adventure book or anything else, really, it is not a good series, so I graded it very badly. But I loved it!! Go figure.
