What's New

The last ten major changes to the site.

  • 04/02/2020 - A three-book series from a half decade ago joins the compendium today with the entry of Max & Carla. Max is a middle-aged man in search of adventure and excitement. Carla is a 25-ish woman who seems to be the embodiment of both. Together they get hooked up with a 'shadowy group' called the Organization and that gets them hooked up with the CIA, MI5, and who know who else.

  • 04/02/2020 - Taking a Second Look at an MI6 agent named Alex Dorring who has gone through a ton of very unpleasant things in his career and that is all before the adventures begin!

  • 04/01/2020 - A Second Look at Kate Moore, a two-book series about a woman who tried to leave her deceptive life-style behind when she and her husband and kids moved to Europe for work. Deception did not leave her, though. Like the other series mentioned today, I was not impressed.

  • 04/01/2020 - Well, we made it through a very 'interesting' March and April is looking like nothing to Fool with. I am continuing my Second Look trend with a return to the future and the tales of Commander Craig. I am not impressed.

  • 03/31/2020 - I take a more complete look at a former KGB agent named Mikhail Asimov who then became a freelance hitman and who is now working for the CIA as Max Austin. These stories are really good and exciting and I think you will like them.

  • 03/31/2020 - Continuing my string of Second Looks, I bring again to you the exciting stories of a consummate liar and darned good government agent, Lance Priest. Watching this fellow stretch, twist, mold, bend and otherwise manhandle the truth is captivating.

  • 03/30/2020 - Again a Second Look, this time at a terrific three-book series that takes us back to pre-WWII Europe and the actions of soldier-of-fortune Cal Jardine on behalf of the British government and more specifically, British Intelligence. These are excellently crafted tales worth every minute spent reading them.

  • 03/30/2020 - A Second Look at Kate Adams, a college professor and lecturer in the field of finance who asks too many questions about her husband's mysterious death and ends up with agents from several countries now interested in her. Good series. Well written.

  • 03/29/2020 - Second Look at a previous Coming Soon that deals with a trained CIA linguist and agent who operates out of the unlikely locale of Ottawa, Canada. I would not have thought much spying went on there but boy does Talia Reynolds keep busy.

  • 03/29/2020 - Second Look at a sci-fi/spy-fi series about a genetically enhanced young man who is being sought by a very, very nasty international organization. Mark Midway is the objective for the bad guys but unfortunately for them, he is by no means an easy target.

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!!
