What's New

The last ten major changes to the site.

  • 06/14/2024 - We are heading back over in time nearly nine decades for today's entrant, a three adventure series by Gerald Verner about British spymaster Michael Dene. He is a man who loves to travel and seems to relish being a man of mystery - and one who likes to use expressions such as 'queer devil'.

  • 06/13/2024 - Today we welcome to the compendium a man, Simon Fletcher, who works for a small organization with the unusual name of A1Zero. We have 8 novella-sized adventures (perfect for this series making them really enjoyable reads with no slow-down) about him written by the highly gifted Jeremy Waldron. I do not know if Mr. Waldron is planning any more about Fletcher but if he does come out with more, I will definitely snatch them up.

  • 06/12/2024 - A very enjoyable pair of operatives, CIA operative A.J. Bruce and Delta Force Colonel Javier Smith, make up the team Bruce & Smith in a couple of exciting and really fun adventures penned by Randall Krzak (I like his first name!). There is supposed to be a third but it has not surfaced yet. Still, the two that are available are well worth the time reading them.

  • 06/11/2024 - In My Comments for today's entrant I write, "This series is a cross between spy fiction and military fiction with much of it being the military side but enough of it falls into the cloak-and-dagger realm to justify its membership in this compendium." The three adventures are written by Max Dent and deal with British agent Bruce Cole, a man who answers only to the Prime Minister.

  • 06/10/2024 - We do not have enough spy series coming from New Zealand. That is my opinion, of course, but I venture it is also a fact. That is a bit alleviated today, though, with a really enjoyable 4-book series penned superbly by Cat Connor. The adventures are of a New Zealand private investigator named Veronica Tracey who co-runs an agency named "Wherefore Art Thou". This former government operative finds herself always back in that kind of work whether she wants it or not and we have the joy of following along.

  • 06/09/2024 - Today I enter a trio of series because all of these are related to one another via Spy School, an organization that trains young people to become highly skilled and experienced operatives. The first series is Spy Academy which deals with a trained agent going undercover at Spy School to uncover a traitor. The second series is Spy Academy - The Royals with lead character Roxy Villareal. And the third series is The Spy Chronicles which follows the adventures of Serenity Sinclair. All three series, which are in fact related to yesterday's entry, are penned by Scarlett Haven. Some are really novellas sold separately and some are full-length (albeit short) books. All are really aimed to young female readers but old males like me still found them charming and fun.

  • 06/08/2024 - Say hello to Zara Summers, the young lady training to be a spy whose adventures are detailed in The Zara Chronicles. There are 12 excellent YA/NA tales penned by Scarlett Haven and while they are obviously designed for girls, anyone can enjoy them. I did.

  • 06/07/2024 - Say hello to Hawk, Cowboy, and Liz. That trio make up the group known as the series named Top Secret Presidential. Well, initially it is Hawk and Cowboy but Liz will show them quickly she not only belongs but is very much needed. This three-adventure series is from a couple years ago and penned by Mike Shellenbergar.

  • 06/06/2024 - Another interesting spy television show that did not last very long joins the compendium today. An odd name for the program - My Own Worst Enemy deals with Edward Albright and/or Henry Spivey. It only lasted 9 episodes when it aired in 2008.

  • 06/05/2024 - We are heading back to 1959 Britain for today's entry into the compendium. Interpol Calling was the name of the television show which presented Inspector Paul Duval fighting all sorts of international bad guys and more than one spy-ish fellow. 39 episodes of his adventures were aired.

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!!
