Who are the best spy writers?

The best spy authors panel discussion

A few months ago, spy fan and journalist Tim Shipman published his list of the best spy authors of all time. This was no top ten list though; Tim revealed his favorite 125 spy writers and ranked them! He also gave us the lowdown on each spy author along with reading recommendations and where to get started with their books.

On August 7th, we will host our first ever live episode of Spybrary. A panel to discuss Tim's list of the best spy writers. Tim will reveal more about his method and criteria for selecting this monster list of spy authors. Joining us are Professor Penny Fielding, author and critic Jeremy Duns, spy blogger Matthew Bradford, and John le Carre book collector Steven Ritterman to run the rule over Tim's pick of the best spy writers.

This special live stream will be hosted by Spybrary Host Shane Whaley and we invite you to take part.

We will be streaming to our Spybrary YouTube Channel, our Facebook page and our Facebook group! So you can send in your observations/comments, which we will address during the panel discussion.

We look forward to seeing you there!
