From Library Journal:

McCormick--the prolific author of spy fiction (under the name Richard Deacon) and of Who's Who in Spy Fiction (LJ 9/15/77)--and Fletcher--also well versed in the genre--have the credentials to attempt one of the few overviews of the spy fiction genre. Their compilation of 225 authors (mostly American and British) supplies biographical, bibliographical, and critical information on each author. Their informative essays attempt to create some structure to the genre. The weaknessnes, however, are the source of critical information (the author her/himself); the admitted lack of comprehensiveness; and use of real names rather than better-known pen names to list authors, although the index cross-references pen names to real names.
