David has been an active author since the early 1980's and has always been known for combining interesting ideas with well told stories. During this interview I mentioned an episode of the original Outer Limits that had a thematic similarity to Blade Runner but couldn't at the time remember the episode's title. Please note that we did this interview in a room that had some real issues concerning echoes.
A great deal of information about Dave's writing, including detailed lists of characters and locations, can be found at the aptly named The Works of David Brin web site. Biographical information about David Brin and a listing of his publications can be found here or here.

You can learn more about Gamma Ray Bursts by going to this web page at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center or by reading this article from Scientific American or this other, somewhat more technical, article. On Saturday - July 7, 2001 - our guest was Gavin Scott, screenwriter for the mini-series based on The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley and who also created the TV series The Secret Adventures of Jules Verne. However, in recent years, we've seen a trend wherein books are translated into a mini-series rather than a movie.
But the writer who sets out to adapt a 900 page book into a four hour mini-series will still be facing a big problem. Gavin Scott did a fine job - in my opinion - of adapting Marion Zimmer Bradley's classic book The Mists of Avalon for its presentation as a TNT mini-series. Gavin Scott's screenwriting credits fall solidly within the realm of science fiction, including The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, Space Rangers, The Borrowers and Small Soldiers. This last credit is a wonderful series, currently airing on the SciFi Channel, that has the young Jules Verne livng out adventures that become the inspirations for the books that he later writes. This week's show has several items that may reveal more about upcoming productions than you might want to know when seeing them.

To learn more about the other projects Gavin Scott has worked on you might wish to consult this entry on him from the Internet Movie Database and then read this interview with Gavin. To learn more about Marion Zimmer Bradley and her works you should first consult her Official Web Site.

Recently, I compiled a list of two hundred of my favorite adventures published before the Eighties (1984–93). Thus — below, please find a list of sixty-one of my favorite espionage adventures — arranged not qualitatively (which would be impossible) but chronologically.
PPS: The list of my Top 101 Science Fiction Adventures features only one sf title from the Thirties.

From Left to Right: Passpartout (Michael Courtmanche), Phileas Fogg (Michael Praed), Rebecca Fogg, and Jules Verne (Chris Demetral). Working closely with the composer and the creator of the show, Gavin Scott, we present close to 140 minutes of music from this great show in a 2 CD set, priced at a single CD cost.
DiGregorio and includes information about the discovery of circadian rhythms in the data from the Labled Release experiment that was performed by the Viking Spacecraft in 1976. Looking at this site reminds me of what might have been, but it also makes me dream of what yet may be.
The titles marked with an asterisk (*) are from my Top 200 Adventures list; the others are second-tier favorites.
Rudyard Kipling’s espionage adventure Kim, in which an Irish orphan in India not only becomes the disciple of a Tibetan lama, but is recruited by the British secret service to spy on Russian agents participating in the Great Game. Robert Erskine Childers’s espionage adventure The Riddle of the Sands can be a demanding read for those with no interest in sailing or timetables.
Joseph Conrad’s espionage adventure The Secret Agent is a sardonic inversion of the genre. Sax Rohmer’s terrorist adventure The Quest of the Sacred Slipper, in which a British archaeologist uncovers the sacred slipper of the prophet Mohammed. John Buchan’s adventure Huntingtower, published between the third and fourth Richard Hannay novels, is the first of several adventures featuring one of the most unlikely heroes ever, retired Scottish grocer Dickson McCunn. Graham Greene’s espionage adventure The Ministry of Fear, which Fritz Lang adapted for the screen in 1944. Helen MacInnes’s WWII espionage adventure The Unconquerable (aka While We Still Live). Graham Greene’s espionage adventure Our Man in Havana, a sardonic inversion of the genre.
Donald Hamilton’s espionage adventure Death of a Citizen, the first in a long-running (27 titles) series featuring assassin Matt Helm. Len Deighton’s espionage adventure The IPCRESS File is a sardonic inversion of the genre… but still an exciting thriller. James Grady’s hunted-man adventure Six Days of the Condor — upon which the 1975 Robert Redford movie Three Days of the Condor is based — sees a nerdy CIA analyst (he specializes in reading thrillers and mysteries) use his knowledge to survive the attacks of trained assassins and rogue CIA agents. With Elizabeth Foy Larsen and Tony Leone, Josh produced the popular family activities guides UNBORED (2012), UNBORED GAMES (2014), and UNBORED ADVENTURE (2015), not to mention two UNBORED activity kits from MindWare. Levin, one of the bioscience investigators on the 1976 Viking Mission to Mars, has a web page about the question of Life on Mars in which he asserts that the data from the Viking Mission indicates that there is currently life on Mars. Also, I have friends who’ve published adventures since 1983 — I don’t want these lists to be biased! When the Tartar Khan incites a rebellion and separates the Russian Far East from the mainland, Michael Strogoff, courier for Tsar Alexander II, is sent to Irkutsk on a crucial mission. In the process, he races across India; Kipling — an imperialist, but a keen observer of India all the same — brilliantly captures the essence of that country under the British Raj.
But it’s a thrilling yarn nevertheless, one which sought to alert British readers to the danger of German invasion. A spy for the Italian government becomes estranged from her employer because she has fallen in love with a member of the US secret service.
Its protagonist, Lafcadio, a would-be Nietzschean superman who reads only adventures like Aladdin and Robinson Crusoe, stumbles upon a plot involving the Pope. Continuing his undercover work against the Germans and their allies the Turks, Hannay investigates rumors of an uprising in the Muslim world — cf. Phillips Oppenheim’s Gothic-style espionage adventure The Great Impersonation, in which a dissolute English baronet who happens to look exactly like the military commandant of the colony of German East Africa attempts a mission impossible shortly before the outbreak of WWI. When an exiled Russian noblewoman is imprisoned — in a Scottish tower — by Bolshevik agents, McCunn and unsuccessful poet John Heritage, aided by a troupe of Glasgow slum children, ride to her rescue.

A British secret agent in Russia rescues the daughter of a Tsarist minister from Bolshevik revolutionaries.
During the Twenties, these two modes of adventure writing co-existed; by the end of the Thirties, these two modes would merge in an aufheben (destroying-and-preserving) manner. On vacation in pre-WWII Turkey, crime novelist Charles Latimer begins researching a master criminal and spy who has recently died.
A British spy working covertly in Germany is missing, so a young British couple are asked to turn their summer vacation into an undercover mission.
Fun fact: MI5 investigated Agatha Christie because a character called Major Bletchley appeared in her N or M?. In this story about a Francophone British soldier sent to spy as part of the resistance to the Nazi occupation of northern France — because he looks just like an injured Breton soldier — MacInnes strikes a dynamic balance between Buchan-style romance and Ambler’s hardboiled style. At a charity fete held in wartime London, Arthur Rowe wins a cake that contains a secret message.
A British woman in Warsaw becomes a double agent — working for Germany while passing along secrets to the brave Polish resistance.
A middle-aged scholar of classic literature stumbles upon a massive art smuggling operation in war-torn London; he pretends to be a member of the smuggling gang, and winds up at an isolated Scottish castle housing foreign agents. Why does Humphrey Paxton, son of one of Britain’s leading atomic boffins, insist that he is being persecuted by spies? A Buchan-esque thriller — written to be serialized — in which Roger Taine, a Dorset salesman, accidentally kills a man (while hunting) who turns out to be a neo-Nazi. Aided by an ex-fascist, Roger Taine stalks the communist Russian agent who has kidnapped Taine’s sons.
No, Goldfinger, For Your Eyes Only, Thunderball, The Spy Who Loved Me, and On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. The title refers to the metaphorical death of peaceful citizen and family man Matt Helm and the rebirth of the WWII killer. Though she got famous writing WWII anti-Nazi espionage adventures, some consider her Cold War anti-Communist books to be her best. A sardonic inversion of the genre, one which de-glamorizes the spy and spy-craft — and at the same time a suspenseful, elegantly plotted, morally ambiguous thriller. George Smiley — the pudgy, cuckolded, anti-James Bond — is recalled to the British Secret Intelligence Service to hunt down a double agent… one of his own ex-colleagues. Thirty years after WWII, Steve Champion, hero and wily leader of an anti-Nazi intelligence group which operated in occupied France during the war, is up to something.
Google their websites (yes plural) and you’ll get an idea why even Edward Snowden has probably read it. Its protagonists are archetypes of the amateur adventure hero, the likes of whom would later appear so memorably in the novels of John Buchan.
Subtitled A Nightmare, the book follows a Scotland Yard man as he infiltrates the local chapter of the European anarchist council… only to discover that it has been interpenetrated entirely by detectives.
The first novel, assembled from earlier stories, about the insidious and brilliant Fu Manchu, who would inspire racist depictions of SF’s Asian villains from Ming the Merciless to Dr.
When mining engineer Richard Hannay discovers the existence of a ring of German spies who have stolen British plans for the outbreak of war, he is framed for murder. Near the end of WWI, Hannay is recalled from active duty on the Western Front to go undercover — as a pacifist! Also, it seems that a sinister criminal organization is tapping into the psychic disorder caused by the Great War! Partly based on the author’s WWI experience as a member of British Intelligence in Europe.
By 1943 John Buchan-type adventure (like Buchan himself, who died in 1940) was dead; but Buchan-esque themes and memes had found new purchase, in the wised-up adventure writing of Michael Innes, for example, not to mention Eric Ambler and Graham Greene.
As he enters his subject’s criminal underworld, Latimer realizes that his own life may be in jeopardy. MI5 was afraid that Christie had learned of Britain’s top-secret codebreaking center, Bletchley Park. PS: The book was required reading for Allied intelligence agents sent to work with the French underground. Neither side trusts her, so when she is pursued by a German officer through the forests of Poland, she’s on her own… almost.
Pepperell III shrinks until he’s pocket-sized, he befriends a slang-talking seagull named Gus. I enjoyed these books as an adolescent, but find most of them (except the short stories) almost unreadable now. NB: In the late 1960s, several comedy movies — sardonic inversions of the genre — starring Dean Martin were produced. In this one, set in picturesque Venice, a resourceful, intelligent amateur gets into a situation where a skilled agent would fear to tread.
After The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, this is the second-best novel by the author… who worked for MI5 and MI6 in the ’50s and ’60s, when Kim Philby was exposed as a KGB mole.
His former second-in-command, the novel’s unnamed narrator, is tasked with the unenviable job of figuring out what it is. Here we meet for the first time Hannay’s great characters Sandy Arbuthnot (master of disguise), Peter Pienaar (South African hunter), and John Blenkiron (dyspeptic, anti-fascist American industrialist).
Hannay’s wife, Mary, and his comrade Sandy Arbuthnot, master of disguise, join him in his quest. Learning that a reclusive middle-European scientist has invented a tiny, super-powerful explosive, Peter and Gus volunteer to steal it away from him. The first of two short adventures, published one after the other, about the same protagonist. In contrast to Bond’s rococo thrills, Graham Greene, and John Le Carre gave us morally ambiguous — yet suspenseful, exciting — espionage adventures. The 2011 movie version, starring Gary Oldman, was pretty good; so was the the 1979 miniseries with Alec Guinness. John Blenkiron and Peter Pienaar (now an ace pilot) reappear; and we meet their beautiful, brave comrade Mary Lamington. Sent from Boston to close down a Hawaiian casino run by a distant relation, who turns out to be a beautiful woman, hapless Wilson Hitchings stumbles upon a Manchurian money-laundering scheme. To this day, the compartment in which Peter rides on Gus’s back makes me gnash my teeth with envy.
