RARA-AVIS: The Resurgence of the Spy Story

From: JIM DOHERTY ( jimdohertyjr@yahoo.com)

Is it just a coincidence that the spy story, once thought dead in the wake of the end of the Cold War, has surged into popularity again?

Off the top of my head, you've got TV shows like THE AGENCY and ALIAS; movies like THE SUM OF ALL FEARS, BAD COMPANY, and the upcoming James Bond flick; books like Robert Littel's massive THE COMPANY.

Question: If espionage is suddenly back in favor, why is Donald Hamilton having such a hard time selling the latest (and most likely last) Matt Helm novel?
