Speaking of spies, John D. MacDonald was in the OSS (what became the CIA) in WWII, and E. Howard Hunt was in the CIA. Were there any other of our kind of writers who were involved with spying? James Atlee Phillips's brother David was in the CIA and worked with Hunt, so that's another connection. Graham Greene worked as a spy, didn't he? And Ian Fleming of course.
