I was wondering what others people have to say about spy fiction in and its popularity. To me the spy thriller genre is not as popular as it used to be. This really is kind of sad, because I love the genre very much, and in the process of writing my own spy novel. The problem is, I don't want my book to eventually be published and have no one buy it. I understand why this might be. You can only tell the same plots over and over, until the reader becomes tired and eventually leaves the genre. If you're a name in spy fiction, only then will people notice your work. For new authors, who knows? My questions is, what is your opinion on the spy genre? Do you think its dead? Will it be as popular as it used to be?
