For two years, I wrote reviews of the old Spy magazine, usually once a month. Those reviews have been completed.

Walter Monheit®, 1926–2011

Sadly, Spy’s monocular movie reviewer Walter Monheit® died on 2011.08.05 at age 25, Michael Musto reports.

Spy now on Google Books

As of February 2011, Spy issues have been scanned by Google Books.

Spy: The Funny Years

The retrospective book Spy: The Funny Years came out in 2006, and, after many months, I have a half-arsed review.

Final reviews

Need a copy of an article?

If you’ve ever written me to request that I hunt through my pile o’ Spy to find an article for you, then copy it and mail it your way, be advised that I won’t be doing so even if I told you I would.

Back issues solicited

I have a highly incomplete pile o’ Spy. If you’ve got any of the issues I need, talk to me. Anything after 1993 I am not in a big rush to acquire. Before that, of course, is gold.

Michael Russell does nearly all the scanning for this tiny site. It is vaguely ridiculous that I don’t have a scanner – still.
