The Bulletin Dozen is a monthly theme-based booklist available as an online-only Bulletin feature. Since we're awfully fond of bakers here at the Bulletin, we thought we'd adopt their philosophy of generosity and throw in an extra one or two when we have them to offer--so don't expect an even dozen. Please feel free to copy, download, or link to these lists. We ask only that you cite the source. See the archive for lists from previous months.

This month's dozens looks beyond the traditional Halloween versions to the sometimes scarier ones in the espionage game, where they often employ the latest gadgets - not to mention nerves of steel - to stop criminal masterminds and prevent international intrigue. Who will save the world today?
