RARA-AVIS: Stephen Hunter

Bill Crider (abc@wt.net)
Thu, 1 Apr 1999 12:42:18 -0600 (CST) I have to agree with David Smith's description of Stephen Hunter's books as
"testosterone laden." I practically have to hose myself down after I read
one. But I'm notquite in agreement with Terrill Lankford's comment that
there are no wasted words in a Hunter book. Sometimes I tire out before the
end. Of course that might be me and not Hunter, but sometimes I wish he'd
been writing Gold Medal novels about 40 years ago.

Having mentioned STREET 8 on this list before, I agree with Paul Bergin
about its merits. As for Horace McCoy, I'm a big fan of KISS TOMORROW
GOOD-BYE, in either of its versions. (I read the longer one first, before I
knew that it was published earlier in a shorter form.)
