RARA-AVIS: Spillane feature

From: Moorich2@aol.com

There is a long feature on Mickey Spillane in the Wednesday, August 22nd edition of the Washington Post entitled "Man of Mysteries." The content is better than the title as the freelance writer John Meroney spent time with Spillane in Murrells Inlet, S.C. as well as significant research. I knew that Ayn Rand was a Spillane fan but did not know they met and became friends. Using quotes from her letters, Meroney makes a case that she had the hots for Spillane and the quotes do sound like a giddy teenager. He says they were "just good friends."
