RARA-AVIS: Spillane

From: southpaw@altavista.net
Date: 22 Aug 2001

  || The New American Library is publishing two volumes of the best of
  || his novels, from the late 1940s and early '50s. In books like "I,
  || the Jury," "One Lonely Night" and "Kiss Me, Deadly" (all included
  || in the collections, and all starring Mike Hammer), Spillane secured
  || a permanent place for himself in the pantheon of such mystery
  || greats as Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler and Ross Macdonald.
  || A fall rollout is being planned for "A Century of Noir" (also from
  || NAL), a volume containing some of Spillane's rare magazine stories
  || from the same era, which he edited with mystery writer Max Allan
  || Collins. An independent documentary of Spillane's life was recently
  || completed, and Jay Bernstein, producer of a Mike Hammer TV series
  || that ran on CBS during the '80s, is gearing up to sell prime time
  || on another incarnation of the private detective, with a twist
  || worthy of some of Spillane's best shockers.
