randy says: As for Spillane's books, the words are direct, plain and perfectly keeping in the worldview and educational level of Hammer. He doesn't use big words or pull out a philosophy book and start reading it. And his character/words/emotions are in line with someone who needs to cut through a lot of noise in order to do his job. The right tool for the right job, you could say.


the anecdote, told by spillane himself, is that no one drinks cognac or wears a mustache in his books because he doesn't know how to spell those words.
