The Executioner books are very light reading. You can go through one in about an hour to hour and a half if you're a reasonably fast reader. I also got an Ebay lot of the first seventy "Death Merchant" books. I only got to #8 before I couldn't take any more. So, based on the metric
"books-until-you've-cant-take-anymore". The Executioner series is about seven times better than the Death Merchant (54 books to 8). The mind boggles at the concept of a long series seven times worse than the Executioner :-).

I believe examples from the Death Merchant series are liberally represented in
"Gun in Cheek" and "Son of Gun in Cheek."
