Re: RARA-AVIS: Spillane's influence

Dave said, "To me, Dan Marlowe seemed influenced by Spillane. Have you ever seen any mention of that?"

No, but I agree with it. STRONGARM is reminiscent of THE LONG WAIT, in fact. I had a few letters from Marlowe many years ago, and he did say that THE VENGEANCE MAN had a touch of Jim Thompson.
