Headed out the door, but would love a link to Rand's take on the Mickster if you have it.


More Spillane;


 "Y'know my favorite Hollywood actor who I got to know? Basil Rathbone. Absolutely an authentic guy."


Mickey was full of surprises.

One can certainly debate the quality of Spillane's writing, then and now, but his success is unassailable.

***************** Great comments, Alan. Thank you for sharing. I don't think it's been mentioned this go-around but Ayn Rand was a big fan of Spillane and has written an interesting essay on his writing.
