    I agree with pretty much everything you said. I certainly did not mean to imply that enjoying a genre in general required a blanket acceptance of all of its practitioners, on either social or aesthetic grounds. In fact, I'm not a fan of Spillane's either (or Vachss's Burke, either, for that matter; a contemporary Hammer with a different boogey man).

    As for being valid literature, I just want a good story, which can be found in any genre.
