Personal Quote:

On finishing the Mike Hammer series by Mickey Spillane: "Mickey's file of unpublished material was extensive - another trio of Hammers can follow, if these three do well. This is a very big deal - there are only 13 Mike Hammer novels, and adding another three (or six) to the canon is unheard of for so famous a mystery series." See more »
