Mickey Spillane dead at 88.

Even though I will always and forever be a Raymond Chandler fan, you can’t deny Mickey Spillane’s place in the pulp pantheon. A great and under-appreciated writer who forged his own way in an industry where writers of dime novels were looked down upon as gatecrashers and pretenders of true “literaturah”. 

Go punch a mook in the kisser in his honor today.
