Description

Employing hitherto closed access to the histories of several publishing houses, this is an investigation of the action-adventure novel, chronicling the rise and fall of small enterprises which first saw the potential in such an approach to fiction. It focuses first on the creations of Don Pendleton, tracing his 38-book series "The Executioner", and examining the evolution of the series under a growing number of writers. The study also includes a commentary on the many "Mack Bolan" imitators.
