The Goliath Bone: A Mike Hammer Novel
The Goliath Bone: A Mike Hammer Novel
by Max Allan Collins
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars The last ever new Mike Hammer novel??, 2 Jan. 2009
I rejoiced when I saw this was coming out. There has long been rumoured to have to been an unpublished Mike Hammer novel that the late, great Mickey Spillane left behind. One can only hope that there is more than just this one yet to be published. Although it was finished by Max Allan Collins, Mickey Spillane wrote the first and last parts of the book and left notes outlining the rest for Collins to complete. Mickey Spillane was the master of the hat and trenchcoat wearing, Colt .45 automatic pistol in hand, tough-guy with a soft-heart private detective who walked the dark and dangerous streets of New York City. Mickey Spillane was a great storyteller and made that you feel that you were right there with Mike Hammer on those foggy and rainy nights in the Big Apple while he was stalking or being stalked by his quarry. He drew you in and didn't let you go until the end of the story. He is greatly missed. Both he and Mike Hammer were truly one-of-a-kind. Nobody ever did this kind of detective fiction as well, let alone better or ever will. Grab this and relish it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Puts a very human face on one of the world's most devastating battles, 7 Nov. 2008
I read and was very deeply moved by the first book in the "Forgotten Voices" series - "Forgotten Voices of the Great War". With a life-long interest in and appreciation for world history, especially that of the First World War, often also referred to as The Great War, this new book, "Forgotten Voices of the Somme" is a most welcome addition to a fine series. It, like the first book on The Great War, does not weigh us down with facts and figures, but tells the story through the recorded words of those people who actually were there and who survived to relive their experiences for us. Men and women, officers and enlisted men, civilians, all from both sides of the conflict share their varied views of a horrific war and battle with us. It is thankfully as close to actually being there in the muddy trenches, fighting the enemy, the weather, the rats and feeling the fear of dying at anytime as we will ever get. A must read and very highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars I always knew Dawn French was beautiful!!, 8 Oct. 2008
This review is from: Dear Fatty (Hardcover)
I just saw this great book this morning and grabbed it. It is just loaded with some truly great photos, many in colour. Dawn French once said her father told her she was beautiful. I personally have always thought so, too. When you read her own true story and see these great and many rare, never before published photos, I think you will agree that Dawn is not only tremendously talented and funny but is truly one gorgeous babe, too!! Highly recommended!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Beware, incomplete and heavily censored!!, 6 July 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Savage Weekend [DVD] (DVD)
Why would anyone waste time and money releasing a film on DVD in a form that is confused and incomplete due to heavy editing and censoring?? Such is the case with Savage Weekend. I first saw the film several years ago at a drive-in theater in Georgia. I vividly recall that there were several nude and racy scenes and some fairly graphic violence, as well. Well, if you buy this DVD you can safely play it for the kids because all of the "adult" content is missing!! Also, the picture quality is absolutely dreadful and grainy and looks like it was copied from a very poor quality source; such as a copy made on VHS at home from a poor cable t.v. service!! Maybe one day Anchor Bay or someone else will give this film the treatment it deserves and release it in the original, complete, unedited and uncensored version. Also with decent and clearer picture quality, too. As a fan of actress Caitlin O'Heaney (aka Kathleen Heaney), this DVD is a real letdown.
