Mickey Spillane: ” His Eyes Couldn’t Leave My Eyes”

Photographer Unknown, (The Cigarette Smoker)

“He was staring at my face. His eyes couldn’t leave my eyes and his flesh was already dying with the fear inside him. He tried to talk and made only harsh breathing sounds. He raised his hands as if I were something evil and he had to keep me away. I was evil. I was evil for the good. I was evil and he knew it. I was worse than they were, so much worse that they couldn’t stand the comparison.”
–Mickey Spillane, One Lonely Night
