Max Allan Collins is an American author of mysteries. Much more than a novelist, Collins has also penned short stories, movie novelizations, screenplays, graphic novels, comic books, comic strips, trading cards and more. Max was a fan of Mickey Spillane and eventually became friends with him. He would end up taking over for Spillane on his Mike Hammer series.

The first novel Max Allan Collins ever wrote was Mourn the Living, but that was not published until 1999 – over 20 years into his career as a published author. His first novel published was Quarry in 1976 (also titled The Broker). Below is a list of Max Allan Collins’ books in order of when they were originally published (as well as in chronological order when necessary):

    So what ever happened to the Mike Hammer book, “Don’t Look Behind You”? The cover artwork is on the MAC website. Also, why is there no audio book for “Will to Kill”?
