Never really did get into either,  Did like some of the Mac Bolan spinoffs.   (The one with the character that carried a full auto shotgun was a favorite)

I loved reading both Mack Bolan and Matt Helm books when I was a kid.   Many happy hours reading about the bad guys sent to their just deserts.

I read a shitton of Mac Bolan and Matt Helm books. Even as a private in the Army. They were fun. I always remember the Beretta 93R with the 3 round burst.



Matt Helm carried a Browning Hi Power and sometimes a .38 snub in an ankle rig.



I miss those books but quit buying them as I was going broke trying to keep up.

The Executioner actually provided a bonding opportunity with my Dad.

He once caught me reading Stony Man Doctrine way after bedtime and confiscated it.
When he looked at the book and realized it was Mack Bolan, he went and dug out his old Navy footlocker and brought out his collection of Mafia War books.
Didn't get much sleep at all that night.

I ended up being more of a The Guardians fan, though.

All of them in the early to mid 80's. Great books to shape a young mind with.  :)

Did an oral book report on one back in high school.

Format was always the same.

I read some of the Deathlands books.

While in the Marines and stationed in Okinawa (1980) I managed to collect like #1-#25 or so. Bought a few more after I returned to the states but Don Pendleton started to really get way out there in his latter books, and I believe a ghost writer took over so I never bought another.
Link Posted: 10/3/2012 8:52:52 PM EDT
Oh, Hell yeah! Even after I enlisted, I kept reading them.

Mack Bolan, Phoenix Force and Able Team.  I even wrote my book reports in elementary school about them.  That was a fun parent/teacher conference.

That series has a new writer, it is actually getting worth reading again.  They are even starting to use real tactics like cover fire and flanking.  Ryan's P-226 still has a safety on it though.

I think Mack Bolan got a lot of book reports done.

Yes. Boston Massacre was my favorite. "Tell them I'm here. Tell

IIRC, The Death Merchant (Richard Camellion) liked to dual wield a matched set of pistols...Berretta 93's AMT Hardballers etc.

Ahern's Deathlands character loved the shit out of Detonics.

I read a few Bolan books, but really was more of a Phoenix Force sort of guy.  Honestly, Yakov Katz is the only reason I haven't got rid of my SIG P225.

I do believe that Jerry Aherns series the "Survivalist" is the one that carried the twin Detonics.

That's right, of course.  I never read more than 1 or 2 of those and I easily get them confused with other series.

On another note, I see Ahern died a few months back.

I never heard of Mac Bolan until I started seeing them being read by the elderly black woman manager of a neighborhood gas station.  She was always reading one when I came in.  One day I asked her what that was and she showed me the cover of the current one.



" He a baaaaad motherfucker!"

Mack "the bastard" Bolan carried a Beretta Brigadier named "Belle" and an AMP .44 Automag named "Big Thunder". I liked the original mafia war books, as they were written by Don Pendleton. Later books were written by a ghost writing team.

Didn't he like using a .458 Win Mag as a sniper rifle?

Link Posted: 10/4/2012 4:32:16 AM EDT
One or two, I think one.....where he was flying overseas in a charter jet and he blew the stewardess out through a window/ Where he dropped a mortar and the head of a mercenary and the bloke disappeared? Maybe two books, I recall one where they turned a girlfriend of us into turkey meat by skinning her alive? Was that him?

Two, maybe three Destroyer books; Slave Safari, one where CURE's boss is kidnapped, and one where how and why President Ford came to power.

One Death Merchant book where they were invading an Arctic KGB torture camp.

And, by the by, just for interest sake in a same but different vein, I also read one Amanda book

Bolan has used different rifles for sniping. In the first book, he used a lever action Marlin .444. Later he used a .460 Weatherby Magnum.

I read Mac Bolan.

I didnt know until just recently that Remo Williams came from a book series., I thought it was just an AWESOME 80s movie. FWIW the movie has stood the test of time. I watched it with my boys a few weeks ago. They loved it and I enjoyed the hell out of it too.  I need to hit up the local used book store and pick up the collection.
