Donald Eugene "Don" Pendleton (12 December 1927 – 23 October 1995) was an author of fiction and nonfiction books, best known for his creation of American hero The Executioner - Mack Bolan - and all the books in our fantastic collection are from this series. The best-selling The Executioner series made the men's action-adventure genre popular, and Pendleton was known as the father of action adventure, a term he coined. The Mack Bolan novels penned by Pendleton revolved around Bolan's one man war against the Mafia. In the pulp tradition, Pendleton's Mack Bolan was larger than life, responsible for killing literally hundreds of mobsters over the course of his original thirty-eight novels. Also in the pulp tradition, he left a trademark "calling card", a marksman's medal, wherever he struck.
