Mickey Spillane's Me, Hood! contains two novellas and a short story, each published in Cavalier magazine between 1959 and 1962.
The cops get wise and recruit the toughest hood around to lay down the law on the city's criminal element...without having to go though the inconvenience of the justice system.
Kick It or Kill
After surgery, Kelly Smith is sent to a small town in the Adirondacks to convalesce. Instead of the peace he seeks, he learns that a rich creep named Simpson likes to get the local girls hooked on drugs and subject them to his perversions. Smith decides to track down Simpson and teach him a lesson, even if it means shooting his way through the wall of thugs in his employ.
