"Nobody reads a mystery to get to the middle. They read it to get to the end. If it's a letdown, they won't buy anymore.
The first page sells that book. The last page sells your next book."

"I'm a commercial writer, not an author. Margaret Mitchell was an author. She wrote one book."

"I have no fans. You know what I got? Customers. And customers are your friends."

— Mickey Spillane

"My favorite [modern novelist] is Mickey Spillane ... because he is primarily a moralist. In a primitive form, the form of a detective novel, he presents the conflict of good and evil, in terms of black and white. He does not present a nasty gray mixture of indistinguishable scoundrels on both sides. He presents an uncompromising conflict. As a writer, he is brilliantly expert at the aspect of literature which I consider most important: plot structure."
philosopher Ayn Rand [1905-82], Playboy Interview, March 1964

          Frank Morrison 'Mickey' Spillane was born 9 March 1918 in Brooklyn, New York and raised in Elizabeth, New Jersey. He started writing in high school and worked a variety of jobs, including a stint as a trampoline artist, knife thrower, and 'cannon fodder' for the Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus. He enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Corps and served as a fighter pilot and instructor. He worked undercover for the F.B.I. to crack a narcotics ring which became the subject of his 1952 novel "Kiss Me, Deadly".
          Spillane married during the war, and after return to civilian life, he decided to build a house for his family. The story goes that in order to purchase the land that he wanted, he wrote "I, The Jury" in 19 days and sent the manuscript to E.P. Dutton. The combined sales of the 1947 hardcover and the 1948 Signet paperback was six and a half million copies in the United States alone. The novel introduced Spillane’s most famous character, hardboiled detective Mike Hammer, followed by a dozen more novels in Spillane's lifetime and six posthumous Mike Hammer novels completed by Max Allan Collins based on Spillane's outlines. The Hammer novels did well on screen, with multiple movies and two television series.
          Spillane had overflown Murrells Inlet, South Carolina during the war, and he built a house there circa 1971. The house was destroyed by Hurricane Hugo in 1989, but Spillane rebuilt it. His third wife lived with him there from 1983 until his death.

          Although his books were by then out of print, he was named a Mystery Writers of America Grand Master in 1995. In 2001, the New American Library began reissuing his works, and after his death, friend & literary executor Max Allan Collins began the task of editing and completing Spillane’s unpublished typescripts.
          Mickey Spillane died on 17 July 2006 at home of pancreatic carcinoma. He was considered the king of the pulp novelists in the post-World War II period, and sold an estimated 200 million copies globally. In 1980, seven of the top 15 all-time bestselling fiction books published in the U.S. had been written by Spillane. He was inducted into the South Carolina Academy of Authors Literary Hall of Fame at Coastal Carolina University in April 2012.
