Mickey Spillane ( Frank Morrison Spillane , Frank Morrison Spillane - Mickey Spillane ) March 9, 1918 - July 17, 2006 $$ 0 $$ American writer, author popular works in the "cool detective" genre. He wrote about 20 novels with a circulation of over 225 million copies. Born March 9, 1918 in Brooklyn, New York. He came to literature early - he began to create his first works, while still a schoolboy. At the beginning of his writing career, he was published under various pseudonyms, including as Frank Morrison . He briefly studied at the University of Kansas City, later moved to New York, where he realized himself as a comic book writer. He is one of the co-authors of such famous heroes in the United States as Captain Mervel and Captain America. During the war he served as an Air Force instructor. At the end of the war, he settled in Greenwood, Mississippi, but returned to New York in 1946. He bought land, but there was no money to build a house. Then in a few days he wrote "I myself rule my own judgment" (I, The Jury, 1947), introducing the private detective Mike Hammer to the readers. Soon Mike Hammer became very popular with the readership - despite the attacks of critics who accused the writer of the excessive cruelty of his works, each new book by Spillane from the cycle about Mike Hammer sold out in huge numbers, was repeatedly filmed in films and on television. After the release of the seventh novel, there was a ten-year break. There were many rumors about the reasons for his disappearance from the literary scene. Some attributed his silence to joining the sect of Jehovah`s Witnesses. But there was no silence. From time to time, Spillane`s stories appeared in magazines, new comics came out. Spillane devoted most of these 10 years to new hobbies. He worked as an acrobat in a circus (which is close to L.

Orlova`s well-known number in cinema - "I will go out of a cannon into the sky"); participated in auto racing; searched for treasures on sunken ships; acted in films. Publication of new novels began in 1961.

Spillane himself played the role of a detective in films (Ring of Fear, 1954). Films based on his novels have become classics, including Kiss Me Deadly (1955) and The Girl Hunters (1963, directed by Roy Rowland). In the film "The Girl Hunters" Spillane played his own character, Hammer (and this is one of the rarest cases in history when the author plays the role of a character created by him). He also appeared as a writer in the television series about Colombo. In the 60s, on the wave of anti-communism, a series was written about the super agent of the American special services, Tiger Man. In 1965, Spillane married a second time. His chosen one was Sherri Malinou, a fashion model who posed nude on the cover of his 1972 book The Erection Set (dedicated to her). In the 70s, there was a new break in creativity. The writer devoted these years to advertising “Lite Beer”, starring in a series of commercials. The advertisement was named the most successful television campaign in history, and Spillane`s name became widely known in the public, and this ensured steady sales for his books in modest paperbacks. In addition to detective fiction, Spillane wrote several books for older children, and in the mid-90s returned to creating comic book plots. In 1996, one of the last books about Mike Hammer came out, "Black Alley". Since 1954, the writer has lived in South Carolina. Died July 17, 2006 at the age of 88 from pancreatic cancer. After his death, his friend and literary executor, Max Alan Collins, edits and publishes Spillane`s unpublished typewritten manuscripts, incl. with Mike Hammer - novel "The Goliath Bone" (2008). Mickey Spillane`s name is on a par with such recognized masters of the American detective as Dashil Hammett and Raymond Chandler . Spillane`s tremendous success is usually credited with the successful mixture of his blunt language, the harshness of the characters and the abundance of erotic scenes. His books, as Raymond Chandler put it, can be called "a mixture of violence and blatant pornography." The nickname stuck behind him - "Phenomenon" of the book industry of the 20th century. The top ten most popular American books in 70 years (published between 1895 and 1965) listed seven of Spillane`s novels. “It`s a shame!” A New York writer turned to the writer. “You`re lucky I haven`t written three more novels,” Mickey retorted. His work was awarded the Shamus Award from the Private Investigative Writers Association and the title of Grand Master from the American Detective Writers Association in 1995 Detective. Declaration of love , Max Allan Collins. Foreword , Wikipedia .
