Mickey Spillane at 81
a report by Graham Barnfield Mickey Spillane at 81: A Synopsis of The Guardian Interview with Mickey Spillane, July 29 1999, National Film Theatre, London (some quotations are paraphrases)
'Spillane gives me the feeling of hearing a military band in a public park.' - Ayn Rand 'I used to write fast - now my rear end gets tired. I'm not full of vinegar anymore.' - Mickey Spillane Specific points re. the 1950s:
  • Spillane says owed much of his success to Roscoe Fawcett of Gold Medal books. The pair of them were dismayed to see that the fledgling paperbacks market was mainly taken up with classics reprints, and started writing directly for paperback (softcover) publication.
  • When asked about his influences, Spillane replied 'dollars'. 'Authors write, writers get paid' was his aphorism for the evening.
  • When asked about the Cold War, he replied 'Communism went out with the wall.' To paraphrase, his approach was 'back then we thought it was a real threat, but ten years ago it collapsed instantly. It wasn't the real enemy, there's no real enemy left except terrorists and Arabs. There's just no stability anymore!'
It looks as if Mike Hammer and Tiger Mann were wasting their time after all!

The Case for Mickey Spillane
Mickey Spillane, who died earlier this week, was a much better writer than the mainstream critics gave him credit for being. As is well known, his books sold by the millions, and he was the best-selling mystery writer ever in the hardboiled school. The AP story on Spillane's life and works provides a good introduction to the man and his most famous creation, the tough detective Mike Hammer.
Spillane's books were definitely not intellectuals' favorites, but they had much good in them. The stories in the best of his novels are taut, plausible though melodramatic, and involving. His prose was much better than critics gave him credit for—what they claimed to like in Hemingway and James M. Cain, they despised in Spillane. Spillane took after the first hardboiled writer, Carroll John Daly, whom critics likewise disparaged for the evident right-of-center political views in his works (although, as in Spillane's case, they focused their complaints on a "sledgehammer" writing style, which is no more tru of Daly than of most hardboiled writers). Spillane's characterizations were largely just functional, not the kind of morally ambiguous kinds the critics have preferred since World War II. But the characters did spring to life on the page, and the carried the stories well. The stories were what fascinated readers, and Spillane was a born storyteller.

"How c-could you?" she gasped.
I only had a moment before talking to a corpse, but I got it in.
"It was easy," I said. The previous version of this site began with the first line from the first Mike Hammer book, I, The Jury . The lines above are from the end of the same book. You could read plenty into that, but there's really a good reason why I chose to begin with it. I recently watched an old interview with Mickey Spillane. In the interview, he was asked about the sex and violence in his books, more specifically, about the ending to I, The Jury . He explains how the scene operates on many levels, that it wasn't just some lurid confrontation between a woman killer and the man sworn to avenge her victim. That segment of the interview ends with Spillane repeating the last line, " It was easy ", stretching out each word. This, to me, is the essence of Mike Hammer and the appeal of Mickey Spillane's writing. Mike Hammer is a real "never let 'em see ya sweat" kind of guy, whose strength lies not only in his fists and his gun, but also in his moral convictions and sense of justice , with no exceptions.

Mickey Spillane (1918-2006) - pseudonym of Frank Morrison Spillane American thriller writer, master of "hard boiled" style peppered with sex and sadism. Spillane is best-known for his private detective Mike Hammer, who appeared in his first published book I, THE JURY (1947). The hardback edition did not sell well, but the paperback became a world-wide phenomenon. In the character of Hammer, the most chauvinist avenger among classical private eyes, Spillane created a dark counterpart to the knightly Philip Marlowe. "The biggest part of the joke is the punch line, so the biggest part of a book should be the punch line, the ending. People don't read a book to get to the middle, they read a book to get to the end and hope that the ending justifies all the time they spent reading it. So what I do is, I get my ending and, knowing what my ending is going to be, then I write to the end and have the fun of knowing where I'm going but not how I'm going to get there." (Spillane in Speaking of Murder , ed. by Ed Gorman and Martin H. Greenberg, 1998)

(Frank Morrison Spillane)
"Those big-shot writers could never dig the fact that there are more salted peanuts consumed than caviar."
Mickey Spillane "Anyone who doesn't recognize Spillane's importance is an idiot."
Max Allan Collins Frank Morrison Spillane was a Brooklyn kid, born on March 9, 1918, the only child of Catherine Anne and John Joseph Spillane, an Irish-American bartender who nicknamed him "Mickey." He passed away July 17, 2006 at his home in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, leaving behind a wife, a couple of ex-wives, four children, possibly as many as 200 million copies of his books in print and plenty of satisfied customers. The most popular of those books, of course, feature Spillane's hard-boiled gumshoe/avenger Mike Hammer , the New York eye whose every case turned into a personal vendetta that following a suitable number of trysts with beautiful and generally willing babes and raw scenes of brutality inevitably ended with Hammer serving up his own kind of justice, usually out of the smoking barrel of a .45. The critics may have sneered at Spillane's sex-and-violence-filled romps (and admittedly, sometimes it was difficult to tell where the sex ended and the violence began)

Lou Krasky / AP
Mickey Spillane, the macho mystery writer who wowed millions of readers with the shoot-'em-up sex and violence of gumshoe Mike Hammer, died Monday at 88.
CHARLESTON, S.C. - Mickey Spillane created tough guy detective Mike Hammer, whose savage, shoot-’em-up exploits wowed millions and influenced Hollywood’s film noir movement. But he considered himself a writer, not an author. Books by writers, he said, are the ones that sell. “This is an income-generating job,” he told The Associated Press in a 2001 interview. “Fame was never anything to me unless it afforded me a good livelihood.” The macho mystery writer died Monday at 88. Spillane’s wife, Jane, told The (Myrtle Beach) Sun News that he had cancer. Visitation was scheduled for Saturday at the Goldfinch Funeral Home, and a memorial service will be held July 29 at the Jehovah’s Witnesses Kingdom Hall near Spillane’s Murrells Inlet home, about 80 miles northeast of Charleston.
