Mickey Spillane (born March 9, 1918, Brooklyn, N.Y., U.S. ï¿½ died July 17, 2006, Murrells Inlet, S.C.) U.S. writer of pulp detective fiction. His first novel, I, The Jury (1947), introduced the detective Mike Hammer, who later appeared in a series of works, including My Gun Is Quick (1950) and Black Alley (1996). Several of his Mike Hammer novels were adapted for film, most notably Kiss Me, Deadly (1952; film 1955). His other novels, all characterized by violence and sexual licentiousness, include The Deep (1961) and Day of the Guns (1964), which began a series centered on the international agent Tiger Mann. Spillane claimed to write solely for monetary gain and flouted literary taste with recurring elements of sadism that disturbed some readers, but the captivating vigor of his narrative and of his central characters brought him popular success.
