Bookreporter.com - Author Profile: Ed McBain: "You published your first book, FIND THE FEATHERED SERPENT, in 1952"
This interview appeared in 2000. It's a pretty good one, and I'm surprised to learn that Find the Feathered Serpent was Hunter's first book. (The Evil Sleep appeared the same year.) I bought Find the Feathered Serpent new, so I suppose I got in on the beginning of Hunter's career. And a great one it was.
