An Interview with Ed McBain

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.

Interesting interview, Bill. Maybe it's just my perception, but he seemed touchy, defensive and less than forthcoming. I've read other interviews where he seemed much more relaxed.
