Personal Quote:

I feel that I've been ignored over the years. I think I'm a pretty good writer.

Trivia:

His "87th Precinct" novels--using his "Ed McBain" pseudonym--were the inspiration for the TV series Hill Street Blues (1981), as well as being, more directly, the basis of another series, "87th Precinct", in 1961. See more »
