Mike Hammer, that is. Murrells Inlet, on the South Carolina coast, is putting up signage on US 17 Business, proclaiming it the Mickey Spillane 17 Waterfront Highway.
This was Spillane’s last home: he’d flown over the Grand Strand as an Army Air Corps pilot in World War II, and vowed that he’d live there some day.
The Mickey, as it’s inevitably going to be called, runs for three miles along the coast, leaving Georgetown County at Garden City, near the projected terminus for an eventual extension (like when hell freezes over) of Interstate 74.
