At last, a question about TWO authors to which I know the answer off the top of my head. Mick shows up in OUT ON THE CUTTING EDGE, a great Scudder novel, in the late 80s--1989 I think, but don't hold me to it. Hawk shows up, as has been mentioned, in PROMISED LAND, in 1976--well before Mick's introduction.

I've said it before, but I recommend both of these books to anyone who hasn't read them.
