Television writer William Link is a longtime magic buff. He wrote Doug Henning's Broadway show Merlin; created Blacke's Magic; and wrote magic-themed episodes of Burke's Law and Columbo (all co-written with Richard Levinson). Over the years, he's been awarded several Edgar awards by the Mystery Writers of America (which was co-founded by Clayton Rawson, who said "Crime Doesn't Pay -- Enough").
He was just named a Grand Master by the MWA, which is a pretty big deal in that world.

And they’ll deserve every bit of it, they’ve created some great shows.
Funny how interest in mystery and magic intertwine. I looked over the MWA Grandmaster awards and saw half of my favorite authors, Stout, Queen, Carr, Hoch, Block and especially Westlake.
