Happy birthday, Arthur Machen, Nicolas Freeling, and Max Allan Collins.

H.P. Lovecraft inspiration Arthur Machen was born today in 1863; the late Nicolas Freeling, the creator of Inspector Piet Van der Valk, would have marked his 80th birthday today; and the ever-energetic Max Allan Collins turns 59 today. Collins, the author of Road to Perdition and many other works, will release Black Hats under the pseudonym Patrick Culhane in April 2007, which features the intriguing combination of Wyatt Earp, Bat Masterson, and Al Capone.
