Happy birthday, William Campbell Gault.

Versatile mystery writer William Campbell Gault, whose work spanned the pulp magazines, adult novels (he won an Edgar for Don't Cry for Me and a Shamus for The Cana Diversion), and children's novels, was born today in 1910. He died in 1995. Ross Macdonald dedicated The Blue Hammer to him.

And also of note: the late Mickey Spillane would have turned 89 today.
