The powerful lord of Perugia couldn't believe his own eyes. No Living man had ever escaped the locks and guards of his torture chamber - no one, that is, except his prize prisoners, Baron Melrose, and Tizzo, the laughing Firebrand who danced his way through perilous encounters with the finest swordsmen of Europe; Tizzo, whose woodsman's ax split helmets like kindling, whose dagger could find chinks in the strongest armor. It seemed that only witchcraft could account for his amazing prowess!

Giovanpaolo, head of the mighty house of Baglioni, found the mind of Tizzo as keen as his sword; Henry of Melrose found that no friend of Tizzo died while Tizzo lived; and black-hearted Mateo Marozzo found that Tizzo ws no friend to treachery. And in one look at his flaming hair and blue eyes, the lovely Beatrice Baglioni knew why they called him the Firebrand. [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Faust, Frederick Schiller

Author Image

Frederick Schiller Faust aka Frank Austin, George Owen Baxter, Walter C Butler, George Challis, Evan Evans, Frederick Faust, John Frederick, Frederick Frost, David Manning, Peter Henry Morland, Max Brand...

Max Brand, one of America's most popular and prolific novelists and author of such enduring works as Destry Rides Again and the Doctor Kildare stories, died on the Italian front in 1944.

“No pulp writer was more prolific than Frederick Faust, who wrote nearly 15 million words under the pen name of Max Brand and seventeen others. He sold all his stories and sometimes wrote complete issues of Western Story Magazine. But Faust's most famous character was not a Western hero but a doctor—Dr. Kildare—who inspired a film of the same name plus fifteen sequels and a television series starring Richard Chamberlain.” (The Incredible Pulps: A Gallery of Fiction Magazine Art, c. 2006, p. 11).
