Author Bio for Faust, Frederick Schiller

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).
