Description:

He was a raw kid until he fitted the stolen Colt .45 into his holster. That gun had killed twenty men. Now he stood alone at the saloon bar, with every man’s eyes on him, and faced down the legendary killer from whom he stole the gun.

In that moment the Colt made his reputation. But while he felt the worn handle warming his palm, a cold chill was in his guts. He had stolen the gun but he didn't own it. The gun owned him... wherever he went... whatever he did... for good or for evil...—Back cover. [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).
