Silas Durfee had come up against a lot of outlaws as a Texas Ranger. But he had never encountered one as cold and cruel as Spot Lester—a man who would as soon slit a throat as swat a fly.

Lester had a grudge against Silas Durfee. Durfee had fouled up a special plan of Lester’s once and Lester just couldn’t let that lie. Lester schemed and plotted and dreamed of Durfee’s death until he had him right where he wanted him—trapped in Torture Canyon where the infernal heat was enough to turn a man’s brain to smoke and the only way out was through a hail of rifle fire.—Back Cover.

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).
