They said Big Tom Fuller was dumb as a post. They said he couldn’t pour rainwater out of a boot if it had instructions on the heel. They said he couldn’t hold a job if it had handles. But he was strong as an ox and mighty handy with a gun when he had to be.

Then he met Oliver Champion—a lone rider in a lawless land. Champion was following a dream, looking for a place he’d never seen. And someone like Big Tom would come in mighty handy in case of trouble. So he hired Fuller for more money than the kid ever made. And soon the two were riding a bloody trail of strange justice.—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).
