Product Description

Called the King of the Pulps, Frederick Schiller Faust, aka Max Brand, wrote nearly 400 Westerns from The Untamed to Destry Rides Again—a total of more than 220 books in this genre. Yet Max Brand also created Dr. Kildare (of books, films, and television) and wrote under twenty-one pseudonyms, in another dozen genres. This book removes the mask, with deeply personal memoirs from family, friends and fellow writers, taking us through his orphaned boyhood on the brutal ranches of California, his frustrating decades in Italy, as both a classical poet and a fast-action pulpist, to his heroic death as a war correspondent on the World War II battlefields. Faust’s life story is augmented by a complete bibliography of his work—over a thousand books, stories, and films—plus the first listing of works about Faust.

Product Description
Frederick Schiller Faust is not a name many readers recognize, but who does not know the name "Max Brand?" How many avid readers of Max Brand's western classics are familiar with the 18 other pseudonyms used by Faust? Or that the author of Destry Rides Again penned the Doctor Kildare series? Or that Faust worked as a screenwriter, often without credit, on numerous Hollywood films? Or that Faust thought of himself as a poet, writing prose, as he put it, to "pay the bills?" Or that, to pay the bills, he constantly strove to surpass his record of some 20,000 publishable words a day--and that he sold 99 percent of the fiction he wrote? The Max Brand Companion serves to tell the reader about the man as well as the author, charts the history of Faust's work and its derivations, and presents works by Faust himself indicative of the scope and range of his imagination. It is the essential guide to a major American author as well as one of the most popular writers of the 20th century. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Guide For Any Fan Of The Great Max Brand
When I picked up this book I was new to the fiction of Max Brand and wanted to know more about this genius. Brand's (Frederick Faust's) accomplishments are still legendary in the world of the written word and this volume gives you a fascinating, comprehensive overview of the man and his work. Amongst personal letters and bios and the recollections of people who knew and worked with Faust, there is, I believe, a complete list of the man's incredible output. If you think Brand (Faust) was just a western writer, guess again. He wrote in just about every genre of fiction and did it with distinction. And the fact that millions all over the world are still reading his work 60 years after his tragic death in combat during World War Two is a testament to his talent. For the long-time fan the book is a must but for the new reader like myself it provides a great introduction to one of the greatest writers of all time. Well worth the purchase price. A priceless guide. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Hero
He was a poet primarily, part of a brilliant pre-war class at UC Berkeley,and his real name was Frederick Faust.As Faust he made a small name for himself in the middle of a tumultuous period for American poetry, but it wasn't until a dime-novel pulp publisher literally locked him in an office for four hours, with a precis for a plot no more than a few sentences long, that he became a fiction writer--for he stepped out of that room with a novel of 74,000 words and a contract to write twenty more.And a new name, Max Brand, one of dozens of pseudonyms he came up with to disguise his own production.People thought there were a hundred Western writers, but really, Faust was nearly all of them.The aging Zane Grey was no competition, for after a flow start "Max Brand" wound up writing what Robert Easton claims was 30,000,000 million words--so many manuscripts that publishers kept bringing out new ones for 30 years after his death!

Faust died at D-Day, of all places, a true American war hero, and he even gave up his claim to medical treatment, urging the docs to treat other soldiers with wounds worse than his own.

He created Dr. Kildare, once a famous icon of the movies and TV, now not so widely known, but wait till the DVD revolution catches up with Kildare (and his gruff old boss with the kindly heart, Dr. Gillespie).I've heard that the MGM series will be released within the next 18 months, the 60s TV show with Richard Chamberlain too!I can't wait because those shows were always worth staying up late for.And such unusual guest stars, everyone from Basil Rathbone to Fred Astaire, Angie Dickinson to Valli.

Easton was a contemporary of Brand and knows his story inside out.He does his best to strip the obfuscations from his Byronic hero's life, and to show how, after all, he might have been a trying husband to loyal, prim Dorothy, with his demands for continual intercourse and claiming the right to have sex with other women, while she was forced to balance the budget and keep a nice home for him.The book came out in 1970, and has a few pruderies typical of the period, but not many.It was a great time for University of Oklahome Press, they just couldn't put out a bad book, and several of the books advertised on the back jacket as "Also of Interest" remain of interest today--Louis Mertins' invaluable record of Robert Frost's "table talk" (really his walking talk); Bruce Kellner's early biography of Carl Van Vechten, still the best account of that puzzling man; and Born In a Bookshop, the memoirs of Vincent Starrett, okay, this last one all charm and no substance.But still a fine roll call, no? ...
