Pulp #51 -- January 20, 2014

The cover of the October, 1934 Star Western features a story by Max Brand. Frederick Schiller Faust wrote more than 500 novels using many pen names, including Max Brand. He wrote for many pulp magazines and was particularly admired for his westerns.  He created the popular characters Harrison Destry and Doctor James Kildare.  He worked in the movie industry.  He wanted to be a poet. 

Despite his age and chronic heart disease, he became a war correspondent during World War II.  In 1944, Faust died from shrapnel wounds in Italy.
