Brand, Max: Alcatraz v2 14 may 2009
Frederick Schiller Faust (1892-1944) was an American fiction author known primarily for his thoughtful and literary Westerns. Faust wrote mostly under pen names, and today he is primarily known by one, Max Brand. Others include George Owen Baxter, Martin Dexter, Evin Evans, David Manning, Peter Dawson, John Frederick, and Pete Morland. Faust was born in Seattle. He grew up in central California and later worked as a cowhand on one of the many ranches of the San Joaquin Valley. Faust attended the University of California, Berkeley, where he began to write frequently. During the 1910s, Faust started to sell stories to the many emerging pulp magazines of the era. In the 1920s, Faust wrote furiously in many genres, achieving success and fame, first in the pulps and later in the upscale "slick" magazines. His love for mythology was, however, a constant source of inspiration for his fiction and his classical and literary inclinations.
Here are the ePub and Mobi versions of one of the greatest westerns of all time.
PS: The great cover comes right from the Manybooks version of this book. You did a good job there, dear Manybooks crew!

But whatever were Brand's parents thinking when they named their son!? I mean, they did have the decency not to name him John Wolf Goethe Faust, but still.

I just read "Riders Of The Silences" the other day. Quick read, not bad, but probably not Brand's best work.
