Brand, Max: Max Brand short stories. V1.5. 04 Jun 2019

Max Brand (1892-1944) is largely known for his Western books and stories. He was very prolific and didn't limit himself to Westerns. He also wrote the Doctor Kildare stories which were the basis for the TV series of that name. He also used the pen names George Owen Baxter, Walter Butler, George Challis, Evan Evans, John Frederick, Frederick Frost, David Manning, and Peter Henry Morland. See also his wikipedia entry for more information on him.

Many of these stories are from Roy Glashan's Library in Australia. The rest are from magazines on archive.org.

The formatting is what I think of as a "Slim 'n Trim" format; no images, no embedded fonts, and I've tried to design the CSS so that there is a minimum of tagging of html elements with classes. With the goal being a small epub file.

As I find more stories I'll add them to this book and update it. If you would like to be notified of updates you can click on the Thread Tools link above and select Subscribe to this Thread.

Minor aesthetic fixes. Found some all caps words and some incorrectly formatted bridgeheads.

You corrupted the name of the thread when you made the last change and renamed it to a cryptic Version 1.2. I fixed it for you. Changing the title inside the thread is not the same.

I changed the title for the thread to V1.2? Yikes, I need to pay better attention.

Thanks for catching and fixing that.

Found more stuff to miscellaneous stuff fix. I need to go through and make sure em dashes are consistent, find spelling errors, add asterisms where I left them out.
