Max Brand is the pen name of author Frederick Faust. He wrote literary Westerns and a series of pulp fiction novels about a young medical intern named Dr. James Kildare. Faust and his wife, Dorothy, had three kids after marrying in 1917. In 1921, he would suffer a major heart attack that would cause him to suffer major heart problems until his dying days. Faust was born May 29 in the year 1892 in Seattle, Washington and died fifty-one years later on May 12, 1944; he died just seventeen days before he turned fifty-two.

Even still, he is one of the most prolific authors of all time, challenging Asimov and Edgar Wallace; his career output is about twenty-five million to thirty million words of literature. This includes the novels (well over five hundred) and just about as many short stories and even poetry. He could write over ten thousand words in a single weekend. New books from the man continue to be coming out, making him average three new books a year for three-quarters of a century. Faust was able to train himself to write well over ten pages a day, and always wrote original stuff, never adapting someone else’s work into a screenplay.

He grew up in California, and worked as a cowhand on a ranch that was located in the San Joaquin Valley. He went to University of California- Berkley. It was here that he would start writing; whether it be for poetry publications, publications for students, and newspapers. He did not graduate from college, but would join the Canadian Army in the year 1915, but moved to New York, deserting. The 1910s saw Faust publish to different pulp publications, and would write millions of words in the 1920s for certain publications. He was rejected from enlisting in the military to join the fight in World War I.

In the 1930s, Faust worked for Warner Brothers writing screenplays making in one week what some other writers made for the whole year. He did not like his success and found that he was made to write poetry, so much so that he would only publish poetry under his real name. He had many pen names that he wrote under, his favorite being Max Brand. He would write many series throughout his long career as an author.

Faust drew on his love of mythology to use in his fiction writing and some believe that this inspiration accounts for some of his successes as a popular writer.

It is said about Faust, by Frank Gruber (another author), who wrote “The Pulp Jungle”, and said that Faust was over six feet tall and around two hundred pounds, with what appeared to be not a single ounce of fat. It is also said that the man could drink two quarts of whiskey in a span of only eight hours.

“Calling Dr. Kildare” is the first novel in the “Dr. Kildare” series by Max Brand that came out in 1940. During, what some doctors believe is a case of Q Fever, Dr. Gillespie fires James Kildare after the two fight over how to handle it. Kildare is made to work with a nurse named Lamont and another named Byrd to stooge on them.

Fans of the novel liked the way the author writes about character and the way he sets up Kildare as a character to watch in future novels. There were some very great scenes that make readers want to read and re-read this man’s work, and cannot wait to get their hands on further installments.

Some readers did not like how the men treat the women in the novel, finding their behavior to be outdated and it is really not how men are supposed to act.

“The Secret of Dr. Kildare” is the second novel in the “Dr. Kildare” series by Max Brand that came out in 1940. A patient named Nancy wants to feel better; more than that she needs to. So much so that she would do anything to heal herself, even if it meant going to a faith healer. He knows though that to say anything to the authorities about the quack doctor she is seeing would mean that he would lose Nancy. And she would lose her, as she needs him and cannot live without him.

Fans of the novel liked the way that the novel takes readers back to another time in history when doctors were thought of as being godlike. Others liked the way the author tells the story and makes the characters the center of the story and the mystery found within the novel. It was fascinating for some to see how much things have changed in the medical field.

Some readers did not like how dated the novel was, due to the fact that there were certain offensive parts found inside, finding them politically incorrect. This novel has words and phrases that did not make sense to them, the old slang used was just hard for them to get used to.

“Dr. Kildare Takes Charge” is the third novel in the “Dr. Kildare” series by Max Brand that came out in 1941. Kildare has to decide between the lovely nurse that he loves or saving two young lovers. It makes Mary, his girlfriend, wonder what would have make him walk out on her and Dr. Gillespie without saying goodbye to her and her love, and Gillespie’s faith in him.

Fans of the novel enjoyed getting to the bottom of things in this one, finding that anyone who has enjoyed the books so far will be in for a treat this time. Some said that the novel kept them reading until the morning hours, wanting to know how the main male and main female’s story line would shake out.

Some readers did not like the novel took a long time getting going, and that they found their attention’s on other things, finding that it was easy to put this book down in favor of something else.

Dr. Kildare was adapted into many different media that include comics, radio, movies, and television. A character he created named Destry appeared in many different movies throughout the ages.

    I am an old man now, 84 years old, and I have collected books by Max Brand since I was 15 years old. This page was of great interest, and I will add it to my list of Max Brand-background
