Before Zorro and the Lone Ranger there was The Shadow created by Max Brand. For many, Max Brand is the quintessential teller of Western tales. What some may not know is that Max Brand was just one of the pen names chosen by Frederick Faust, a prolific writer who sometimes turned out 12,000 words in a weekend. Further while we remember him as Max Brand he also created the character of Destry and Dr. Kildare (which made him enormously wealthy). Faust was intrigued by myths and that may be one reason for his development of The Shadow, a mysterious figure who could out draw anyone and made other men tremble. There is only one clue to his identify and that is his horse - he rides a chestnut horse with black points. There are, I believe 10 books in the Silvertip series with THE SHADOW OF SILVER TIP being the last. In this tale The Shadow proves himself to be quite a poker player when he wins all of Tom Converse's money. Obviously, that's nothing to be taken lately so Converse embarks on a chase that will eventually reveal the true identify of The Shadow. Buck Schirner, a popular character actor, has narrated many of Brand's books (Blackie and Red, etc). His voice is the one quite often associated with this author's stories and rightly so because he brings an authenticity and expert's nuance to his characterization. If you're a Western fan, here's one for you - enjoy! - Gail Cooke
