This orangutan has learned to spearfish. Next on his agenda, learning to spear-people? Then the gorillas and chimpanzees will join them. We are doomed! Doomed, I tell you. Mars is our only hope.

ROSE ISLAND REMAINS

Then and now. This was once a tall fountain. I could not find an old roller coaster photo. The 1937 flood destroyed them.

My thriller, Dream Flyer, partially takes place here.

 

Then and now. The foundation is part of cottage. Nothing remains of the three-story hotel. People often spent the summer here. The 1937 flood destroyed it.

Ruth Shuler is with 2 children. Log cabin in the background. 1934-1943 WPA project to distribute books in eastern Kentucky on horseback.
My story is Beware the Blue Lady, part of a Bookriders anthology.

Books being distributed to remote Swedish coastal towns via boat. I believe this is a modern photo. 1934-1943 WPA project to distribute books in eastern Kentucky on horseback.

Then and now. I can imagine this place on the Fourth of July! One of the main steamboats was the Idlewild—it was renamed Belle of Louisville and is still going strong. The steamer America and the steamer Rose Island also brought huge crowds to Rose Island.
