Karl G. Larew, Ph.D., is a retired history professor (still teaching part-time) at Towson University, near Baltimore. He has served as a civilian historian in the Army and as an Army intelligence officer. His special research/teaching field is military history, especially WWII, WWI, and Korea, but he also has published in the fields of intellectual history, popular culture, music history, and comic book history. He has published many articles, book reviews, and encyclopedia entries, plus one fantasy short story, two books of Larew genealogy (featuring a Civil War ancestor), and a novel about college life in the 1950s: "Candles in the Window"(1999). Recently he has published (through Amazon.com's CreateSpace and Kindle)a trilogy--three novels of family saga covering the eras of WWII, Korea, and Vietnam, featuring Pearl Harbor investigations, combat in WWII and Korea, adultery, child molestation, post-partum depression, McCarthyite anti-Red witch hunting, Soviet spying, 1950s-60s fears of homosexuality, and the anti-Vietnamese War movement. These books are entitled "Paul, Betty, and Pearl"; "Daddypaul and the Yo-yo War"; and "Gran'paul's Family." He has also recently published, again through Amazon.com and Kindle, two spoofs on vampire/werewolf/James Bond stories entitled "Bad Vampires" and "Nazi Werewoofs." And, more recently, he has published a new edition of "Candles in the Window" (see above), also on Amazon.com and Kindle, and a new edition of his Larew genealogy (1st volume); most recently, he has published "The Mask of Freya" (a novel about pagan nature worshippers in the Revolution of 1848) on Amazon and Kindle. Also, even more recently, "The Philistine Warrior," a novel which in large part is a retelling of the Samson and Delilah legend, but from the point of view of a Philistine warrior; now on Amazon.com and Kindle. Finally: "Zoombies from Planet X," the final in my spoof triology (see above), also in Amazon and Kindle. But wait! My spoof trilogy now has a 4th volume! That's right--count them! It's called "Ghost-toasties" and features the same fearless crew of Good Vampires! Karl lives in southern Pennsylvania with his wife, a retired history professor, and their cat.
