Profile Information

Something About Me and My Book:
I am a semi-retired history professor at Towson University. B.A., University of Connecticut, 1959, Ph.D., Yale University, 1964. Sometime civilian historian in the Army and sometime Army intelligence officer. Specializing in military history and philosophy of history. I have 8 books out there, self-published. The one I want most to push is "Candles in the Window," first published in 1999, revised and reissued in 2010. It is a psychological study of love and sex, with some nostalgia, some coming-of-age, and some non-genre romance. A small number of college students at the University of Connecticut in the 1950s, feeling the generation gap, form an artificial family centered on a beautiful, extremely talented, but enigmatic girl nicknamed"Silky." The students see her in different ways, leaving "truth" up for grabs. A priest with homosexual urges provides a counterpoint to the students' story.
Five other books come in two sets (though each can be read alone). They are: a trilogy-family saga, set in WWII, Korean and Vietnam eras; and two spoofs on James Bond, vampire/werewolf stories. I have just reissued my 1975 book of Larew genealogy based in part on the Civil War diary of my great grandfather; plus a new book, "The Mask of Freya," a fantasy story about pagans in the French Revolution of 1848. And recently: The Philistine Warrior, about Samson and Delilah and more, much much more. And now--the third volume of my Good Vampires series has appeared! It's called "Zoombies from Planet X." Zoombie are mummies on roller skates. The Good Vampires must stop the creation of zoombies (and the revival of mummies), twin plagues concocted by the evil Son of Elmer. On Amazon and Kindle. This volume may be read as a stand alone, but better to read the first two volumes beforehand--namely, "Bad Vampires" and "Nazi Werewoofs." 4th Volume just out! "Ghost-toasties," a stand-alone companion to the Good Vampire series--Bad Vampire Ghost Mr Very Big tries to blow up the world!

Recently I've published two novellas (short novels): "Puss in Combat Boots," about a reluctant cat soldier who's sucked into the Cat Secret Service and its fight against the foreign dictator, Dirty Rat. The second novella is "Catari." Despite its title, it's not about cats. "Catari" is an Italian deminutive for "Catherine." This novella is a murder mystery, ghost story, and psychological study all rolled into one. Kindle has given both books very favorable reviews. Go to, look under Books, and my name, Karl Larew.

   Moreover, I've recently published a collection of my poetry, "Ready or Not," and a collection of my short stories, "Pre-soul Jacky and other Stories." Both in Kindle and paperback (Kindle for 99 cents each!); go to name. Karl Larew

  Look here on Book Marketing Netword under my name for descriptions.  In brief: four spoofs on James Bond/vampire/werewolf/zombie/ghost stories; one book about college sex/psychological lives in the 1950s; and a trilogy about an Army family in WWII, Korean War Era, and Cold War/Vietnamese War Era (each can be read separately).  See for reviews of the first of the trilogy ("Paul, Betty, and Pearl") and the four spoofs ("Bad Vampires" and "Nazi Werewoofs"). Also, a tale of…
