Old Faithful Plot Book Trailer Links To Pompeii:
The eruption of Vesuvius on August 24, 79AD was one of the most famous natural disasters of all time. It buried ancient Pompeii and Herculaneum under clouds of ash and mud flows from the still active volcano in southern Italy south of Rome along the Bay of Naples. It was so famous that even Adolf Hitler got the idea that he wanted to create a modern day Pompeii in America of all places. He picked not only a volcano but a super volcano with the power to destroy not only a town but half a continent. He wanted to get America out of his way permanently so that they could not interfere in any future war. Read about how he did this in the upcoming Edward Ware Thrillers at War novel Old Faithful Plot. Pictures of the Pompeii eruption will be featured in the book trailer soon to be posted on the website: http://www.edwardwarethrillers.org.

Dark Dream Sequence In Old Faithful Plot Features Pompeii:
What on earth do Yellowstone National Park and Pompeii have in common? One is out West in America at 8000 feet above sea level surrounded by the Rocky Mountains and the other is in Italy along the coast on the Bay of Naples at sea level. One is there nowadays. One used to be there 2000 years ago in ancient Roman times. One is sparsely populated except by summer crowds of tourists. It is in a rural area far away from civilization. The other used to be an urban center of some size.
Both are dominated by volcanoes. That is the big similarity. Vesuvius was an active volcano in ancient times and is still an active volcano nowadays. It erupted during World War 2. There have been tremors and earthquakes since then. Yellowstone is dominated by all sorts of minor earthquakes that can barely be felt by the tourists. However, even more so than Vesuvius it is a supervolcano of enormous proportions and almost unimaginable destructive potential.
In the upcoming Edward Ware Thrillers at War novel Old Faithful Plot these similarities between Yellowstone and Pompeii have captured Adolf Hitler’s attention. He is chasing his enemy operative Colonel Sir Edward Ware and his fiancee Dora Benley all the way to the Rocky Mountains to capture the elusive Lawrence maps, key to winning the next war. He threatens the couple that if they don’t hand over the maps they are hiding from him he will attempt to blow up one of the geysers and Yellowstone itself to start a giant volcanic eruption that will remove America from the map and make sure she can’t interfere in any war.
But in a dark nightmare sequence Dora sees the ash flying about as it did in Pompeii two thousands years ago. She relives that horrible eruption and wonders what mankind is destined to suffer at the hands of the tyrannical Fuhrer.

Yellowstone the SuperVolcano Stars In Old Faithful Plot:
There are only three supervolcanoes in the world, and Yellowstone is one of them. The geysers in the park have been erupting more frequently than usual. There have been earthquake tremors all over Wyoming. They could presage the coming eruption of the supervolcano that has not erupted in seventy thousand years.
If the volcano erupts again it will kill an estimated eighty-seven thousand people. It will quickly make two-thirds of the United States uninhabitable. Clouds of ash will block out the sunlight in much of the country. That will start to affect the flora and fauna beneath the dark pall suddenly cast over it. The eruption will be two thousand times as powerful as the 1980 eruption of nearby Mt. St. Helens which managed to throw ash into five Canadian provinces and eleven states. This sounds like the apocalypse.
Hitler saw all this coming. He decided to send his most trust Nazi agents to Yellowstone National Park to see if they could jigger an eruption of Old Faithful. Edward and Dora must prevent him. All this drama forms the subject of the upcoming Old Faithful Plot soon to be published by Cheops Books LLC.
While they are hiding out from Dora’s husband at the Old Faithful Lodge in 1933, Dora and Edward are also hiding Lawrence maps that Churchill has given them and which Hitler would do anything to get his hands on. Enter Helga and Herr von Wessel, Hitler’s top spies. They warn Colonel Sir Edward Ware and Dora that either they hand over the top secret maps, key to world domination, or they will blow up Yellowstone National Park. They will turn the famous geyser basin into volcanic rubble – and the rest of America, too, which would be buried in volcanic ash just like Pompeii. And if that doesn’t work they have an even darker plot up their sleeves, one that would change history itself.

In Pursuit of Pliny the Elder: The Port Of Ostia
The modern port city of Citavecchia is far different from the ancient Roman port of Ostia, which is much closer to the city of Rome. On his trips around the Roman World by sea Pliny the Elder would have come to Ostia often. Ostia is an often neglected site among tourists but apparently you can get as good an idea about life in ancient Rome at Ostia as you can in either Rome or the more famous ancient city of Pompeii. Why? No one else goes there! And crowds are prohibitive. It might be easier to imagine the author of the Natural History sailing off here than in more southern ports. He probably left from here to sail off to his governorship in Trier, the administrative center for the province of Germania, or Germany. So you can look for a special scene where Pliny the Elder and his entourage disembark in Ostia to keep their dinner date with the Emperor Tiberius before heading off to his villa along the coast near Herculaneum and Pompeii, which gives it name to the Cheops Books, LLC historical thriller, the Vesuvius Plot.

On The Road Again: Pompeii

Come summer will you see Cheops Books LLC at the most famous archaeological excavation at Pompeii on the Amalfi Coast in Italy? Will you be there yourself?
Adolf Hitler came up with the idea that he wanted to change the timeline of history. He imagined that he found a time tunnel that led from volcano to volcano from the supervolcano at Yellowstone National Park in the United Sates all the way to Vesuvius looming over the Bay of Naples right next to Pompeii. He wanted to send his most trusted henchmen, Herr and Helga von Wessel, back in time to 79AD. They were to rouse up an ancient lynch mob from Germany who had followed the former Roman governor all the way to southern Italy where he kept a villa. The former governor had written a nasty track about Germans villifying them. Thus began a 2000 year old tradition of blaming Germans for everything which Hitler wanted to nip in the bud. That way history would be changed, Germans would become more powerful sooner, and the Germans would win World War 1.
Who was this governor? His name was Pliny the Elder, the author of the Natural History, the first encyclopedia, who also wrote the Germania. According to legend, he was supposedly killed when the volcano erupted, but Hitler was not taking any chances. And Hitler wanted to get hold of the manuscript of the Germania which Hitler did not want to survive the man’s assassination.
All this action takes place in Pompeii during the eruption of Vesuvius. So it would be a great place to join Pliny the Elder and all sorts of villains for the high point of the action in Vesuvius Plot, the next installment of Edward Ware Thrilers at War soon to be published by Cheops Books, LLC.
