Nice link, thank you!
It pretty much tells his entire story - I would also like to know a little more about his coasters though, so I guess I'll have to buy the book anyway. :o)

I wonder if today's plug-and-play woody design technology couldn't be used to re-create his coasters in safely rideable versions. *** Edited 7/2/2006 7:59:39 PM UTC by superman***

Thanks,glad you enjoyed it.

The legends of terror book is great,it has some good pictures of his coasters.

It is amazing what he designed before computer software was born,VERY smart man.

I have a copy of the book which isn't in perfect shape but it is an interesting read with great pictures of amazing coasters.

Mine is in great shape and I think I have a second copy somewhere. Wish I could find it because I hear they fetch quite a bit of money on eBay.

coasterqueenTRN's avatar ^That is one of my favorite books. The guy was insane! Try Amazon.

I DID have a copy of it but it somehow got lost the last time I moved. Yikes!
