Abstract

My novel, Fishers of Men, is a historical fiction account in which 23-year-old Henry Fisher, a present-day medical student, explores the urban legends surrounding the abandoned Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Louisville, Kentucky, which handled one of the largest tuberculosis outbreaks in world history in the 1920s and 30s and is now allegedly among the most haunted places in the world.'
