My heart is still pounding furiously as the island drops out of sight behind me. Will my auto-gyro have enough gas to make it to the nearby island of Tanarowa? I can't bring myself to care. Not after what I've witnessed in the mad doctor's accursed lab, nestled deep in the crater of an extinct South Seas volcano.

Can it be that it was just three days ago that I arrived at the docks of that fetid jungle lair, full of vim and academic curiosity, chatting excitedly with my colleagues from around the scientific community? I am the only one of that august delegation to escape. I leave behind my peers, now chained to desks in the mad doctor's R&D department, condemned to a waking death as the doctor harnesses their brainpower for his own evil ends.

But I shed not a tear, as I angle the ultra-light due North, for those I left behind. I am not leaving my friends behind. My friends died long before they were led into the dark recesses of the volcano complex. Those that now toil for the doctor are merely things. Things that once were men.

Design Resume

Parlaying a background in rock & roll set design into a career in themed exhibits and attractions, Dennis Larkins has established a significant body of work over the course of his two decades in the themed entertainment industry.

Dennis was able to apply his theatrical experience to a job in the Disneyland Parade Float Shop, where all those nifty floats you see making their way down Main St. three to five times a day are constructed. Not long after landing that job, Dennis moved up to a design job as a Walt Disney Imagineer, working in the creative think tank established by Walt himself to facilitate the creation of a themed empire. He later went on to work for a diverse spectrum of theming outfits, both on a freelance and in-house basis, from high-tech special effects house SpectraF/X to entertainment conglomerate MCA/Universal to helping launch Warner Bros. Studio Stores as a theme designer to acting as creative producer for Sega GameWorks.
