   My Other Kentucky Authors  

On this page are two lists of my other Kentucky Authors.


The first list are authors whose works do not fully match my criteria for being on my main list of Kentucky Authors but they merit being kept in mind (and read from).


The second list are noted authors whom I have not yet located a writing of theirs which is about Kentucky -or- they have yet to write one.
