Over the years, some of original titles in the English edition have changed. The reprinted English editions with different titles from the original include:

Cut Out = Zero Hour in Phnom Penh
Enemies of Memory = Tokyo Joe
Saint Anne = Red Sky Falling

Non-English editions also can cause confusion. Like most writers, I have no control over the decision of a foreign language publisher to change the original English title. Most of the time, that wouldn't matter, as the new title is in a foreign language. But sometimes the foreign publisher uses a different English language title on the foreign language edition to broaden the international image of the book.

Here are some examples. The original English language title is on the left, and the new English title of the foreign language edition on the right.

Cold Hit = Nana Plaza (German)
Spirit House = Kick Boxing in Nirvana (Spanish)
Spirit House = Bangkok Blues (Norwegian)

Please note also that the foreign editions of the books often have different titles. Among those that cause frequent confusion is the German edition, namely Nana Plaza (translation of Cold Hit). A Spanish edition to be released in July 2008 of Spirit House will be retitled by the Spanish publisher as Kick Boxing in Nirvana, and the Norwegian edition Spirit House is retitled Bangkok Blues.

When you buy a book, it is a good idea to double check the publisher's page. That page will have information as to whether there was previous title that is different from the one on the cover.

Memory ManifestoMemory Manifesto

Memory Manifesto’s 35 short chapters reveal Christopher G. Moore’s personal map of the Cambodia labyrinth. Moore worked as journalist, novelist, and essayist which took him through T-3 prison, Khmer Rouge minefields, border refugee camps in the company of activists, artists, film makers, musicians, writers and unsavory characters. The overall effect is a powerful vision of one writer’s memory shaped by the forces of myth-making, illusions, history and imagination. More>>


Calvino investigates the death of a friend, a Canadian painter. The medical examiner finds the young man has ingested an exit drug, and the police verdict of suicide seems justified. But in Bangkok appearances have a habit of deceiving. Sometimes jumpers are given a leg up in their leap to the next life. Fingering the helper can be a risky business, and for Calvino this promises to be one of those times. More>>
