Christopher G. Moore Updates: 12 June 2015

Dear Readers,

This weekend, kick back, and read my essay titled Dis-Consent and Political Legitimacy. I am seeking to put together the pieces of the puzzle. Send me a note about your views. I like reading what others think about these matters. From my side, there is evidence that we are looking at a great transition in the way we view voting, elections, and political legitimacy. If the past is a guide, such transitions happen over long time frames and are often messy. Thailand has become one country (among a number of others) where these issues are in the forefront of many people’s minds.

In my last book of essays, The Age of Dis-Consent examine social, cultural and political issues. And as I am a crime fiction author, I also like writing about publishing, crime novels, and the literary scene.

Chad A. Evan’s Vincent Calvino’s World is on schedule to come out the end of August/early September. The Vincent Calvino series has charted the social, economic and political changes as Southeast Asia countries move from the analogue to digital world. The essay about political legitimacy continues this exploration for meaning and understanding. In both fiction and non-fiction, my purpose has been to ask where we’ve come from, where we are now, and what the trail looks like it is leading us as it disappears over the horizon.

Reading a good book still yields the best dividend. You will be enriched in ways that money can’t buy.
