Christopher G. Moore Updates: 17 September 2015

Dear Readers,

The rainy season has arrived. Pattaya is submerged underwater. Traffic is moving in light rain this afternoon in Bangkok. More rain forecast for the weekend. Gloomy and very wet days ahead.

Nothing better than a good book for a rainy day.

I’d recommend kicking back with a cool drink and a copy of Chad A. Evans’s Vincent Calvino’s World (2015), 278 pages. Heaven Lake Press released the non-fiction book by Evans this week. The photo artwork on the cover of Vincent Calvino’s World includes a shot by David Jacobson, Q-Bar legend, and currently proprietor of Smalls. David has an eye for elegance and beauty.

If you’ve been following the Calvino series since Spirit House was published in 1992, you may appreciate the cultural, political and literary perspective that Evans brings to his examination of the entire 15-book series. For those who lived through the last 25 years in Thailand (and Southeast Asia) or are interested how the big events shaped fiction, Vincent Calvino’s World is a book you will want to read.

Whether you live inside or outside of Thailand, you can order your copy of Vincent Calvino’s World here.

Rain or shine, all the best to each of you for the upcoming weekend.

Best wishes,

Calvino enters a world of ancient maps, political graffiti, student protestors and murder. The finger points at Calvino as the killer. He searches for allies who will help him prove his innocence.

The Age of Dis-ConsentThe Age of Dis-Consent

In the follow up to The Cultural Detective, Faking It in Bangkok, and Fear and Loathing in Bangkok, Moore pays caring and critical homage to his residence of choice by diagnosing some of Thailand’s discontents and offering subtle remedies for readers to tease out.

The essays range from political conflict to violence and criminal investigations in the digital age, to cultural upheavals, cognitive science and writing, including essays about Orwell, Kafka, and Henry Miller. More>>
