Christopher G. Moore Updates: 18 July 2014

Dear Reader,

Two Thai crime stories involving out of control, impulsive acts feature in this weeks essay. A mother shot her daughter to death and, in a separate case, a katoey attempted to rape a 72 year-old grannie. The title of the essay: Impulse Control & Crime.

I examine some of the literature on mental health, cognitive illusions and raise a question about cultural issues connected with impulsive behavior and the way it is dealt with by local law enforcement.

Id like to expand those who read the Calvino crime fiction series. If youd like to read as an ebook: Spirit House, Asia Hand, The Risk of Infidelity Index, or Paying Back Jack, and would like also to post a review of your thoughts on Goodreads, Kindle, Kobo, Smashwords or the book platform you like to use, then let me know and Ill gift you a copy.

You might also have a friend, relative or colleague who youd like to introduce to the Calvino novels, if so let me have that friends email and Ill send along a free ebook of the book. Email me:

Spirit House Asia Hand The Risk of Infidelity Index Paying Back Jack

Have a great weekend, and keep reading.

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>>
