Christopher G. Moore Updates: 20 November 2015

Dear Friends,

Who do you trust? That's a question for our times. In an essay I look at the background to how we go about answering that question. It's an important to understanding patronage, nepotism, and cronyism in the time of fear and terror.

For those of you who follow the Calvino series, John Whalen reviews the Big Weird is worth a read:

The Big Weird is the fifth in a series of novels by Christopher G. Moore about an ex-pat American private eye walking the mean streets of Bangkok Dangerous. It’s a place where dreams are for sale and the dream merchants and the buyers alike end up with what’s left of their souls in hock. The boulevards and alleys of Philip Marlowe’s Los Angeles in the 30’s and 40’s seem like Disneyland by comparison. In Chandler’s noir world there was always the hope of redemption for at least some of the characters, but in Moore’s Big Town the people have given up hope. They’ve succumbed to The Sickness.

Have a great weekend filled with stimulating books.

Best,
Christopher
