Christopher G. Moore Updates: 25 July 2014

Dear Reader,

As technology pushes into all areas of our life, I wondered if it had improved the traditional handcuffs that police and soldiers use. The handcuffs (the kind we visualize when we see that word) are largely based on 19th century technology.

Plastic handcuffs have come into the law enforcement arsenal but that is hardly an example of hi-tech. A pair of handcuffs that act as a Taser or with the press of a remote or a computerized program to limit the area a prisoner can move, injects a sedative into the weareróthatís hi-tech, and this is what the future has in store.

This week my essay is about a new set of hi-tech handcuffs. This application of technology opens up political questions of how far society is prepared to go in the quest of controlling others.

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>>
