Dear Readers,

The Enigma of Emotions, The time before AI is emotionally enabled, is a short essay about whether AI will become emotionally enabled in the near future. It was sparked by an opinion piece in the New York Times suggesting that at least we will always have our emotions and no AI/machine intelligence can match them. May be. May be not.

A community of noir writers has gathered under the banner of Bangkok Noir Authors on Facebook. We are in the very early stages of developing the idea. The list of writers includes John Burdett, Timothy Hallinan, James Algie, Tew Bunnag, Dean Barrett, John Gartland, Tom Vater, and James Newman. We hope to entertain and inform readers on a variety of subjects including crime fiction, the noir movement, publishing trends, ebooks, book signings, conferences and booksellers. And our personal experience of writing fiction set in Southeast Asia. If you have any suggestions for what you’d like to see discussed, send me an email.

Recent Books of Note set in Thailand. A reminder to bookmark these novels set in Thailand.

Timothy Hallinan’s The Hot Countries (A Poke Rafferty Novel). If you’ve not read a Poke Rafferty Novel you are missing a very special series of novels set in Thailand. They are highly recommended.

John Burdett’s new novel titled The Bangkok Asset featuring Sonchai Jitpleecheep, the iconic luk-krung Thai cop, showcases his fertile imagination. Genre can be such a small cage. John’s new novel expands beyond the narrow range of most crime fiction. He’s a fine writer and this book is a great addition to a fine series.

Kevin CummingsBangkok Beat that has been receiving 5-Star reviews on Amazon explores the noir artistic scene—painting, books, poetry, and music in Bangkok. The CheckInn99 has become the unofficial meeting venue. Essays and interviews with painters, photographers, poets, novelists, musicians and a kick-boxer!

Chad Evans’ Vincent Calvino’s World takes the reader through a twenty-five year journey as the 15 book Vincent Calvino series explores how a private eye’s investigations have given him a front row seat to culture, history, politics and crime in Southeast Asia.

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

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>>
