Christopher G. Moore Updates: 28 February 2014

Dear Readers,

This week I’ve written an essay about the nature of power titled Bangkok’s Rabbit Hole and not unlike Alice in Wonderland, things in Thailand have been growing ‘curiouser and curiouser,’ said Alice.

In Thailand, with more deaths and injuries this last week, including the death of 4 young children, the political conflict has succeeded in creating personal tragedy. The genie of hate is out of the bottle. Capturing and sealing him back looks like an impossible task. The reality is, sooner or later, enemies find a way to overcome their hatred and live together.

Fear and Loathing in Bangkok, my latest book of essays on culture, crime and politics is now available at Asia Books and Kinokunya Branches.

On the Calvino movie front, the production is moving ahead with a revised script. No word on casting or a production date. I expect things will come together later this year.

Over next couple of months, expect ebook editions of Spirit House, Asia Hand, The Risk of Infidelity Index, and Paying Back Jack for Thailand only and priced at $2.99 each or about 90 baht.

Meanwhile, if you’ve not read it, the latest Calvino, The Marriage Tree is the 14th in the series and is an inside look at the abuse of power.

Have a great weekend, good reading, and stay in touch.

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>>
