Singapore Trilogy at WHSmith

The publisher of my Singapore Trilogy, Monsoon Books, posted this image on their social media, taken at the new WHSmith bookstore in Singapore’s Changi airport.

Look closely at the top shelf, because all three books of my hard-boiled Malaya trilogy are represented….

Black, Yellow, and Red

Right next to my pal Tim Hannigan’s outstanding non-ficiton book on Raffles’ time in Java, also published by Monsoon.

New Alfred Raquez article in Archipel

I am very pleased that my article and translations with Paul Bruthiaux of Alfred Raquez’s travels in Java are now published at Archipel, the leading journal in the field.

“Archipel is a journal of interdisciplinary studies on Insulindia (Indonesia, Malaysia, The Philippines, Singapore, Brunei Darussalam, Timor-Leste), established in 1971, with a particular attention given to humanities.”

Check that out here: http://archipel.revues.org/452#authors
