In two countries!
Here’s Singapore Black at Terminal 3, Soekarna-Hatta airport in Jakarta…on the shelf next to…izat a Harry fricking Potter book? If I sold a tenth of what Rowling sells I’d still be satisfied.
And here is Singapore Red on the shelf at Terminal 3, Changi in Singapore, with other swell books from Monsoon Books.
To buy my awesome trilogy of hard-boiled detective novels set in 1890s Malaya, check out the website of Monsoon Books…http://www.monsoonbooks.co.uk/
Check out the latest Opium Traces article at PopMatters.com, my interview with Indonesian novelist Eliza Vitri Handayani…this is the first in a series of interviews with up-and-coming authors in Southeast Asia.
Awhile back, the website China Underground interviewed Paul and myself about our translation of In the Land of Pagodas (find it here: https://drgblogsupreme.wordpress.com/2017/04/17/interview-with-wlg-and-pb-on-china-underground/
Now the good folks at China Undergound have included that interview in their new digital magazine, which can be downloaded here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/14UfbS2wQ813BG87G0UPtkAr2FR0lQ9oU/view
Get it, dig it, feel it…then buy the book!
Let’s face it, my commute kicks the shit out of your commute. Here’s a couple of videos from my daily ride shot on my new GoPro Hero5 Session, one from my bicycle and the other from my Honda scooter. Each one is in real time.
Other than walking, the best way to see the city is on two wheels so I’ll keep posting videos to my youtube channel as I make them.
Meanwhile, enjoy these two rides. About 20 minutes each, which is the same length as a “half-hour” American sitcom, only my videos are a thousand times more interesting than anything on TV and two-thousand times more interesting than 97% of all other videos on Youtube.
Spotted on the shelf at the gift shop at the Singapore Botanic Gardens (of all places)…some noir with your orchids…
My latest Opium Traces article on PopMatters offers a meditation on Francis Ford Coppola’s inconic film Apocalypse Now…
This is the second in a two-part series on depictions of the American War in Vietnam.
Check it out here … then thank me later!
