    In the late 900s, Tibet and China were experiencing great changes as warring factions fought for political and religious ascendency. Despite being a backwater way station, the little Silk Route trading town of Dunhuang on the edge of the Taklamakan desert served as a repository for a multitude of Buddhist scriptures and commercial papers.
    In 1908, a treasure trove of these documents came to the attention of Sir Aurel Stein, the British archeologist, including a copy of the IRK BITIG, a divination book reportedly from the nomadic reaches south of Siberia. It had been forgotten for over 1,000 years and only came to public notice in 2017 through an exhibition at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles.
    One of the docents was the great grandson of a Japanese priest who had obtained a copy from Stein’s assistant, which included a secret letter describing a companion divination volume THE BOOK OF AFFLICITIONS, that, when used with the IRK BITIG, provided the locations of the hidden mythical kingdom of Shambhala as well as the location of the writings of the original Sufis.
    A group of Black Clad assassins who had chased the divination manuscript across centuries approached the docent, unaware of the companion piece, and the chase was on. The trail leads from Lone Pine, California to Los Angeles to distant monasteries in Ladakh, India and involves an elderly Zen priest and a Buddhist graduate student.

    The Love Hunter, Thirty-Minute Millionaires, Ethnic Ethel and the Artful Dodger plus many more. If you have travelled to Thailand, you will certainly have come across most of the characters in this book at some time and it is quite possible you will even recognize yourself amongst the pages.
    True to form, the author takes a tongue-in-cheek look at tourists he has known in the Land of Smiles, all of whom are based on people he has seen or met in over three decades of living in a country which undeniably attracts some very colourful individuals.
    Uncompromisingly honest and wickedly amusing, Thailand Tourists is a must-read for anybody contemplating a trip anywhere in Asia and will give a completely different aspect to a boring flight, a day on the beach or a hop around the night-spots, allowing the reader to tick off the types represented one by one; all brought to life by the illustrations and script in a unique and often remarkable way.

    …the untold stroy of the common man

    26th January. 4:21 a. m.

    In a crumbling one room house, a young man bends over the light of an oil lamp, writing out a Republic Day speech the government has chosen him to deliver to the vast gathering in the Calcutta Maidan. But he is running out of time. And he must hurry before the country will put him into trial.

    Will his words become a hate speech? Or envelop his countrymen with patriotic fervour? He has no answer to the question.

    However, whispers have already started making rounds of the Muslim, Hindu and Christian blood screaming in his veins which he has hidden from the people. And the story he will read out of his life will justify his religion.

    Written in a chatty style, this novel hits the satirical strings of the reader’s heart, stripping naked – in a bold voice – the weakness and limitations of the country.

    $4.99$13.99

    This book takes an offbeat and humorous look at how tourism has changed radically in Thailand over the past thirty-five years, seen through the eyes of two red-blooded young men who made their first trips to the country over three decades apart.
    Peter Jaggs provides an unparalleled insight into the night-streets, tourist resorts and rural villages of both modern day and bygone Thailand and goes some way to explaining why many men become so hooked on the country after just one short visit, it changes their lives forever.
    Thailand Changes is at the same time both hilarious and sobering. The writing is blunt and honest and about as politically correct as a sexist Klansman on a baby seal hunt wearing an ocelot fur coat, so reader discretion is advised.

    A Carousel is a fairground ride that takes you round in circles… and brings you back to where you started. And the Bangkok Carousel?

    A never-ending ride to find a girl to get me over Kodi. But no matter who – or what – or where I found one, the Bangkok Carousel always carried me back towards Kodi. So who was Kodi?

    Easy answer: Kodi was the only girl I really wanted. What happened?

    If you work your way through the September editions of the Bangkok Times, you’ll find a couple of lines about a Wednesday evening in Soi Rambuttri when a young Thai girl was stabbed on the steps of the Tulip Tree… True: it happened. But by Persons Unknown? Not a chance! We knew exactly who had done it. But by the time they’d started the man-hunt, Zakrov and his crew had long-since vanished into the Golden Triangle… Forget all that. Zakrov and his crew would have to wait for another day. Right now, it was time for me to vanish into the green, green hills of Glen Rowan and decide how best to fix that heroin-pushing Romanian. But then my cell-phone purred with an incoming text message. It was four words long. I’d no idea who sent it. But someone was telling me to Never Give Up Hope!

    Did that mean she was still alive…?

    Walking the World 2, Book Two of Terrence Kero’s ground-breaking trilogy about human migration, tells the story of how five ethnic/linguistic hunter-gatherer clans left Africa some eighty thousand years ago and migrated to the western border of Thailand over the course of many millennia. The novel opens in 2011 at the University of California Berkeley, where Hanna Koskinen is an anthropology graduate student planning to write her PhD thesis on early human migration. When she becomes friends with Leewan Somwan, her next-door neighbor from Thailand, she begins to consider making Thailand the focus of her research, and when she falls in love with Leewan’s brother, Chaat, her decision is sealed. Chaat is a brilliant linguist who has developed a theory about the earliest prototypes of the five major Southeast Asian language families, and Hanna thinks she can use his theory, along with human population genetics and age-dated archaeological discoveries, to support the bold argument she wants to make in her thesis: that Thailand was the initial gateway for the first migration of homo sapiens to Southeast Asia. Stories imagining the tragedies and joys of these prehistoric people on their arduous journeys are interspersed with the present-day narrative of the tragedies and joys of the Koskinen and Somwan families, a narrative culminating in dramatic revelations about the early ancestry of the Somwans and the unexpected links that bond humankind.
