    $2.99$13.99

    As night thickens, the soul of Bruce, long dead, settles inside Jack’s head, telling him to churn out a story on Jill, the statuette on his table when, in a parallel universe, Jill becomes Rachnee, Bruce’s beloved and picks up a stone with life in it and a beer mug with faces floating inside.
    At the old and abandoned mansion, the old lady’s face resembles that of Jill’s and the hunt for the Point of Origin begins.
    But who is the elderly couple confirming they are Jill and Jack? And the giggles of children coming from an empty room?
    The mystery of similar birthmark of faces on their bodies takes the young Jill and Jack to the countryside, where a strange ritual of jumping on burning coals and devotees swinging on a moving cartwheel with hooks pierced into their flesh is held. To complete hunting for their identity, the painting exhibition of Faces is not enough, but meeting the elderly couple.

    Strap on your motorcycle helmet, slip on your leather jacket, boots and gloves. Join the Gasoline Tramp on the first and wildest motorcycle ride around the world.
    Described as the ‘longest, most difficult and most perilous motorcycle journey ever attempted,’ this book recounts the 1912-1913 motorcycle ride around the world by Carl Stearns Clancy.
    After he completed his record setting global circumnavigation he compiled his notes and magazine articles in two long lost notebooks. 100 years after Clancy’s ‘round the world motorcycle adventure his work has been published as The Gasoline Tramp.
    Whether the reader is a history buff or motorcycling enthusiast, Clancy’s view of the world from atop a motorcycle was never seen before, and likely will never be again. Bad roads, guns, sickness, a crashed and broken motorcycle, corrupt officials and wild animals, Clancy faced them all.
    He rode his 1912 Henderson motorcycle where no man had ever ridden before. Clancy left his home in America as admittedly a 21 year-old boy. 18,000 miles and 10 months later he returned as a self-described man. He crossed America, Europe, Africa and Asia on his journey. His ride around the world truly defines what motorcycle adventure means.

    Panarat Vipala treats her sweet and innocent daughter (Toy) to an unexpected 17th birthday present – a one-way bus trip from up-country Isaan to Pattaya, where she is put to work as a bar girl.
    A few years later, when Australian holiday-maker Andrew McKinnon meets Toy in a Pattaya bar, he ignores his instincts and falls in love with the bar girl.
    Soon after, Andrew and Toy team up and the couple travel north to Toy’s home province of Udon Thani, and what starts out as an idyllic romance quickly turns into a journey through a cultural minefield. McKinnon encounters age-old customs and traditions as he bids to be accepted into Toy’s family circle.
    Meanwhile, the lovers are forced to tread a wary line between non-interference and rescue when McKinnon’s best mate, Todd Walsh, falls for Bee, a beautiful Pattaya bank manager operating a cunning real estate scam.
    Against an emotional background of sex, greed, corruption and intrigue, a Bangkok psychic called Sukanya, and a natural disaster play roles in Andrew’s and Toy’s determination to hold onto true love and to save McKinnon’s Aussie mate from financial disaster.
