Following hot the heels of his best seller, Money Number One, Neil Hutchison continues his in-depth investigation into the tourist playground of Pattaya.
Inside the real Pattaya. This is NOT another novel about the bar scene. This is the REAL thing.
Kicking Dogs by Collin Piprell, surviving Bangkok's boom - Thai style. A comic thriller set in boom-time Bangkok. A fast and funny novel from the author of Bangkok Knights and Yawn (A Thriller).
In Tarts, Touts and Temples, author Duncan Stearn recounts a series of trips and adventures to which many who have been to Southeast Asia can relate. All are true, even if some sound fanciful or a bit too true to be believed.
Or as the author says "...I've never been anywhere in southeast Asia since then I didn't like. While some places haven't filled me with a great desire to come back quickly, none have been put on the 'don't go there again' list."
Cartoonist Rae's take on love and life in Pattaya.

Imagine leaving the comfort zone of your home, family and friends to venture into the unknown. Imagine discovering an alien paradise only to realize that here, you are the alien who has to try to fit into your new environment. Imagine stumbling through a year of discovery among a tapestry of blunders and imagine that, all the while, you don't have a clue what you are doing.
That takes a lot of imagination!
... but not for The Fool.
What’s Your Name I’m Fine Thank You by Roger Beaumont
I found the entrance by mistake. That could well have been the intention because, although the arrangement seemed secure, the address was decidedly vague - hidden, as it was, amid a dark labyrinth of back sois that gurgled with mischief and neon glitz.

PostScript: Forgotten But Not Gone by Roger Crutchley
After his last book, PostScript, many thought Crutch would do the decent thing and consent to being put out to pasture without little more than a whimper.

The Fool's Best Joke Book Volume 1 by Neil Hutchison
