Exiles by Paul D. Brazill
" I'll admit upfront that I have a story in this anthology, but that hasn't stopped me reading it and enjoying every page. With an overall theme like 'outsiders' I was expecting many of the stories to be quite similar but in fact I was amazed just h... " Read more of this review »

Tropic of Cancer by Henry Miller
" Ah, superb. An amazing read, what a writer!
It possibly runs the risk of flirting with mysogyny at times, but is ultimately the most honest of observational tales based on a vast spectrum of experience.
Awesome, truly. "

Reading GOD OF DARKNESS was like watching an art house film, for me. I was completely satisfied at the end of this 320 page novel, which I would categorize as both a thriller and historical fiction. What Moore does so well is parachute the reader int...more

“The chuckle is a perfectly acceptable form of laughter.”
Timothy Hallinan, Breathing Water: A Bangkok Thriller

“Calvino remembered he had no food in the house and would have to go shopping on Sukhumvit Road. Then he planned to crawl into his bed and sleep, the kind of deep sleep without dreams or hopes, a sleep without regrets, without knowing or thinking how things got the way they are or how occasional fragments of decency escaped the forces of gravity.”
Christopher G. Moore - Zero Hour in Phnom Penh

Dark Jar Tin Zoo
“To find out if she really loved me, I hooked her up to a lie detector. And just as I suspected, my machine was broken.
”
Dark Jar Tin Zoo, Love Quotes for the Ages. Specifically Ages 19-91.

Timothy Hallinan
“She gave me the slow nod women use to indicate that they understand our pain, they admire the courage with which we handle it, and they're absolutely certain that it's all our fault.”
Timothy Hallinan, Crashed

Christopher G. Moore
“The Bangkok Comfort Zone - that strip running between Patpong, Soi Cowboy and Nana - was a huge bank of ice, thick as a glacier. Only you had to be around years and years to see and feel the deep chill, and by the time you had it was too late, the glacier had already dragged you under. Then you could never escape the gravity of the place that pulled them back from all over the world. Comfort Zone ice like a narcotic made you feel invincible. Zone veterans lived inside a solid block of ice. Zone workers, who were teenagers in chronological years, were soon aged inside the ice. The night ice crystals formed a thick fog over the Zone veterans and workers, creating an ice bridge; these ice people knew they could no longer live outside the Comfort Zone. They looked as normal as anyone else on the street because no one can see the ice, it's carried inside, around the heart.
Calvino had gone through the event horizon of the Comfort Zone, and lived in the Zone's ice age for so long that it had become a habit. Addiction, baby. He had become Zone dead like the others”
Christopher G. Moore, Comfort Zone
