Not sure, but quite soon. The first volume is fully edited, copyedited and proofread. The seven new covers are ready. I want to have the second volume fully edited etc before I put the first one out. Will probably put the first two out at the same time. Please join my mailing list on my website at www.ricardopinto.com so that you will get notifications directly(less)

the sixth book of the Second Edition released

I am delighted to announce that The Mirror Breaks, the sixth book, of the seven that will constitute the Second Edition of The Stone Dance of the Chameleon, is now available on any Amazon store as an ebook, and as a paperback from a more limited number of stores. I published it on the 23rd October—but have waited until I was sure that both editions are available to announce them.


The final book is

a wonderful overview and with the most excellent maps. I understood aspects of world history—particularly the Steppe—but more importantly the topography of that more northerly part of Eurasia… the Tarim Basin for example—for the first time

“What you call passion is not a spiritual force, but friction between the soul and the outside world. Where passion dominates, that does not signify the presence of greater desire and ambition, but rather the misdirection of these qualities toward and isolated and false goal, with a consequent tension and sultriness in the atmosphere. Those who direct the maximum force of their desires toward the center, toward true being, toward perfection, seem quieter than the passionate souls because the flame of their fervor cannot always be seen. In argument, for example, they will not shout or wave their arms. But, I assure you, they are nevertheless, burning with subdued fires.”
Hermann Hesse, The Glass Bead Game
