The availability of my earlier
novels has been a problem for many years. The new technology has come to the
rescue. The new format is called an ebook. The best known provider of ebook
downloads is Amazonís Kindle reader. My Calvino novels published by
Grove/Atlantic in New York are on Kindle.
The Land of Smiles trilogy was
published in the early 1990s in Thailand. A Killing Smile, A Bewitching Smile
and A Haunting Smile are set during one of the most chaotic times in recent Thai
history. All of the books remain in print. Alas, they have not been widely
available outside of Thailand.

new way to deliver and read books.
You can download the entire series
on a Kindle for about the same price as ordering one of the books online from
The first in the trilogy is the
classic: A Killing Smile. It can be downloaded in the States
A Bewitching Smile is available for a Kindle download also
A Haunting Smile can be downloaded for Kindle for
Hopefully the ebook edition
(which is the same as the trade paper back edition) will bring a new group of
readers to the Land of Smiles series. Pass the word along to friends and
