DESCRIPTION:
Dark magic and dark pasts haunt the characters in these short stories set in mysterious, exotic Thailand. Ghosts and spirits and the real-life terror of despair besiege the pages of "The Phantom Lover and Other Thrilling Tales of Thailand," horror stories by award-winning writer and longtime Thailand resident Jim Algie. In these tales you'll meet: A photojournalist who is literally haunted by the images of everyone he ever failed or exploited while getting a story. A drug trafficker-turned-writer who confronts vulnerability in his hard-as-nails partner in crime. An executioner who explores the nature of violence in a painful search for loving kindness.For these characters, the naturally lush, deeply spiritual, and excitingly urban Thailand that is there home is also a place full of demons, a place where desperation is another word for normal. Each story follows their attempts to push through and make sense of the many different shades of darkness. "The Phantom Lover and Other Thrilling Tales of Thailand" warps the boundaries between the conceivable and the bizarre, and proves that the surreal can seem very real indeed. A resident of Thailand since 1992, travel writer (and one-time punk rocker, cable TV host, college DJ, and music journalist) Jim Algie taps into Thailand's ethos from a very unique perspective. He offers readers the best elements from the worlds of both supernatural and horror fiction.
