The Falcon’s Last Flight (The Great Epic Anthology of Thailand)

by Axel Alywen

Book Three: of The Great Epic Anthology of Thailand

The Falcon’s Last Flight begins with Phaulkon on the return to Ayudhya after successfully putting down both a native rebellion and convincing the French that taking Mergui by force would be both undesirable and impossible. Phaulkon was elated with the results but was tired and looking forward to a reduced workload and some time off. His wife Maria would shortly deliver their first child and Phaulkon was ready to enjoy his vast wealth and power.

Unknown to Phaulkon but during his short absence from the capital events in Ayudhya had taken a serious and potentially dangerous turn for the worse. The Jesuits withheld the lifesaving medicine from the King confident that his chosen successor would be more likely to convert Siam to the Catholic faith. The Kings declining health set off the predictable battle for his successor. Into this chaos enters General Petraja, a trusted friend of King Narai. Like many influential Thais the General resented the foreign influence the current King nurtured and were determined to return Siam to more traditional values, a time without foreigners in positions of power. The remaining French forces that might be able to help Phaulkon tip the balance of power are unfortunately led by an ineffectual general who is unable to decide which powerful faction to support.

Into this deadly whirlwind of deceit, betrayal, jealousy and hatred Phaulkon’s personal life was about to receive an unexpected shock in the form of visit from a long ago forgotten summer romance. His half way secret love-triangle with his wife Maria and his beloved Sunida was about to explode into a unruly foursome. How Maria his devout Catholic wife and Sunida his consort receive this unexpected newcomer could determine the fate of the legendary Falcon of Siam.

A Quiet Place

by Kelly Fitzgerald

There are places time has forgotten, where old women still sweep their stoops, young women rock their children on porches, and little girls run scattering chickens in their wake. This is such a place, and it’s a good place to die, or perhaps to learn how to live again.



THE MAGUS and THE ERRANT KNIGHT

by Leonard Oprea

THE MAGUS and THE ERRANT KNIGHT is excerpted from The Truth, the second book of the Trilogy of Theophil Magus by Leonard Oprea.

“[It] is situated in the strange no man’s land where everyday life becomes truly magical. I consider these writings as splendid expressions of a unique vision of our fragmented but marvelously exciting world. Leonard Oprea’s style combines a discovery of hidden meanings of words with a fabulous sense of secret humor. His works received the highest praises from the most influential critics, who rightly compared his vision to works by Thomas Mann, Borges or Paulo Coelho.” – Vladimir TismÄ?neanu, American philosopher, author, essayist

Leonard Oprea is a Romanian novelist, poet, and essayist. In the late 1980s, he wrote two books of fiction that were banned by the Communist regime and gained him repute among dissidents. Following the 1989 Revolution, the books were published but did not attract significant notice during the political upheaval of the time. He left Romania for the United States in 1999, after which the pair of previously banned works was once again released, this time to acclaim from literary critics and public figures. In the 2000s, he wrote the fictional series Theophil Magus.
