Travel Books

My second full length travel book Voodoo, Slaves and White Man's Graves has recently been published worldwide as both a trade paperback and an eBook. Click here for the book blurb, contents and other details.

My first book Tearing up the Silk Road was published in August 2012. According to Garnet Publishing, the book is selling well, but I have no idea what that means. I am hoping that it will sell enough to merit a second edition, with a longer print run and a more competitive cover price.

As an experiment, I have also made some of my longer travel articles available for free as short eBooks. Click here for more details.

Wicked World Magazine

I have recently become involved with Wicked World, a new alternative travel digital magazine. Our intention is to provide a showcase for honest, alternative and irreverent writing, with a particular emphasis on internationally oriented underground culture. Click here for more details.
