As he travels around Asia solving crimes the venerable feng shui Master C.F. Wong is so much more than an interior design consultant. In this latest adventure he and other members of the Union of Industrial Mystics are introduced to a young woman who, all their mystical arts tell them, is doomed to die. Trying to save her calls for desperate measures and their best efforts eventually send Mr Wong and his brash young intern Joyce McQuinnie to Sydney. There at the famed Opera House, a building with appalling feng shui, surprising things happen, much cross cultural chaos ensues and as you would expect with the inimitable Feng Shui detective the day is saved in most inventive ways. Nury Vittachi was born in Ceylon and lives with his English wife and their three Chinese children in Hong Kong. Irresistible mix of classic whodunit and Asian philosophyoutlandish humour, self-deprecating charm, and a biting subtext'.

Wacky, original and fun' Independent on Sunday 'Extremely funny' The Daily Telegraph 'Makes you laugh out loud and often' The Age 'Highly entertaining' Time Out A bestselling author and columnist throughout Asia, and described by the BBC as 'Hong Kong's funniest commentator', Nury Vittachi lets rip in these three gloriously feel-good novels which revolve around sleuth and feng shui master CF Wong and his over-enthusiastic sidekick Joyce. In THE SHANGHAI UNION OF INDUSTRIAL MYSTICS the oriental, occidental and accidental collide as CF Wong and Joyce must save the city, a couple of presidents and an explosive white elephant from a group of vegan extremists intent on blowing up the place. THE FENG SHUI DETECTIVE'S CASEBOOK is Vittachi at his witty, innovative best. CF Wong and Joyce are in demand - with a missing Thai film idol, an escaped tiger in a supermarket and a Sydney gym where they seem to be exercising their clients to death. After an ill-advised stationery deal puts him in debt to the Chinese mafia, CF Wong finds himself heading for his least favourite place - the West - to do a feng shui reading of Buckingham Palace. Princes, planes, pens and points of the compass all collide in the final adventure of the Feng Shui Detective, MR WONG GOES WEST.

Life’s Secret is Flow This book is thick and encyclopedic and has every Intentional Feng Shui cure known to humankind (according to Gabrielle Alizay). It is the scientific, long form version of Feng Shui, inspired by Black Hat Tibetan school of thought and written by Gabrielle in a humorous style—non-judgmental and realistic—because life is hard enough. This book is how to make things easier. In the flow. This Second Edition version, which includes added Mouth of Chi cures, is to be used along with Gabrielle’s latest book, Quantum Feng Shui: 9 Accomplishments to Promote Personal and Planetary Peace whenever you intuitively ‘sense’ that you need more wattage with whatever home and office renewals you have made. Originally published in 2005 by Writers’ Collective, this Feng Shui go-to guide is highly proclaimed as being ‘a book which takes the mystery out of how-to Feng Shui’ and has a detailed, thorough study of Feng Shui Cures, or “Amplifications,” that can be used in tandem with Quantum Feng Shui™ Accomplishments to take in your home and office to inspire major optimistic transformation on every level. In fact, every intentional ritual and action in this book will make your home and office even more of a microcosmic view of peace, health, love, abundance and bliss—and add potency to whatever Quantum Feng Shui™ has already activated exquisitely. This book is for the activist healer who wants more. No need to stand in line. It is all here. — “Feng Shui For The Rest Of Us by Gabrielle Alizay demystifies the art of Feng Shui and makes it a tool we can all use. With a healthy dose of humor and straightforward instructions, she shows readers how to put Feng Shui principles into practice in their homes for a more balanced and peaceful atmosphere.” - Martha Stewart’s Body+Soul magazine, December 2005 issue “Makes Feng Shui principles accessible for the average person!” - Denise Linn, author of Sacred Spaces “A down-to-earth guide to Feng Shui, one of the best to come along in years. If you want to change any aspect of your life, this book is all you need. Terrific!” - Denise Osborne, author of The Feng Shui Mystery Series

The dark side of The Lion City is explored in a thrilling anthology that gives “plenty of new and unfamiliar voices a chance to shine” (San Francisco Book Review). The island city-state of Singapore harbors unique customs and traditions largely unknown to the West. A booming economy and embrace of conformity overshadow its gambling dens, red-light districts, and a collective passion for ghostly and gory tales. Now, in Singapore Noir, some of its best contemporary authors delve into its seedy side, including three winners of the Singapore Literature Prize: Simon Tay (writing as Donald Tee Quee Ho), Colin Cheong, and Suchen Christine Lim, whose contribution was named a finalist for the Private Eye Writers of America Shamus Award for Best P.I. Short Story. Eleven more tales showcase the talents of Colin Goh, Philip Jeyaretnam, Cheryl Lu-Lien Tan, Monica Bhide, S.J. Rozan, Lawrence Osborne, Ovidia Yu, Damon Chua, Johann S. Lee, Dave Chua, and Nury Vittachi. “Singapore, with its great wealth and great poverty existing amid ethnic, linguistic, and cultural tensions, offers fertile ground for bleak fiction . . . Tan has assembled a strong lineup of Singapore natives and knowledgeable visitors for this volume exploring the dark side of a fascinating country.” —Publishers Weekly

City Stage is an anthology of recent Hong Kong English-language drama written for Hong Kong performers and audiences. All the plays were written in the last ten years and so capture and reflect the fast-developing multiculturalism of the Hong Kong scene - a somewhat paradoxical phenomenon in view of the 1997 return to China Mainland sovereignty. The richness and diversity of the subject-matter, the wide range of theatre styles from the naturalistic to the highly stylized and quite simply the engaging quality of the dramatic writing, all make this anthology both an essential adjunct to the 2001 prose fiction and poetry collection City Voices and at the same time a ground-breaking, independent record of an incredibly fertile period in Hong Kong's recent creative life history. Thematically speaking, whilst all plays have their unique voice and subject-matter, it is accurate to say that the quest for personal and communal identity is a theme that goes to the heart of all present selections. The anthology is important in that it epitomizes the increasing interconnectedness of previously segregated facets of Hong Kong culture, indicating the very welcome tendency towards more open dialogue between Chinese and non-Chinese practitioners and audiences. The anthology contains the complete texts of the shorter plays and strategically selected excerpts from the longer plays. All the texts in this collection were written as English-language versions for performance rather than literary translations, although for some a Chinese-language text was also written.

Flying Star Feng Shui adds a new "time dimension" to feng shui practice reflecting the fact that the subtle energies present in our living environment are constantly changing. The flying star combinations make it possible to respond to-or prepare for-these changing energy "situations." These methods produce impressive and rapid results and can both shorten periods of bad luck, while initiating or prolonging periods of good fortune. These concepts have previously been available only from a few untranslated or highly technical sources. Author Stephen Skinner has a international reputation as a populizer of feng shui concepts for Western readers. In Flying Star Feng Shui he introduces one of the most effective and popular aspects of feng shui practice today.
