    Fierce and pitiful

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 20/03/2019

    » Krasue is a Thai ghost beside whom vampires -- and other blood-lusting Western monsters -- pale in comparison.

    The pastoral romance returns

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 19/09/2018

    » The star-crossed lovers coo. They ride their buffaloes through a verdant field, splash mud, evade spiteful parents, and make a vow at the shrine of the banyan tree.
