Digital books can now be ordered directly from the author at this website, and downloaded immediately after payment from this website. The advantage: the author gets paid directly (which is now an urgent need, as he has to travel halfway around the world to attend his son’s wedding, shortly). And you know your money has gone directly to the author, which rarely happens (many less-known authors are cheated of their royalties by publishers, or have to take a cut from digital platforms). A few of my paperback books are available directly from and A few are in scattered locations, difficult to access. For the moment, I can only fulfill direct orders in the U.S. on the basis of advance payment by Paypal to richardcrasta[at]yahoo[dot]com at the rate of $30 per book, or $50 for 2 books–and expect it will take around two weeks for delivery. FOR FULL DETAILS, PLEASE GO HERE.

As for the books you can download here:

I am pleased to announce that, at present, readers may download any of the following books with either a credit/debit card or with Paypal:

Eaten by the Japanese: The Memoir of an Unknown Indian Prisoner of War

The Revised Kama Sutra: A Novel

Impressing the Whites

Apocalypse Then and Now: An Alternative View of 9/11

NEW: How to Lose Your Children … and Maybe Win Them Back (A Work in Progress)


What is the advantage? That you’re helping the author to continue writing, and in this case, also to attend the wedding of his son halfway around the world. No commission to be shared with a multinational company, and no delays in payment.

Thank you for visiting this site, and thank you for your precious time.
