Colonel Ken's Hardship Posting
Current Release
Asian Fiction

Since Marco Polo returned from China and recorded his epic adventures, the trials and tribulations of expats in Asia have made for colourful telling - and re-telling -the world over. And no one captures it better than 'Hardship Posting'Ö

'Hardship Posting' remains on best-seller lists in many Asian markets, having been reprinted 4 times already and selling over 20,000 copies to date. Volume 2 casts the net wider - with twice as many contributors and twice as many cartoons. Pre-orders for Vol.2 exceeded the first 2 print runs of Vol. 1.

'Hardship Posting' Volume 2 contains a further 400 amusing and amazing anecdotes of ordinary expats in extraordinary situations, compiled and edited by Stuart Lloyd.

'Hardship Posting is like a greatest hits collection of expat yarns,' says writer and editor, Stuart Lloyd. 'This time round we've got stories going back to post-war Japan, and many more about the colourful 60's and 70's period. It's a warts-and-all expose of expat misadventure - so if someone's idea of rabble-rousing is spilling some champagne on their suit in the cigar bar of a 5-star hotel, this book is probably not for them!' adds Lloyd.

Lloyd himself spent 13 years in Asia but has once again co-opted Old Asia Hand and barstool philosopher, Colonel Ken Oathe, to add his politically incorrect narration and humorous perspective. Col. Ken also hosts the book's popular website.
