Hi Guys,

International Copyright 2016 Robert R. Howle

I have arrived in Siem Reap after such a loooong trip. I caught a cold in Singapore and once here I rested up for a few days taking some meds. Now it is Oct 5 Wednesday.....we are a day ahead of the USA and +8 hours, when it is day here it is night there, weird, Hu? Well it is on the other side of Earth.

I have rented an apartment with internet/maid service/ and all of the normal power/water/elec. I am getting things arranged for living here. I have also sent my Passport off for a 6 month visa extension. They say it is best to be early than late and deported....LOL with this visa extension I have an unlimited ability too visit other countries as I like and re-enter Cambodia as I wish. Nice.  I will renew it again before that expires in 7 months from now.

   I am making many contacts in preparation for voluntary teaching 3d animation and digital art. I find it amazing because as poor as these people are here that they all have smart phones and walk around with them like zombies...like the rest of the World does now. I went with a normal cell phone and it costs me $1US a week. Things are much cheaper here and affords them that opportunity. Only a few have Laptops or desktop computers except for the schools even though they are really cheap, it is still expensive for them.

   I went by Tuk Tuk to the local big open Market to shop. Wo.  The people here are so nice and kind and friendly, it is so nice for a change to experience this. I was here in 2008 and traveled all of Cambodia and all of the Tourist sites. I already have the photos and videos. I have started a new photo album of Siem Reap and will post them soon. I took the above photo on tuesday as well as these:

Royal Palace

Lion Statue from Bakheng Mountains

Water Fountain at Royal Gardens

Chektes Flower

Schneider Tree at Royal Gardens

Traditional Wedding Garments

Lion Statue from Angkor Wat Temple

My Tuk Tuk at Royal Gardens

Back on the Road Again

September 2016 Update

I am back on the Travel Road once again. This time I am headed back to SE Asia starting in Cambodia. I have moved out of the US Virgin Islands and back to my home state of Texas. The loss of a great and best friend Manfred Dittrich the German Sailmaker in the USVI has led me to this decision to travel again. So, I packed up and headed back to Texas to visit my family for a month and then head out for another World Adventure.

   World Travel is what I enjoy but this time things are very different as I have a 3d animation studio and that will go with me. I have a few laptops and a backpack and want to spend some time shooting video and pictures as well as volunteer teach those interested in learning 3d animation some basic ways to assist them with building website advertisements. I will also have time to write again. I decided to re-write my 4 Scifi series books (short stories) into a full blown power packed book and Movie script. Short stories seem to leave too much for the imagination to deal with so over the next year I will work on the book. I was in SE Asia in 2008 as a tourist so I covered the tourist spots already. Time and affordable places to stay offer me a great opportunity and quiet place to write. Having made friends in all of the SE Asian Countries allows me great contacts and places to travel back to safely.

   As I have retired now with a small steady income I can afford to do this comfortably and still  do some traveling. My art, pictures and videos will be another possible source of income. I am starting my quest in Siem Reap Cambodia where Angkor Wat is located with all of the 400 sq miles of Ancient Temples. I depart on Sept 27th and arrive on Sept 29th so that long flight and trip are coming up quickly now. My Travel Pictures will be posted for sale on my Art site at:

   Stay tuned to my blog and follow the Travel Adventures of Bobbyray in SE Asia and thanks for your support and following.  I use Paypal for any donations via: bobbyray42@gmail.com  and thanks for helping me on my way. You do not have to be a member of PP and can use any credit card, simply send money to a friend using my email address. Any donation at any time over the next year will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Reader Reviews for :::::: The Beast of Harmala
Review by Rikki Leigh:
One of the most unusual science fiction books I've ever read. The author took a stance that is pure narrative, with no direct character interaction, no dialogue, and yet still managed to make a story that kept my attention. As strange as it is, this book was intriguing, and left me waiting to see what the author would do with the sequels. Three stars.
Review by Christina Huntington:
The book involves every civilization in the universe, and even manages to drag earth and humanity into the battles that result. I like science fiction, but this book was strange because there was no particular hero. It was like the kind of story people tell around a campfire, with no characters to speak of, just a lot of telling what happened. I can't say it wasn't interesting, but at the same time, I wanted more. Still, it wasn't hard to finish, because I wanted to know what would happen next. I give it two stars.

The Universe vs Pirates of the Multiverse Reader Reviews:
Review by Christie Landon
There's a flavor to this book that reminded me of Isaac Asimov, back when he was writing the robot stories. It's not that this story is in any way similar, but there's a sense of incompletion to it, as if the story has much more that could have been written. It was enjoyable and full of adventure, though, and I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.
Review by Craig Darnelle
I read this book at the request of a review committee, and found it a little confusing at first. As it went along, however, I caught on to a lot of what was making me feel that way, and it passed. I liked the way the author makes use of characters that seem to add more to the plot, then are gone for much of the story, and I liked the overall plot itself.
I give this book 3 stars.
Vol 2  Pirates of the Multiverse  A new beginning for mankind and a union of the universes within the Mulltiverse. Dialog begins here for the series. The first journey into the Multiverse and the fate of mankind.

Readers Reviews of The Universe vs "Exploring the Multiverse"
Review by Rikki Leigh
I was glad to see the return of the main characters from the previous book in this one. This couple seems to have grown in the time that passed since their last adventures, and that made this the best of the stories so far. Exploring the Multiverse, Andronas and Neza once more come into contact with Pirates, but this time the goal of the criminal element isn't just domination of a universe, but annihilation of all species everywhere! It takes their special skill and courage to overcome and save the day. This was by far the best of the series, to date.
Review by Mark Rhodes
I got to review the first book in this series and found this one to be much more interesting. The author has given his characters some life this time, and their interactions make it a far more enjoyable read.
Two stars
Review by Christie Landon
I like the way this writer makes his stories seem almost like early Sci-Fi movies. There was a Galactic Overlord-type character in this one, and I felt very nostalgic as I read it. That said, I also liked the way his characters are developing. They're more articulate in this book than in the previous one, and seem more human (although they aren't). It's a classic Good vs Evil story, and it has a lot of fun and excitement in it. If you liked Buck Rogers, you'll enjoy this book!
Vol 3  Exploring the Multiverse  Another journey into the Multiverse leads scientists to discover the Empire and its alliance.
