Ah, well. I'm a fan of fine writing. And so always will be of Steve, who was born to be a Thailand raconteur but sadly lost his way.

Agree. I'm generally far from inclined  to plough through someone's badly written memoirs, but this guy had a definite talent. Stickman himself was blown away by the quality of the writing, it kind of put his own in the shade.

Yep, I had some notions of becoming a writer, short stories maybe, when I have more time of my own. Then I read Steve and that was the end of that fancy. There was no way I could write like that and, sad to say, even he's not been very successful. Ah, well, better to realize one's limitations sooner than later.

I miss Stick's Sunday musings. Enjoyed reading them with my breakfast and coffee. 

 

Some of the readers submissions were very good too, and yes I also agree that the best were from Steve Rosse. 

 

He, and the other very good writers no longer send pieces to the site though because the new owners sneakily changed the T+C's to make any submitted piece their own property to profit from in any way they like and also refused to take down any previously submitted pieces.

i do miss stickman's weekly article.  i enjoyed the bangkok gossip section more than the opening piece most weeks.  i do remember towards the end of the column, stick had said the entity that he sold the site to was no longer willing/able to pay him.  and he really didn't want to do it for free given the time and effort (who can blame him).  an end of long era.  i hope he is doing well in NZ.

Another talentless hack bites the dust. Boo hoo.

Enough talent to make a living from it for a decade or more it seems which is more than most.

Yes, returning to New Zealand was a high priority for him.  It wasn't the same after left, but was still worth reading.  I would say the new owner had more to do with the end, than him working remotely.  The quality of the products he covered (mostly sponsors) have deteriorated so much (see:  What Happened to NEP), that must have been painful for him, like it is for many of us.

Yes, and he made some interesting comparisons with pay for play in NZ compared to BKK. NZ had become a bargain by comparison, but that's probably because prostitution is now a legal, taxable profession there.
