The paperback version of my book Possible Origins, A Cultural History of Chinese Martial Arts, Theater, and Religion, is now available on Amazon where you can also buy the digital version, and read the introduction. For some reason I make an extra buck if you order it from CreateSpace. This is the best book I have ever written! And I'm sure that readers of this blog are going to love it. As always, I'm open to all kinds of feedback both public and private. I did this to change and inspire conversations about martial arts, theater and religion. So have at it. I also want to say that I have had amazing support from the people around me for doing this work. Thank you.
