Laughing Buddha

Authored by David G. Lanoue
Edition: Second Print Edition

"Laughing Buddha" is the second installment in a five-book series of "haiku novels." Why has the poet Buck-Teeth stopped writing after a certain lunar eclipse, and what can be done to help him recover his inspiration? When an evil ninja slinks into the pages intent on murder, we find that writer's block is no mere academic problem but a grave matter with lives and poetry hanging in the balance.
