Dispatches from Singapore by Dr Rigor Mortis

The Singapore Letters

This book is a collection of letters by Dr George Caldwell, most of which were published in the main newspapers in Singapore from the late 1960s till the late 1990s. The letters were an attempt by Dr Caldwell to try and prevent the destruction of whole streets as well as individual buildings in Singapore. Quite a number of points made in his letters were taken up by the authorities in Singapore, and much remains relevant today.


Electric Flying Tram-Car

This book is a day-by-day catalogue of events and impressions covering the period from March to June 1958 by Dr George Caldwell, a Ship's Surgeon who travelled east from out of England, and who then spent the next 50 years of his life traveling and in the East.
The detailed documentation of these four months in 1958 gives a charming and important glimpse of life in the fifties.

More or Less Rapid Transit

This book is a selected collection of letters by Dr Rigor Mortis to the newspapers and government bodies in Singapore from the late 1960s up to as late as April 2008. The letters reflect a deep concern with roads, the Mass Rapid Transit, road safety and mass transportation in Singapore that would be efficient, user friendly, and most important - convenient for commuters.
