Thompson, of Diner Dharma fame, created the State of Euphoria (OuLiPo) identity for the new Bangkok Writers Guild. Thompson went on to win NaNoWriMo with the support of the Guild and the resultant novel Wolf Incident is in negotiations to be added to the list of Apocryphile Press.

Other founding authors of the Guild include Gary Dale Cearley the author of Thou Shalt Not Bear False Witness: The Truth About the Vatican and the Birth of Islam’ and Voicu Minhea Simandan.

The popular Thai collection Bangkok Blonds was a critical feminist response to sex-pat 'literature' by a later member of the Bangkok Writers Guild.[1]
