Reviews - Readers have lauded Paradox of the Soul:

Many famous and prominent authors have written  of the savagery and terror of combat - Stephen Crane, John dos Passos, Ernest Hemingway, and Norman Mailer come to mind.  But none has done it more effectively or with greater impact than Richard Stuart Kuong in his gem of a tale...The narrative flows easily.  Kuong's prose has a lyrical , almost poetic quality that greatly enhances the story's readability. The stark realism of the battle scenes and the sensitivity of the love scenes are ample proof this writer knows whereof he speaks

- William Riepe, writer, web site author.   Literary critic, Korean War combat veteran.

These endearing stories give you a warm sensation in your heart and a tingling in your soul.  You get the feeling that you know the characters personally and have lived their stories yourself.
