Download Stories FREE OF CHARGE

All of the wonderful writings on this website are free of charge - if you would like to offer a donation to support Gungkak Bob's work please do so...


Some of my friends ask me why I have made my books and stories available for free. "They we written for the grandchildren" I say. In Bali, grandchildren are called cucu (choo choo). This website is an invitation. If you would like to be one of Gungkak's cucu, just click on any of my stories; enjoy, and welcome to my family.

Here is a brief introduction to the various download pages where you can directly access and download my writings:

  • Books for Children & Young Readers: I started collected stories and learning Balinese customs and traditions as soon as I moved here in 1996. Books are novels and collections of related stories based on Balinese folklore and Balinese Hindu myths. Click here to see the collection...
  • Storybooks for Young Readers: mostly based on stories my grandmother told me almost seventy years ago! Moving them to Bali and filling them up with Bali Gods and Goddesses, ghosts and demons, heroes and villains, heroines and witches, changed them a great deal and made them exciting to write. Click here to see the collection...
  • Books & Stories for Adults: these have themes of love, death and creation. Click here to see the collection...
  • Coming soon! ...... My two-volume autobiography: Volume 1: I'm not famous but… (my life in wester culture) Volume 2: A fool in paradise (my life in Bali). 
Feel free to browse through any of these pages and directly download the book and story files onto you computer.

I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I did writing them!
