Charles Tan has a new essay up on his blog: Why I Promote Philippine Speculative Fiction:
"Let me clarify something though. It’s not just Philippine speculative fiction that needs to be championed. There’s a lot of other speculative fiction from other cultures out there, whether it’s China, Korea, India, Russia, Poland, or some other country which we haven’t heard of. I choose Philippine speculative fiction because it’s what resonates the most, me being a Filipino, and this is where I can do the most good." – Click to read the rest of the essay.
