Our own Charles A. Tan has been busy – not only is he nominated, for the second year running, for the World Fantasy Award (for his blog, Bibliophile Stalker) but US-based published Lethe Press have just released his new anthology, Lauriat: A Filipino-Chinese Speculative Fiction Anthology.
About the anthology:
Filipinos and Chinese have a rich, vibrant literature when it comes to speculative fiction. But what about the fiction of the Filipino-Chinese, who draw their roots from both cultures? This is what this anthology attempts to answer. Featuring stories that deal with voyeur ghosts, taboo lovers, a town that cannot sleep, the Chinese zodiac, and an exile that finally comes home, Lauriat: A Filipino-Chinese Speculative Fiction Anthology covers a diverse selection of narratives from fresh, Southeast Asian voices.
Stories by: Charles Tan, Andrew Drilon, Erin Chupeco, Kristine Ong Muslim, Isabel Yap, Christine V. Lao, Gabriela Lee, Paolo Chikiamco, Fidelis Tan, Marc Gregory Yu, Yvette Tan, Margaret Kawsek, Crystal Koo, Kenneth Yu, Douglas Candano
