Philippine Speculative Fiction 2

There's this call for submissions on Dean Alfar's blog which looks very interesting. Now to find out if I have a story that would work with this call for subs.

I am quite pleased to discover this writer. Some of his work is available online, but sad to say not available from Amazon. So, I asked my sister if she could just go and get some copies of this writer's books for me.

I am always pleased to discover Filipino writers writing in the speculative genre. I recognize how my fellow Pinoys have got a fantastic imagination. And I'm not saying that just because I'm a Pinay.

Reading Dean's online work, I couldn't help thinking this could just as easily be published on Realms of Fantasy or on one of the bigger magazines. But I admire Dean's dedication to promoting this genre.

I'm off to review more subs, finish my review and complete the first draft of The Sun's Bastard Children.

Thanks for the kind words. One of my stories is available via Amazon, in the Year's Best Fantasy & Horror 17th Annual Collection, edited by Ellen Datlow, Kelly Link and Gavin Grant. It reprints my first spec fiction sale to the US. You can also order Rabid Transit: Managerie from Velocity Press there in the US, where another piece appears ( :)

Oh yay! I'm going to look for those, and will post about this on the TSR forum.
