Dean Alfar's daughter sounds like a writer or a poet. I love that line...the very, very,very end. Lovely.

I love too what Dean is doing with speculative fiction in the Philippines. I mean, it's about time we had more writers writing in this genre. Considering the wealth of our folklore, our culture which is so rich, and the Filipino imagination which is so fertile. It's wonderful to see this man encouraging young Filipino writers to engage the pen and embrace imagination.

But you should really read L'Aquilone du Estrellas (The Kite of Stars)
which was published in Strange Horizons and is included in the Year's Best Fantasy and Horror: seventeenth annual collection (2003) edited by Ellen Datlow and Gavin J. Grant & Kelly Link (icons in the science fiction/fantasy world).
