Fish Eats Lion

Fish Eats Lion is an anthology of speculative fiction published by Singapore’s Math Paper Press.  The anthology will include my short story “Rewrites.”  Unfortunately, I won’t be in Singapore for the launch on Nov 4, but if you are there, perhaps you’d like to stop in on the event.

The launch will be a part of the Singapore Writers Festival, held on 4 November at 4:00 p.m. in the Pavilion. There will be five readers whose work appears in the anthology, Victor Ocampo, Andrew Cheah, Noelle de Jesus, Wei Fen Lee, and Marc de Faoite.
