New From Flipside

Charles Tan has sent me another book full of wonderful speculative fiction stories from the Philippines. Mouths to Speak, Voices to Sing is a collection of work by Kenneth Yu. Here’s some idea of what to expect:

A rich man’s obsession with ancient Chinese jars leads him to a secret afterlife. A young girl discovers internal wonders lost in the perilous depths of the sea. A country teeters at the edge of doomsday under a cloud of sparrows, while in the award-winning “Cherry Clubbing”, men indulge their lusts with impossible creatures.

From domestic A.I. to classic superheroes, explosive spirits and giant spiders, this collection offers a diverse range of stories that deal with human nature filtered through the lens of the strange.

And the cover is gorgeous.
