I’m also delighted to report two new books from Charles Tan and his colleagues at Flipside. The first, The Kite of Stars, is a new collection from the fabulous Filipino author, Dean Francis Alfar. If you enjoyed his How to Traverse Terra Incognita then you will want this book as well.
The other book is Alternative Alamat, an anthology of stories based on Philippine mythology and edited by Paolo Chikiamco. I know absolutely zip about Philippine mythology, so the book is immediately interesting on that basis. Charles hasn’t sent me a Table of Contents and I’m a bit rushed right now, but I do see from Amazon that Rochita Loenen-Ruiz has a story in the book.
