This coming Friday evening, LONTAR issue #1 will be launched at BooksActually in Singapore! You can RSVP at the official Facebook event page.
For those of you who may not know, Math Paper Press, which publishes and distributes LONTAR, is the publishing imprint of BooksActually, so it’s totally apt to launch the journal at the cozy main store in Tiong Bahru.
Since the majority of our contributors will not be in Singapore, a number of folks in the local literary community have stepped up and agreed to read from the pieces in the issue. So here’s our line-up (in no particular order):
Ang Si Min
Patricia Mulles (for Kate Osias)
Alvin Pang (for Chris Mooney-Singh)
Wei Fen Lee (for Elka Ray Nguyen)
JY Yang (for Zen Cho)
Adan Jimenez (for Paolo Chikiamco)
Jason Erik Lundberg (for Bryan Thao Worra and Paolo Bacigalupi)
If you’re in Singapore and love excellent literary speculative fiction from Southeast Asia, come on down! (And even if you don’t, come on down anyway!)
