Announcements (Updated Again)

In a continuing stream of good news regarding PGS contributors getting published abroad, Crystal Koo (author of "The Scent Of Spice" from PGS2) has a new story up at Rubric, one of the literary journals of The University Of New South Wales (the other is Unsweetened). The title of her story is "The Twilight Express". I've downloaded the pdf file and taken a quick look; though I haven't read it yet, it seems to be an epistolary. Head on over and download her piece to give it a read. Congratulations, Crystal!

Congratulations too to MRR Arcega, PGS contributor of "The Magic Christmas Box" for PGS's Special Holiday Issue. Her story, "Spaceman", is in the December 24, 2007 issue of The Philippine Graphic. She actually has three stories out this month, one in PGS, another in Philippine Speculative Fiction III, and the third in The Philippine Graphic.

Updates: Two other PGS contributors, Sharmaine Galve, author of "Y" from PGS3, and Apol Lejano-Massebieau, who has a story coming in PGS4, are included in the anthology of Vicente Garcia Groyon, Very Short Stories For Harried Readers. Pinoy flash fiction at its best.

Congratulations, all!

Keep on writing and sending out your work, everyone!

New Update: Chiles Samaniego emailed me on Christmas Eve--but I didn't have time to post about it till now--that he has some new posts up as a guest blogger. Check 'em out here and here. This is an update from my previous entry about him here. He talks about the Pinoy background of the fantastic, of how rich our mythology is. Click on the links above to to read what he has to say.

No, Sharmaine didn't do all those things, folks. It was my fault. I was already going to blog about it when the phone rang and in all the hectic activity that followed I forgot about it till she reminded me. Sorry about that!

You're welcome, Bhex!
