A Filipino Detective?

Take a refresher, everyone, and check out this old post of mine, Crime Does Not Exist. In this post, I ruminate on the very few crime stories that exist in Pinoy fiction, at least in English (I'm not sure about our other languages). Check out all the comments in my post, and then click on all the links to get a handle on this online discussion that occurred back in 2007.

After that, head on over to this post, Manila's Finest, at Jessica Rules The Universe. It's a writing contest where writers are challenged to come up with the characterization of a Manila detective in 1,000 words or less. The deadline is October 18, 2010, 11:59 p.m., and the prize is James Ellroy's Blood's A Rover.

And since I'm blogging about crime fiction, consider this a plug for what I hope will be the soon-to-be-released-and-long-delayed special PGS Crime issue, edited by F.H. Batacan, author of Smaller and Smaller Circles! Watch for the announcement on this blog!
