3 Good Things

3 good things to cheer about and support as we enter 2012:

First, the anthology Alternative Alamat was launched last December 14, 2011 by Rocket Kapre. Edited by Paolo Chikiamco, it "gathers stories, by contemporary authors of Philippine fantasy, which make innovative use of elements of Philippine mythology."

Second, Diaspora Ad Astra, the science fiction anthology from Estranghero Press, is now live, featuring 14 science fiction stories by Pinoy writers. The man behind Estranghero Press is Joseph Nacino.

Third, the lineup of stories and authors for Philippine Speculative Fiction 7 has been posted by editors Kate and Alex Osias. 24 stories will soon be made available to readers, most likely by mid-2012.

Pao, Joseph, Kate, and Alex have done great work, and they bring great reads for us to enjoy in 2012. All four of them are PGS contributors, and in each anthology's lineup I see current (and future!) PGS contributors as well. Fiction-wise, locally, 2012 is off to a great start!
