A Discussion Of Lists

The lists of top Philippine Speculative Fiction (2007) of Electrick Twilight Boogaloo and The Bibliophile Stalker (mentioned here and here), have brought forth a response from To The Tale, And Other Such Concerns: The Treatise To Test Top Thoughts. He also promises to soon post his reviews for the PGS Holiday Issue. I'll link to his review as soon as it's up.

He agrees with some of Boogaloo's and The Stalker's choices, but also takes issue with others, though like Banzai Cat, he also says he didn't read as many stories last year as he would have liked. Click on the link above to read his post, and feel free to share your own thoughts and comments!

Here's an intriguing quote from his post where he makes a comment on how different the two lists are:

"In a way, this is both a blessing and a curse. For one, it indicates the presence of different schools of thought on the quality of Philippines Speculative Fiction. On the other hand, it also implies that there were no truly good stories that can be elicited from a consensus of readers."
