Philippine Speculative Fiction 6 Launch (With The PGS Crime Issue Tagging Along) -- Updated

Philippine Speculative Fiction 6 is going to be launched on Saturday, 2011 May 28, 5 p.m. at Fully Booked Bonifacio Global City. The anthology was edited by PGS contributors Nikki Alfar and Kate Osias. Kate has provided us with the lineup of stories, of which I consider myself fortunate to be a part of with my tale, "The Kiddie Pool"; and in which we can also find other PGS contributors such as Charles Tan, Ian Rosales Casocot, Andrew Drilon, Vincent Michael Simbulan, Elyss Punsalan, Crystal Koo, Paolo Chikiamco, Dean Alfar, and Alex Osias.

Tagging along and playing the supporting role to PSF6's lead, is the PGS Crime Issue. It's ironic that this will be the first time PGS will be formally announced/launched, given that this issue will be the last foreseeable PGS issue to come out in print. But hey, better late than never, and my thanks to Kestrel, the publisher of PSF6, for allowing PGS to be present on Saturday. It's worth noting that both Crystal Koo and Alex Osias have tales in both PSF6 and the PGS Crime Issue. The other writers in the PGS Crime Issue are Maryanne Moll, Xin Mei, and Dominique Cimafranca, and was guest-edited by F.H. Batacan.

Come and join us on Saturday, 2011 May 28!
