About This Book

This fourth issue presents speculative writing from and about Singapore, the Philippines, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia and Thailand. Inside these pages, you'll find: the harsh realities of living as a refugee within a calorie-based economy by acclaimed award-winner Paolo Bacigalupi; the uneasy combination of domestic troubles and virtual reality from Palanca Prize winner Kate Osias; the unexpected and complete disappearance of Singapore itself from Singapore Literature Prize winner Ng Yi-Sheng; a surreal trip through alternate worlds from Philippines Free Press Literary Prize winner Eliza Victoria; an eerie meeting with chanteuse Faye Wong during a Malaysian holiday from Andrew Cheah; and speculative poetry from Michael Gray, Joses Ho, Desmond Kon Zhicheng-Mingdé, Cyril Wong and Jerrold Yam.
