a leap for lauriat.

Finally, the table of contents for the upcoming anthology "Lauriat: A Filipino-Chinese Speculative Fiction Anthology" is out! The book, edited by speculative fiction champion Charles Tan, includes my story "Chopsticks" (which previously appeared in Graphic and subsequently won a Nick Joaquin award) as well as other stories rooted in the richness and vibrancy of Filipino-Chinese culture.

The stories are:

“Ho-We” by Erin Chupeco
“The Chinese Zodiac” by Kristine Ong Muslim
“Pure” by Isabel Yap
“Dimsum” by Christine V. Lao
“August Moon” by Gabriela Lee

Can't wait for the book's release - and congrats to everyone!
