It’s preview time! For EM Zine Issue 5 I decided to turn in the first few bits of work for a large project that I’m working on to submit elsewhere in the coming months. 🙂 These shorts are written in the format of the title–pretty self-explanatory.
Earlier this year, I remember mentioning that we were working on EM Zine Issue 4–and here it is. This is the first ever event we’re having for EM and it’s going to be exciting to see how this’ll go. The launch is going to be on March 22nd (Saturday), at Exile On Main Street, Leon Guinto Street, Malate, Manila (across from Taft Avenue, near DLSU). Details are on the poster above–you can also head to the Facebook event page to see more.
I think that this is definitely the swankiest EM Zine in terms of layout (although the first one took the cake for binding).
As for my work that’s in here–I’m a little bit nervous about it. Stories For Other People, Part 1 is included along with two other works entitled Recipes For Fear and Air Hunger. For now, I’m good with this decision to publish a “bulk project” like the installment of Stories For Other People but I get the feeling I’ll change my mind about that eventually. We shall see!
I’m going to be at Readercon this December 7th at the Rizal Library in Ateneo De Manila. 🙂 I’ll be there along with Trizha Ko and some other really awesome people (I will post up links soon). I’ll also be putting out a tiny collection of short stories entitled “The Chlorine Atom Girl”, a preview to which I will post up here when it’s ready. 😀
