A Filipino-Chinese Speculative Fiction Anthology
An anthology of stories edited by

"SF/F blogger and critic Tan has assembled an eclectic, innovative mix of 14 stories for what is almost certainly the first Filipino - Chinese speculative fiction anthology. ... Filipino - Chinese readers will feel a thrill of recognition; others will be glad to learn more about a culture rarely seen in speculative fiction."
- Publishers Weekly

Filipinos and Chinese have a rich, vibrant literature when it comes to speculative fiction. But what about the fiction of the Filipino-Chinese, who draw their roots from both cultures? This is what this anthology attempts to answer. Featuring stories that deal with voyeur ghosts, taboo lovers, a town that cannot sleep, the Chinese zodiac, and an exile that finally comes home, Lauriat: A Filipino-Chinese Speculative Fiction Anthology covers a diverse selection of narratives from fresh, Southeast Asian voices.
