entry arrow11:18 PM | Tales of Fantasy and Enchantment

New anthology of speculative fiction, this one edited by the acclaimed fictionist Cristina Pantoja Hidalgo, is finally out! (Does this mean the Philippine literary establishment has finally embraced genre writings? Let's hope so.) Anyway, Tales of Fantasy and Enchantment from Milflores Publishing should be available in all National Bookstore and Powerbooks branches nationwide very soon.

This was, of course, the anthology Dean Francis Alfar and I have been hinting about for months now, and well, it's finally here. And the list of stories promises some savory readings ahead...
