entry arrow12:22 PM | A Time for Dragons

I can't wait for this book, which certainly took a long time in coming -- but here it is at last, A Time for Dragons: An Anthology of Philippine Draconic Fiction -- Vin Simbulan's dream project of gathering together "new dragon stories by Filipino authors to present the dragon in new and inventive ways, and renew and refresh the dragon for a more sophisticated and mature audience," published by Anvil's Fantasy imprint. Andrew Drilon's fantastic cover is simply a delight -- and other publishers should take note how exactly to do a fantasy book cover. (Like this! Just hire Andrew!)

The list of contributors are a bunch of great writers, including Nikki Alfar, Cyan Abad-Jugo, Elyss Punsalan, Vincent Michael Simbulan, Alexander Drilon, Alexander Marcos Osias, Paolo Chikiamco, Elbert Or, Apol Lejano-Massebieau, Joseph Nacino, Gabriela Lee, Kate Aton-Osias, Oscar Alvarez, Angelo R. Lacuesta, Dominique Cimafranca, Yvette Natalie U. Tan, Dean Francis Alfar, and Charles Tan. (The list with titles can be found here.)

The book launch will be on 29 March 2009, Sunday, at 3:00 pm, Shangri-la Mall Grand Atrium.
