entry arrow5:53 PM | A-Side|B-Side / And the Geek Shall Inherit the Earth Book Launch Today

The launching of Vlad Gonzales's A-Side/B-Side and Carljoe Javier's And the Geek Shall Inherit the Earth, both published by Milflores, will be part of the 55th Installment of Happy Mondays at Mag:net Cafe along Katipunan, Quezon City. The launch starts at 7:30 pm. Lots of readers, bands, drinking, and fun. Playing will be Nerdita, Los Chupacabraz, T.E.A.T.S., Goliath, and Ivan Theory. A notice from Butch Dalisay in the Philippine STAR: "Both Carljoe and Vlad were fellows at this year’s Baguio workshop, and both acquitted themselves handsomely with some very sharp prose — Carljoe in English and Vlad in Filipino — that also highlighted many of their generation’s preoccupations: chiefly among them, what Carljoe might call 'geek civilization,' that predominantly youthful mindset of those raised on computers, the Internet, Neil Gaiman, the X-Men, and the Eraserheads."
