Palanca! (Or is It Too Late?)
For many years since 2003, I usually made an issue of Literatura
(now defunct) devoted to the winning works of the annual Palanca Awards.
This year, I missed out on that for some reason. (Okay, okay...
I was too busy partying. Or perhaps becoming a Palanca judge this year kinda made me want to remove myself from the whole hoopla? I'm not sure. Perhaps it's also due to the fact that a writer kinda admonished me about my efforts, citing "the dangers of online plagiarism," and what not. That bummed me out for a while. Anyway, let's blame partying instead.)
Still, that did not stop many people from asking me when they could read the stuff. I told most of them I had no plans to put out a Palanca issue, much to their dismay. Besides, the Palanca already boasts of a website, and I was sure they would be putting out the works online soon.
But perhaps it's not too late to put out a version of that, eh? Let me see if I can get the winning writers to submit their stuff.
In the meantime, here's Sigfredo R. Inigo's "Home of the Sierra Madre"
, the first prize winner for the short story in English.
