entry arrow6:19 PM | Gearing Up for Maximum Volume 2!

From Sarge Lacuesta: "I believe that the Filipino short story has come into its own: you only need to read it to hear its confident tenderness in Ian Rosales Casocot's 'Fly-Over Country', to witness its powers of observation in Mara Coson's 'Godjira', to feel its intoxicating hold on you in Sasha Martinez's 'The Auroras'. And you only need to sit with all the other stories in this second Volume to understand why the short story is not a novel-in-waiting, or a student’s exercise, or an experiment in form, or the kind of half-formed, half-committed embryonic creature many paint it out to be. Coming super soon: Maximum Volume: Best New Philippine Fiction 2, edited by Dean Francis Alfar and Angelo R. Lacuesta, with an incredible cover art by Rommel Joson."
