IMG_1128I am very chuffed to tell you that Asia Literary Review features Asian Monsters in their spring issue.

In this issue you can read an interview with me about monsters and Asian Monsters (the interview can be read online here).

In addition, two of the monster stories from Asian Monsters are featured: “Grass Cradle, Glass Lullaby” by Isabel Yap (read the beginning of the story online here) and “Blood Like Water” by Eve Shi (read the beginning of the story online here). Also, Isabel’s story is accompanied by its illustration from Asian Monsters, the lovely art by Imran Siddiq.

Asia Literary Review is a quarterly literary magazine published in English and in translation online and in print, and distributed internationally. It includes fiction, non-fiction, poetry and photography from new and established writers and artists. Set up in Hong Kong in the late 1990s, the Asia Literary Review has established a reputation for its quality and for its breadth.

Much of this issue celebrates the work of translators, and one of the stories you can read is Shion Miura’s “The Handymen of Mahoro,” translated by Asuka Minamoto. Subscribers can read the whole issue on the website or by downloading eBooks from their accounts. See more about subscribing here, where you can also order both digital and print issues.

Many thanks to the Managing Editor Phillip Kim and Editor in Chief Martin Alexander for reading and being interested in Asian Monsters. I am very happy for both Fox Spirit Books and Asian Monsters but also the talented monster contributors for this.
