When we came up with the idea of assembling an anthology of Singaporean speculative fiction, the dream was always to have it launched at the Singapore Writers’ Festival. Yesterday, that dream came true for Joyce and I as our baby, The Ayam Curtain, made its debut with two other marvellous books from Math Paper Press (Balik Kampung and Fish Eats Lion). We talked a bit about the book, had some contributors read their stories, and then had a short signing session. I’d call it “brilliant” but that doesn’t quite cover how great it was.
I’ll write about it in more detail when I’ve had the time to unpack my feelings, but in the meantime, here are some photos from the event. Thank you, THANK YOU to everyone who came down to the launch – you were truly marvellous.
