This year we have a mix of new authors and more familiar names tapping into the Filipino imagination and presenting their takes on fantasy, scifi, horror and other delicious genres (including, for the first time, 'spec chick')

Congratulations to all the authors above and thanks again to everyone who took the time to send us wonderful fiction to read (and argue) about. It was hard work going through the 110+ stories, selecting which to publish, and we had to pass on a goodly number of impressive stories because of several factors (page count, duplicate theme, etc.).

As I said in an earlier post, a number of the stories that didn't make it are already publishable and/or contest worthy - so submit them to Story Philippines, Philippine Genre Stories, Philippines Free Press, Philippine Graphic - as well as to the Fully Booked competition.

The Philippine Speculative Fiction anthologies are very special to me and my co-editor Nikki. For as long as there are excellent spec fic stories written by Filipinos, we'll move heaven and earth (haha) to get the annuals out.

We're in the middle of the editing process and already my printer is requesting for the covers (mea culpa, I created a tight schedule, with the book launch set for Dec 8th), so we're working doubletime.
