book burning

While bloghopping, I came across my friend Alvin's blog and read about the fire that razed NVM Gonzalez's home.

Bing Sitoy's article affected me terribly - I know that his work has been published and reprinted many times over, but the loss of original manuscripts, clippings and even his awards saddened me.

Endnote: according to GĂ©mino Abad, the annual NVM Gonzalez Award for short fiction in English will still push through - which is excellent news (I'm not in the running but know some who is).
