national book awards 2006

Thanks to Alvin, I found out that two of the projects I worked on last year are finalists for the National Book Award this year:

Philippine Speculative Fiction (for Anthology)
Siglo: Passion (for Comic Book, co-edited with Vin Simbulan)

I'm thankful to the Manila Critics' Circle for the mention. I'm also happy for the other creatives I know personally on the list (Alvin, Gerry, Arnold, Ed, Sarge, Augie, Eugene, Neil, Greg, Butch, Bing and Manolo) - congratulations and see you guys at the ceremony!
