Updated: change of stories and schedules this week, as our LitCritters open session at A Different Bookstore is moved to next week - due to Harry Potter).

This week

The Mole Cure by Nancy Farmer
Gardening at Night by Daryl Gregory
Wizard's Six by Alex Irvine
Lazaro y Antonio by Marta Randall

Next week (July 28, 2007 - Open Session at A Different Bookstore, Serendra):

The Labrador Fiasco by Margaret Atwood
Eight Episodes by Robert Reed
Don Ysidro by Bruce Holland Rogers

Last week:

The Way We Live Now by Susan Sontag
Horsing Around by Vincent Diamond
The Flood by Jed Hartman
Red Riding Hood's Child by N.K. Jemisin

If you haven't read the Sontag, go to the LitCritter Group Archives and do so. The best stories stand the test of time and in terms of technique, this story blew everyone away.


The LitCritters is a reading and writing group based in Manila, as well as in Dumaguete. Every week, we read and discuss several pieces of short fiction from various genres from different writers with the goal of expanding our reading horizons, improving our ability to critique, and learning how to write from the good texts. In addition to speculative fiction, we read Philippine literature in English, as well as world literature.

For those who'd like to join us: first, sign up for the LitCritter mailing list so you can access the archives of readings (the box is on the right side of my blog). Next, read all the stories for the week. Then, join one of our open sessions at A Different Bookstore at Serendra, Bonifacio High Street every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month.

We'd love to have you there.
