“A Secret Map of Shanghai” by Victor Ocampo, on Strange Horizons

Posted by Paolo Chikiamco On November - 19 - 2013

Getting fiction published in the acclaimed magazine, Strange Horizons, is quite the feat, and today Victor Ocampo joins the other Filipino authors who have made the cut. Victor’s new story, ”A Secret Map of Shanghai“, is now up on the Strange Horizons website. Victor says:

“Its about a May-Dec affair between a young Chinese City God and his Imperialist Western teacher. The story uses poetry as a motif, contrasting imagery from Classic Tang Dynasty Poetry with Rudyard Kipling’s “A White Man’s Burden”. By the way, its very sexual, R-16, so the language may be inappropriate for younger readers.”
