Three spec fic book launches at once — how’s that for efficiency? I’ve got a story in the ’Best of Philippine Speculative Fiction, 2005 – 2010′ (it launched in print a while back, but this is the digital launch), a reprint of “Carbon” from PSF5. If you’re in the area and interested in spec fic, do come by — the Alfar-hosted launches are usually frenetic and enjoyable.
Here are the details:
When: Saturday, July 27, 2:00 p.m.
Where: e Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf at EDSA Shangri-La Mall
The UST Publishing House, Flipside Publishing, and Kestrel DDM invite you to the launch of:
‘Philippine Speculative Fiction volume 8′, edited by Dean Francis Alfar and Nikki Alfar,
‘Now, Then, and Elsewhen’, a short story collection by Nikki Alfar, and
the digital edition of the ‘Best of Philippine Speculative Fiction, 2005 – 2010′, edited by Dean Francis Alfar and Nikki Alfar.
Ours has regularly been called “the most fun book launch of the year”, so do join us for an afternoon of laughter, merienda, and the inevitable teasing of Eliza Victoria. And probably you. And probably me. But, you know, we believe that mockery is the sincerest form of friendship. (Please note that this will be held at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf at EDSA Shangri-La MALL, not the hotel, and also not the 26th Street Bistro at the new wing. It’s the ground-level Coffee Bean, facing the driveway.)
