SQ21, Modern Metrics, After the Fire

Edited by Ng Yi-sheng, "SQ21-Singapore Queers in the 21st Century" is a collection of 15 coming out stories, told by men and women, including a mother of 2 gay sons (the Singaporean novelist, Suchen Christine Lim).

Modern Metrics:a new, independent NY press that publishes chapbooks of formal poetry.

Boey Kim Cheng's new book, "After the Fire," collects selections from his three earlier books and new poems written after this itinerant Singaporean's migration to Australia.

Aiyah, I just got back from a trip to S'pore, and saw that the launch of Boey Kim Cheng's poetry collection is in september... Too bad I can't go back and get an autographed copy... I think I missed Cyril Wong's book signing too.

Hi dreamer idiot,
I missed both signings too. Autographed copies do nothing for me but it would have been nice for the writers to know they have keen readers of their work.
