This blog post was from last year but I saw it only now. Blogger Eileen Fong of Peregrinate with Me reviews Fish Eats Lion: New Singaporean Speculative Fiction (Edited by Jason Erik Lundberg) and she has some nice words to say about my story “Big Enough for the Entire Universe”.
“Here’s a sneak peak at one of the pages in the book. An extract from Big Enough For the Entire Universe by Victor Fernando R Ocampo. Rather intriguing piece of writing.” – Eileen Fong
Read the book for rest of my story as well as other Singaporean Speculative Fiction works by Stephanie Ye, Ng Yi-Sheng, Ben Slater, Wei Fen Lee, Jeffrey Lim, Shelly Bryant, Ivan Ang, Daryl Yam, Justin Ker, Grace Chia Kraković, JY Yang, Isa Kamari, Noelle de Jesus, Yuen Kit Mun, Marc de Faoite, The Centipede Collective, Carrick Ang, Andrew Cheah, Dave Chua, Tan Ming Tuan and Cyril Wong.
“Fish Eats Lion” is available from the online store of Books Actually and the following venues: Books Kinokuniya (Singapore), Housing Works Bookstore Café (NYC), Shakespeare and Company (Paris), Woolfson & Tay (London), as well as BookMoby and The Booksmith (both in Bangkok) .
Please try to support an independent bookstore if you possibly can. Thank you.
