Rocket Kapre will also run a series of interviews (“On the Far Shore”) featuring the authors of The Farthest Shore. Up first is Kate Aton-Osias.

Now. Who’s behind this insanity?

At present, Rocket Kapre (the blog, the imprint, USOK) is run by Paolo Chikiamco. A lawyer by training and a writer by inclination, in 2009 Paolo resigned from one of the top law firms in the country to establish Eight Ray Sun Publishing Inc., driven to take advantage of the burgeoning ebook market to allow Filipino Speculative Fiction authors a chance, not only to reach an international audience, but to eventually make a living from writing.

Paolo’s articles have appeared in the Philippine Daily Inquirer, Philippine Online Chronicles, and Code RED Magazine. His stories have appeared in the Digest of Philippine Genre Stories, A Time for Dragons, and the Farthest Shore. He won third place in the 2009 Carlos Palanca Awards in the Short Story for Children (English) category. His greatest escapade was sneaking in to watch Total Recall when he was 12 years old. It was totally not worth it.

Paolo can be found on twitter or at the Bahay Talinhaga blog.
