Hello Monday blues/laziness. I got some booklovin’ to drive you away.
Here’s from a reader currently residing outside of the Philippines, but managed to have her Dad pick up a copy of A Bottle of Storm Clouds :
I asked my dad to buy me a copy of A Bottle of Storm Clouds while he was in Manila. I am reading it incrementally, because I don’t want it to end, haha. Reading it, I feel fascinated and homesick. I’m rediscovering old favorites– The Just World of Helena Jimenez, Intersections– as well as finding some new ones which I might have missed when I was going through your website in the past (Sugar Pi is really sweet and subtle, and Reunion is a new favorite of mine– I am a sucker for a good reincarnation plot.) I really enjoy how you include math and science and fantasy in your writing.
Here’s from Sean Wright, Australian writer and book reviewer, and webmaster of Adventures of a Bookonaut:
On Goodreads, he says: “Nice unencumbered writing style.” And “Very solid collection, if you like modern dark fantasy takes on folktales, if you are a fan of Lanagan or Kaaron Warre, pick it up.” Thanks Charles Tan for sending Sean a copy. :)
And thank you past, present, and future readers. You make my day!
The book is available in all major Philippine bookstores. Coming soon in ebook format. ;)
PLUS: Visprint’s price list for the 2013 Summer Komikon. Not sure yet if I’ll be able to attend, but do go and visit the tables!
One thought on “some love for ‘a bottle of storm clouds’”
Lol, yes. I think Australian fans would really like your work.
