The Epigram Books Collection of Best New Singaporean Short Stories: Volume Six
- About the Editors
The best short fiction published by Singaporean writers in 2021 and 2022.
The Epigram Books Collection of Best New Singaporean Short Stories: Volume Six gathers the finest Singaporean stories published in 2021 and 2022, selected by guest editor Gwee Li Sui from hundreds published in journals, magazines, anthologies and single-author collections.
“If you’ve never read Singaporean literature, this would be a good place to start. If Crazy Rich Asians was the last thing you read by a local author, even better. The authors’ names might fly under the radar, but their voices are all too familiar—they’re the voices of our neighbours, our colleagues, and our loved ones. And occasionally, they sound a lot like our own.”
“Showcases the best in contemporary Singaporean writing now, with a diverse multitude of local voices that tackle their subjects with tooth and claw, flair and finesse.”
Dr Gwee Li Sui (guest editor) is a poet, graphic artist and literary critic, and has written and lectured on a range of subjects. He’s published seven volumes of verse to date, most recently This Floating World in 2021. He wrote Singapore’s first English-language graphic novel Myth of the Stone in 1993, re-released in 2013.
Jason Erik Lundberg (series editor) is the fiction editor at Epigram Books. He was born in New York, grew up in North Carolina, and has lived in Singapore since 2007. He is the author and anthologist of over twenty-five books, including A Fickle and Restless Weapon, Most Excellent and Lamentable, Diary of One Who Disappeared and the Bo Bo and Cha Cha picture book series. He is also the founding editor of LONTAR: The Journal of Southeast Asian Speculative Fiction, editor of Fish Eats Lion and Fish Eats Lion Redux, and co-editor of A Field Guide to Surreal Botany and Scattered, Covered, Smothered.
