LONTAR is the world’s only biannual literary journal focusing on Southeast Asian speculative fiction.
LONTAR has been previously featured on Boing Boing, Adventures of a Bookonaut, Diversity in SF&F, Rocket Kapre, SF Signal and io9.
“Learning real things about a region of the world relatively unknown to me is an unexpected bonus of the great stories in LONTAR. With each tale, I was allowed a view through the eyes of someone whose experiences and orientation are so far separated from my own and yet so similar that the journey is wondrous.”
—Andrea Pawley, Weightless Books
broad range of speculative fiction showcased here with a guaranteed burst of Southeast Asian culture. [...] LONTAR has produced quality, intricate and
original work that entertains and distils a yearning in the reader for more.”
