7th issue of LONTAR revealed

LONTAR recently revealed the cover for its upcoming 7th issue in addition to its table of contents. The print edition will be available in Singapore bookstores in October! Keep an eye out for it. I'll have my poem "This Island, New Laos" featured in it.

LONTAR is the world’s only biannual literary journal focusing on Southeast Asian speculative fiction. The journal was founded in 2012, in order to spread awareness of this literature to readers who might not normally be exposed to it, and to celebrate its existence and diversity within the region. Issues #1 and #2 were published by Math Paper Press; issues #3 and onward are published by Epigram Books.
