Lao American Speculative Literature Anthology

Looking through the recent projects and subjects Lao American writers have been taking on, I think there's enough to put together a Lao American Speculative Literature Anthology, and more than enough of a community that would enjoy it.

A significant amount would be visual art and graphic novel and illustrated stories. It looks like the collection will most likely include many horror stories with ghosts, zombies, traditional spirits, an occasional Lovecraftian entity, and a few forays into fantasy, science fiction, folklore and action-adventure. We wouldn't have that many mysteries or westerns, as far as I can tell.

The first edition would be a slim book. Probably 100 to 150 pages depending on the response and what contributors send, and about $20, or the price of a night out to the movies. 

What would you want to see in this collection?
