Re-Thinking Singapore Writing

The closure of Kinokuniya at JEM leaves just two branches of the iconic Japanese bookstore in Singapore. Neil Humphreys penned a Facebook post describing his thoughts. While I share much of his sentiments, the reality is that the fiction industry has changed. Things are never going to return to the way they used to be. […]

Book Review: CARBON by Andrew Vachss

Cyberpunk. Fantasy. Noir. Blend them together and you get Carbon. Late noir grandmaster Andrew Vachss wrote his Burke novels to expose the horrific reality of child abuse in America.

Angel of Blades Part 5

Angel A perfect darkness engulfed Sabaia’s arena. Striding through the stairwell door, Luisa saw nothing but pitch blackness, heard nothing but total silence, sensed nothing but complete emptiness. Her mental map spanned the entirety of the circular hall. The walls were smooth, the floor level, all traces of the previous battle completely erased. The fissures […]

Angel of Blades Part 3

Crimson Twilight She burned. She Leveled. She burned again. Over and over and over again, so many times she had lost count.

A Quiet Night in Wai Yuen Part 3

Next to it, Tang’s flying wagon was a child’s toy. There were twelve SOC operators, laden with tactical gear, and the Hung Syun needed time […]

A Quiet Night in Wai Yuen Part 2

Suffering When someone fires a gun in Singyeung, the police send everyone. Patrol officers sealed off the scene. Rapid Deployment Force cruisers swooped down from the skies, forming the inner cordon. Right behind them, a Hung Syun descended in stately majesty. Equipped with long guns and tactical gear, a squad of SOC operators poured out […]
