The Spring 2017 issue of LONTAR: The Journal of Southeast Asian Speculative Fiction.

This issue of LONTAR presents speculative writing from and about Singapore, the Philippines and Thailand.

Inside these pages, you’ll find: fishing for mermaids in the Mekong River by Alyssa Wong; an otherworldly ancestral homecoming by Michael Janairo; a rebellion against inevitable eugenics by Clara Chow; snapshots of the fantastic in the mundane by Wilfred Cabrera; and speculative poetry by Tilde Acuña, Bernise Carolino, Judith Huang, Desmond Kon Zhicheng-Mingdé, Christina Sng, Sharlene Teo and David Wong Hsien Ming.

Also included is a special supplement: part one of Dean Francis Alfar’s brilliant novel Salamanca, winner of the Palanca Award Grand Prize for the Novel and Gintong Aklat Award for Literature, serialised here for the first time anywhere.

LONTAR is the world’s only biannual literary journal focusing on Southeast Asian speculative fiction.
