About Me

Taking a page from Problogger, now seems as good a time as any to write my About Me (beyond that I'm a bibliophile and a stalker).

Charles Tan's fiction has appeared in publications such as The Digest of Philippine Genre Stories and Philippine Speculative Fiction. He has contributed nonfiction to websites such as The Nebula Awards (http://nebulaawards.com/), The Shirley Jackson Awards (http://www.shirleyjacksonawards.org/), SF Crowsnest (http://www.sfcrowsnest.com/), SFScope (http://sfscope.com/), Fantasy Magazine (http://www.darkfantasy.org/fantasy/), Fantasy Literature (http://www.fantasyliterature.com/), BSC Review (http://www.bscreview.com/), The World SF News Blog (http://worldsf.wordpress.com/), and SF Signal (http://www.sfsignal.com). In 2009, he won the Last Drink Bird Head Award (http://www.jeffvandermeer.com/2009/10/04/the-first-annual-last-drink-bird-head-award-finalists/) for International Activism which is described as "In recognition of those who work to bring writers from other literary traditions and countries to the attention of readers in North America, the United Kingdom, and Australia…" He is also a 2011 World Fantasy nominee for the Special Award, Non-Professional category.  You can visit his blog, Bibliophile Stalker (http://charles-tan.blogspot.com/), the Philippine Speculative Fiction Sampler (http://philippinespeculativefiction.com/), or Best of Philippine Speculative Fiction 2009 (http://bestphilippinesf.com/).

We upgraded the site to the new version of Joomla and it killed all of our RSS feeds and links - here's the new link to the latest and greatest Wandering Men Podcast... :)

This is a great site! Glad I found it and will visit it again. As a first time published author I am always looking for resource information. Check out my first and recently released novel, Long Journey to Rneadal. This exciting tale is a romantic action adventure in space and is more about the characters than the technology.

Hi! I'm Honey, a Pinoy book blogger. Anyway, I'm listing down other Filipino book bloggers here, and I was wondering if it's ok to add you.

Mostly, the bloggers there are people I've known for a while, who also write more about foreign books. It would be great to add more people who blog about and write for local publications. Anyway, let me know. Thanks!

I'm following Honey's footsteps and I was wondering if you'd be interested to join a directory of sorts that I created? You can learn more about it here: Filipino Book Bloggers :) I'm trying to come up with a comprehensive list of Filipino book bloggers and encourage discussion by posting a topic related to blogging every Friday, where everyone can leave comments.
