June 22, 2009 Links and Plugs

Ended up working 60+ hours last week for the day job. Oh, and I lost my flash drive, with all my documents and eARCs in the process (I have them backed up but in the unlikely event that they get pirated...). Them flash drives need a self-destruct mechanism.

Oh, and here's a relatively old essay from Vikram Chandra entitled "The Cult of Authenticity" which is apt for most countries (including the Philippines) that uses English. The local literature scene is making the same arguments against texts written in English, at how they're less Filipino because of it.

Here's your zen photo for the day, courtesy of Megan Kurashige:

P.S. Check out Yvette Tan's book cover.

It's out!
