SWF 2016 – LAUNCH: this is how you walk on the moon

  • The Arts House 1 Old Parliament Lane Singapore, 179429 Singapore (map)

SINGAPORE WRITERS FESTIVAL 2016 presents – LAUNCH: this is how you walk on the moon, an anthology of anti-realist fiction published by Ethos Books. Free admission.

Looking for strategies to cope with existing under an omniscient narrator? Keen to optimise your interactions with ancient deities? Perhaps you’re a star in a corner of the Milky Way with a penchant for human-gazing, or even a young girl confronting the disturbingly solid spectre of her ethnic identity… 

this is how you walk on the moon is an anthology edited by Patricia Karunungan, Samuel Caleb Wee, and Wen Pu Wong, it has been described "a practical field guide to the vagaries of our contemporary universe" and "a handbook for navigating the sublime, the subjective, and the inexplicable".

Collected in this anthology are 25 previously unpublished short stories from award-winners and newcomers alike—fictions that declare the infinite permutations of reality, while exploring the rarity of human connection across all possible worlds. Come leap off the edge of all known existence with us, and let editors Patricia Karunungan, Samuel Caleb Wee, and Wong Wen Pu ease your landing into this bouquet of prose.
