SPIRITS ABROAD

Buku Fixi (Fixi Novo)
3

Here there be dragons ... and aunties. Campbell-nominated author Zen Cho's short story collection SPIRITS ABROAD "refreshingly reimagine[s] the idea of home and tradition and family without offering tidy or pat resolutions" (The Star). Crawford Award winner.



A Datin recalls her romance with an orang bunian. A teenage pontianak struggles to balance homework, bossy aunties, first love, and eating people. An earth spirit gets entangled in protracted negotiations with an annoying landlord, and Chang E spins off into outer space, the ultimate metaphor for the Chinese diaspora.

The ebook edition of Zen Cho's Crawford Award-winning SPIRITS ABROAD features 15 speculative short stories, author commentary, and an ebook-only cover by artist Likhain (likhain.net).
