This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Fish Eats Lion collects the best original speculative fiction from Singapore - fantasy, science fiction, and the places in between - all anchored with imaginative methods to the Lion City. These twenty-two stories, from emerging writers publishing their first work to winners of the Singapore Literature Prize and the Cultural Medallion, explore the fundamental singularity of the island nation in a refreshing variety of voices and perspectives. This anthology is a celebration of the vibrant creative power underlying Singapore's inventive prose stylists, where what is considered normal and what is strange are blended in fantastic new ways.
[Note: This ebook edition does not include Stephanie Ye's "The Story of the Kiss", only available in the print edition.]
"Lundberg combines accessibility with a uniquely Singaporean flavor in his selections. SF readers looking to expand their horizons will enjoy visiting new worlds from an unaccustomed point of view." - Publishers Weekly
"I doubt I'll read a more engaging collection this year. [...] There's a rich optimism to be found here that speaks of lesser-known spec-fic writers rising to a challenge, and that challenge being more than adequately met." - Pete Young, Big Sky
"Entertaining in this post-colonial era, it hints at how storytellers can become mythmakers, with the power to change the world." - Akshita Nanda, The Straits Times
