Signed by the author and numbered of copies. Black birds, with eyes of pale, moonstone white. They are there for the soul of the person who has died, and they are there to embody the grief of those who are required to mourn. It was an appalling thing, to be chosen as a mourner, to feel the tiny claws of the bird's talons clutch at your skin. Mourning meant isolation from society, the need to drape oneself in heavy, black clothing.
Neither to dance, nor even to listen to music, nor to eat foods of particular richness or flavor. To become like unto one of the dead oneself. Love the imagery of the birds here and how elegantly Howard spins out the metaphor for grief that they embody. Those of you who enjoy beautifully crafted prose and baroque imagery that doesn't feel overwrought will really dig this story.
The Mallet of Loving Correction : Selected Writings from Whatever, 2008-2012
The city is without streets: a sequence of courtyards and cloisters and hallways and wide balconies overlooking the lower roofs. Covered all over in words. There are inner chambers too, some for conversation, some for rest. Words: finely inked in countless scripts, in neat lines or exquisite images—a miniature city of words, a fox, a forest, two women holding hands. Twining across the bannisters, the doors, door frames, window frames, ceilings, beds, tables, chairs; embroidered on pillows and sheets and wall-hangings; worked into the blue and white tiles decorating some walls; worked into the gold roofs that shine as bright as the sun.
Perrette stops at the two women. Words make patterns on their aprons like fine embroidery and tumble in dark curls over their shoulders.

Their faces are turned towards one another. I chose this story for the idea of the city—why it exists, what it's made of, how women move in and out of it. I must admit, the actual story of the characters felt a little light to me, but the imagery of the city seized me and wouldn't let go.

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. Straddling the worlds of the mundane and the magical, Spirits Abroad collects 10 science fiction and fantasy stories with a distinctively Malaysian sensibility. I'm in the midst of reading Spirits Abroad, a collection by Zen Cho, and deeply enjoying it. It contains ten stories grouped into three sections: Here, There, Elsewhere.
Elsewhere contains the most speculative of the stories, where as Here and There are more what the literary world terms magical realism.
