Archive 2012

Below are seven stories and nineteen poems, a translation and a book review. While some of these have been written much earlier, all were granted online presence this past year. I don't think I can assemble something like this for 2013. One reason is that I plan to write more in Filipino. Also, I've got something happy (and most likely unpublishable) planned for my English, and tekstongbopis shall have to take the brunt of that.

But we all know the song. Plans are plans, and life is life.

Let this offering close my 2012. I'd be gratified if you'll keep one or two with you, something to take home to your newer year.
