People have written a lot of touchy-feely pieces on this subject but I thought I’d get right to the heart of the matter

petition to make young adult authors stop writing about girls whose lives change when they meet a boy

When she saw him time slowed to a stop.  He was so perfect and she knew her life would never be the same because she had finally found him.  The one.  The first boy she would ever kill.

The Promise Bird
by Zhang Yueran

I just wanted to drop a line from Singapore and say that there’s loads of speculative fiction here, being written and published in the English language here. (Not all of it is written by us - that last book, The Promise Bird, is a translation of a fantasy epic written by Zhang Yueran from China, but she set it in medieval Southeast Asia during the age of Chinese maritime exploration.)

Naturally, almost all of these books feature POC protagonists, because, um, we’re in Asia.

I’d like to say “all”, but there have sadly been Singapore authors who’ve aimed to get a more “international” readership”by writing fantasy novels starring white kids.

The Seeds of Time
by Shamini Flint

This drives me nuts, ‘cos we’re inundated with loads of white-centric UK, American and Australian lit already. But please don’t send my friend Shamini hate mail - I really do like The Seeds of Time, and pretty much all of her other stuff (for adults and kids) is centred on Asian characters in a big way.

isnt it odd how the human mind expands inwardly forever

i can build characters and worlds and universes and define new laws of nature

construct stories and timelines and fit it all together inside my own head

and yet i can’t draw a fUCKING LAMP

Thank you
