    PDFEPUB ahalico #191; Spirits Abroad Kindle #223; spirits download, abroad epub, Spirits Abroad MOBII have to admit it was with some trepidation that I received the news that I had won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway I've not had great experiences with works set in South East Asia eg The Book of Salt The Harmony Silk Factory I am happy to say however that this work was head and shoulders above them both as an authentic South East Asian voice and as an engaging read As a Singaporean I can tell you that her depiction of Malaysia and Malaysians is the real deal folks For example she does not make the egregious mistake of describing the smell of a durian from the POV of a South East Asian as the odour of rot and decay Instead she describes it as a creamy rank richness She does not have uneducated Hokkien hard labourers fling out statements in the images and rhythms of educated Englishmen saying things like Will I

    PDFEPUB ahalico #191; Spirits Abroad Kindle #223; spirits download, abroad epub, Spirits Abroad MOBIZen Cho utterly charmed me on a Loncon panel about South and Southeast Asian SFF so of course I bought her book of short stories which do indeed reflect her boisterous whimsical personality As a Chinese Malaysian living in London she draws from several cultures in her storytelling and the book is divided into three sections Here stories set in Malaysia There stories set in England and Elsewhere stories set well elsewhere For the non Malaysian reader it's a great way to be introduced to various aspects of the culture including food language and folklore and for the Malaysian reader it's S

    PDFEPUB ahalico #191; Spirits Abroad Kindle #223; spirits download, abroad epub, Spirits Abroad MOBIThis Malaysian and Malaysian diaspora fantasy shorts collection brings extremely intimate and personal concepts into the sphere of fantasy fiction like unexpected difficulty in schoolwork or performing arts after being at the top of your class or blooming into your suppressed bisexuality Far from being the fantasy of broad sweeping epic stories about clashes between dynasties or magical orders this is the fantasy about household magic about supernatural creatures that have the same feelings and hopes and family structures we mortals do and about one on one friendships and relationships They even enjoy the simple hedonic pleasure of foodOther key themes of the book's fifteen stories include Malaysia's multiculturalism with Chinese traditions coexisting alongside Christianity a
