One night snatch | Sincerely Yours at West Space

A couple of months ago, curator Sophia Cai asked me to pen some fanfiction for Sincerely Yours, an exhibition in collaboration with West Space x Arts Project Australia that explores fannish love and devotion.

So of course, : ‘One night snatch, or Brother Wang’s guide to eating out in Tashkent’. I think it’s one of the best and certainly the most embarrassing thing I wrote in the last six months.

If you’re in Melbourne, the exhibition is on until 6 March 2022 and you can also explore the other online pieces on West Space Offsite.

Interview #198: Lian Low | Liminal

I don’t see a divide between literary and genre. Writing spec fic and horror connects me to a sense of who I am, my roots and psyche where the world of the real and the world of the unreal isn’t so binary.

Lian Low

Lian Low is a writer and a former editor-in-chief of Peril. I interviewed her for Liminal, mining her insights on the queer, the monstrous, and the last thirty years of Asian Australian arts and culture.

Crossword #1

It’s baby’s first crossword! A collaboration with the marvellous Erik Agard and you can play on dictionary.com, Merriam-Webster, or in any of the many newspapers that publish the Universal Daily Crossword. Just look for 27 December 2021 or ‘Q&A’ (that’s the theme). Huge thanks to Erik for inducting me into the delightful sorcery of crossword construction.
