Fish Eats Lion Redux

Fish Eats Lion Redux   Fish Eats Lion Redux alt cover

In 2012, author and editor Jason Erik Lundberg released Fish Eats Lion, the first anthology of literary speculative fiction to be published in Singapore, and opened the floodgates of acceptability for the genre in the island-nation, forever changing the landscape. Now, a decade later, he returns with Fish Eats Lion Redux, proving that SF is still alive and strong in the Lion City. With original stories by Meihan Boey, Ng Yi-Sheng, Nuraliah Norasid, Victor Fernando R. Ocampo, Suffian Hakim, Inez Tan, Sithuraj Ponraj, Cyril Wong, Daryl Qilin Yam and many more, this new collection shows beyond doubt that the realm of the imagination has never been so strange or so local.

Reviews for Fish Eats Lion Redux

“Powerfully imaginative and artfully crafted. Like the best speculative fiction, many of the stories explore with an alternate lens of the past, present or future social commentary on how a society lives. A strong showing from some of the best, as well as some of the newest and freshest, in the business.” —Ng Wei Kai, The Straits Times (★★★★)

Previous Praise for Fish Eats Lion

“Lundberg combines accessibility with a uniquely Singaporean flavor in his selections. SF readers looking to expand their horizons will enjoy visiting new worlds from an unaccustomed point of view.” —Publishers Weekly

“I doubt I’ll read a more engaging collection this year. […] There’s a rich optimism to be found here that speaks of lesser-known spec-fic writers rising to a challenge, and that challenge being more than adequately met.” —Pete Young, Big Sky

“Entertaining in this post-colonial era, it hints at how storytellers can become mythmakers, with the power to change the world.” —Akshita Nanda, The Straits Times

“Lundberg should be congratulated for bringing these works together and seeing the project through to completion. On the whole, this collection of short stories heralds a bright future for speculative fiction in Singapore.” —Cha: An Asian Literary Review
