I established LONTAR: The Journal of Southeast Asian Speculative Fiction in 2012 as a biannual venue devoted to spreading awareness of and celebrating non-realist writing from and about Southeast Asia; the tenth and final issue was published in May 2018. I was aided in my efforts by poetry editor Kristine Ong Muslim and comics editor Adan Jimenez.
