Fil-American author Lysley Tenorio is coming to Manila to give a talk and do a signing on February 9 at 4 pm, at the National Book Store flagship in Glorietta 1.
We’re looking for three volunteers to review Tenorio’s short story collection, Monstress. We’ll give you a copy, and expect the critique—minimum 500 words—by 31 January. (Ordinarily we’d assign the book to our regulars, but our last experiment at getting people to review books was a terrible flop. Only Cacs, lestat and Turmukoy delivered. Yes, you should feel guilty.)
If you’re interested, sign up in Comments and attach a sample paragraph from a review you have written. The names of the chosen reviewers will be posted tomorrow morning.

Thanks for sending your samples! As luck would have it we visited the National HQ today and got a stack of books to review. We’ll post the assignments tomorrow morning.
