Amok An Anthology of Asia Pacific Speculative FictionAnd truly fascinating 4 When The Rice Was Gone by Dominica MalcolmI am already a fan of Dominica s work but this story really hooked me in In such a short amount of pages there is a rich world created that in In such a short amount of pages there is a rich world created that easily pictured and enuinely disturbing plus a fascinating representation of an unconventional relationship which is totally believable considering the dire circumstances of the speculative world that s been developed 3 Dreams by Tabitha SinThis story had to o in my top 5 because the horrific imagery of it has stayed in my head for days and days after reading it Any author who can consume my thoughts and have me thinking back to that tale over and over again deserves a serious mention A tragic and beautiful story that ripped my heart and imagination2 Bright Student by Terence TohI have a personal connection to this story as will any young student who has felt the crippling pressure of the pursuit of academic success Here the idea of success at the expensive of one s welfare is dealt with in an amazing paranormal fashion So much vivid imagery and a strong cultural and social message that resonated within me Unmissable1 In Memoriam by Fadzlishah JohanabasI need from the keyboard of Johanabas The cultural setting of this tale is an area I know absolutely nothing about and have never encountered before To be honest at first The Two of Swords glance I didn t expect to like it How wrong could Iet In Memoriam was a stunning heart wrenching tale with a fascinating narrative structure that keeps you desperately flipping the pages It s ending is so incredibly powerful and an important one for people to consider This story is also highly impacting as it s so close to reality things like this could well be sitting in our future and that s an insightful and compelling thing to read about I received a copy of this book in exchanged for a honest review In no way did the author or publishing company influence my reviewThis collection of short stories is absolutely wonderful I liked some stories better than others but for the most part I enjoyed them all to some levelThe author of The Moon Rabbit Jo Wu is the one who contacted me and her s turned out to be my favorite I promise I didn t plan that I loved it because it reminded me so much of Marissa Meyer s The Lunar Chronicles which many of you know I am totally obsessed with All the stories were short hence the name interesting and easy to read I were short hence the name interesting and easy to read I how they mixed the fairy tales and myths with modern and futuristic plots and themes This made them interesting to me and helped make the stories understandable They also cover a lot of areas on the Sinfully Damaged (Master Mistress, globe including India China and Australia Also many types of people different racesenders etc are included in the stories so that already makes it different than most books todayMy only problem was that some of the stories were a little too uick to the point I would have liked description and world building in a couple but of course in short stories you miss out on some of thatI recommend Amok to anyone looking for a book to read little by little over time or who s interested in some lesser known mythsI also love that cover To be honest I really really wanted to like all the stories in this book but some felt a little rushed in their execution or their worldbuilding was not too convincingThe fantasy supernatural stories such as Terence Toh s BRIGHT STUDENT KZ Morano s KITSUNE and THE DEAD OF THE NIGHT by Barry Rosenberg worked better than the science fiction ones which were or less futuristic projections The exception is Eeleen Lee s YAMADA S ARMADA which convincingly depicts a futuristic Southeast Asian City which reminded me of the sterile dystopias depicted in Her or GattacaBut overall this is a ood book by writers who show much potential When I received the review copy of this book I did not anticipate the exhilarating ride that I had signed up for Diving into these WORLDS from the warm fairy tales of childhood to the alternate present which seems familiar to the distant terrifying future was simply AWESOMEI have to say that Amok is the most satisfying anthology I have read in years and it will stay with me for a long time I can see that much care has one into these pages from stories to techniues to proseThis is a collection of shorts in the Ēna genre of speculative fiction defined as

That this trash heap is the only place he has ever really called home A few of the other stories are definitely called home A few of the other stories are definitely of individual mention as well These are some of my other favorites Jax Goss Love and Statues is a Taken By the Sheriff the Deputy Too! great albeit very short story that captures some of the romanticism of poet Robert Burns whose statue plays an important role in the tale A young man sits in aarden at night to see for himself if the statues come to life at night like the exchange student he had a crush on told him Terence Toh s Bright Student is another of my favorites from the collection A student makes a deal with a mystical shop owner in order to Kentucky Grandmothers get an elixir that will make her excel at school and all he wants in return is her shadow In KZ Morano s Kitsune a small town boy makes the mistake of moving to the big city with his were foxvampiricirlfriend Unfortunately she doesn t take to the change of scenery well Fadzlishah Johanabas In Memoriam is the saddest story in the book In the near future a mother wants to forget the car accident that took her son away But in order to do so she will have to forget than just the accident much All in all Amok was an interesting read that I would recommend This is a rich collection of twenty four stories rich in diversity of setting of speculative ideas and of characterThere are a lot of stories here that I loved and only a couple that didn t appeal to me There were also a few I felt could have been shortened but this might just be a reflection of my dislike of descriptionThe editor defines speculative fiction as real world settings in the past present or future with science fiction or fantasy elements and the stories chosen reflect this closelyThe settings are spread widely in the Asia Pacific area and move from the present to the not very distant future However the science fiction and fantasy elements are all in residence on variants of modern or recent Earth there are no alien planets or sword and sorcery fantasy cultures though there is some sword without sorceryThis doesn t mean the ideas are limited The story worlds described may be recognisable as derived from ours or from our folklore but each has one or several differences that fuel the events Some of them are very way out but some are horribly possible How do people Deal With A with making a uarrelling over a mountain of rubbish half the world disappearing in a or a special dimension for healers Even the vampire and the mermaid have unexpected featuresThough the speculative ideas are central to the stories these are basically tales about people In them we meet as central characters parents and Štěky Broka Špindíry grandparents a blind schoolboy students a shopkeeper a soldier aangster a couple of The Blackmailed Secretary ghostbusters a kung fu master and several pairs of lovers Even the moon rabbit and thearden ornament are people Some face a variety of enemies among them an empire building European a Filipino aswang big corporations up to their usual and unusual evilness and a sea witchOthers have to deal with the aftermath of a major war the pain of losing a child their own inability to believe the unlikely and love lost in some odd waysAll lovers of speculative or uirky fiction should find something for them here No messing around here You MUST read this book as soon as it comes out Anyone who likes anything even slightly science fiction will ADORE these stories I am privileged enough to have been If the Magic Fits (100 Dresses, granted an advanced review copy of this anthology whichives me ample time over the next few weeks to now rave about it to everyone I knowAmok is collection of short stories in the Improve Your Communication Skills genre of speculative fiction so covering sci fi elements dystopia fantasy and paranormal but these stories are set within the culture of Asia Pacific countries Australia Malaysia China and Japan to name but a few there are SO many Every story in this anthology was highly enjoyable and totally uniue Kudos to every single author I am honoured to have read your work and entered into your culture for a moment in time I wish I had the time to discuss them all here but for the sake of this review I will limit my commentary to my personal top 55 Where The Fireflies Go by NJ MagasI ll admit as I wasetting near to the end of the book I thought I d already picked my favourites from it but then this story happened The perspective in this tale was unlike anything else in Amok it leapt from the page as a visual and cultural feast of fantasy both dark and light.
