CUT-AND-PASTED FROM : http://rocketkapre.com/
Taking our cue from SF Signal, in Rocket Round Table, we pose a single question to those who toil in the fields of Philippine SF. Our aim is to promote reflection and discussion, as well as to simply compare notes on the genre we know and love. This month we ask the question:
What is your favorite Filipino-created Speculative Fiction story?
The story can be prose or komiks, a movie or a television show… any medium by which a narrative can be told is fair game. One caveat though: let’s limit ourselves to works whose authorship is certain, and not Philippine myths/legends. In other words, Florante and Laura qualifies but “Ang Alamat ng Pinya” doesn’t. Let’s leave those for another day. ^_^
Here are the first batch of answers–I’ll compile any further replies in a subsequent post.
Mine would be Luis Katigbak’s “Dear Distance” for the imagery [Ed. Note: An excerpt can be found here.] , Arnold Arre’s Andong Agimat [Ed. Note: Dedicated blog is here.] and Budjette Tan’s Trese series [Ed. Note: Blog and the first seven issues in full can be found here.], the last two because of the well crafted storytelling and use of horror elements in a distinctly Pinoy setting.
