Ayam Curtain




anthology edited by June Yang & Joyce Chng
published by Math Paper Press


Kong jiao wei , Hokkien, means “speaking bird language.” It is a cock-and-bull story, a flight of fancy and, incidentally , the perfect phrase to describe this collection of microfiction with a quintessentially Singaporean flavour. The reader steps into a technological dystopia one moment and wakes up a crow in the next story, all within the space of a hundred words. Expect a spirit war in underground tunnels, genetically-modified babies and a Singapore overrun by anti-
government spies in these short stories. Be entertained by a motley gang of characters both strange and the deranged, uber-rational and supernatural, feathered or plucked in Ayam Curtain.

My flash fiction The City is featured in this anthology.
