About

2022 will see the ten-year anniversary of the groundbreaking publication of Fish Eats Lion: New Singaporean Speculative Fiction. This anthology was one of the catalysts that opened the door of acceptability for speculative fiction in Singapore, leading to an exponential boost that continues to this day. To celebrate this decadal milestone, I have decided to assemble a follow-up anthology, Fish Eats Lion Redux. As with the first book, I am looking for new and innovative original short speculative fiction (which includes science fiction and fantasy, as well as any associated subgenres, such as magic realism, space opera, steampunk, post-apocalypse, etc.), in English. There also needs to be a Singaporean connection: your protagonist is Singaporean (i.e. born or naturalised in Singapore), your protagonist (Singaporean or otherwise) is living in Singapore at the time of your story (i.e. Singapore is the setting), OR your story’s themes are inspired by life in Singapore. As long as your narrative contains at least one of the above elements, you’re encouraged to write whatever story you choose. And please do not feel limited to just writing about our current era; challenge yourself to write a story set in Singapore’s recent or distant past, or in the near or far future (keeping in mind how recent events, and especially the Covid-19 pandemic, will have an impact on days yet to come). Also, the fantastical/science-fictional element must be integral to your story (i.e. the story wouldn’t make any sense if you took it out).
