While I didn't like this quite as much as the first issue, it's still a really solid, really enjoyable collection of stories and poetry. "What Is Being Erased" in particular was one hell of a sucker punch.

My favourite short stories from this edition were "The Tiger in the Forest Between Two Worlds" by E.C Myers and "Entanglement" by Victor Fernando R. Ocampo. Floating Market by Eliza Chan was also a really beautiful read!

The second issue of Lontar - again with a nice selection of SEA speculative fiction - even the non-SEA Korean one is a good read and being as such I found myself hard to be miffed that it wasn't South East Asian. Good stuff.

Definitely worth trying if you're into sci-fi and fantasy. Also south east Asian pride!
