You’ll find plenty of heat in this collection of stories, gathered from six different Southeast Asian nations: Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines, and Singapore. As part of our selection process, we’ve tried to select the more unexpected, thoughtful and risk-taking from the available pool of writing, forging from them a compendium of twisted, tender visions of our region.
Heat is part of a threesome of Southeast Asian urban anthologies. The other two are called Flesh and Trash.
