I’m glad to announce that the third volume of bestselling Malaysian dark side anthology KL NOIR – BLUE will be launched on Monday 21st August, and I’m in with an epically graphic story, “Bathroom Wall” – an obvious citation to Faster Pussycat’s cheesy hit, and an ode to the average Malaysian Friday Night’s man.
According to FIXI, the first print of the book has sold out to shops even before the book’s officially out, so congratulations to them, to editor fantastic Eeleen Lee, and to all the authors involved.
Here’s a synopsis:
“KL Noir returns and the third time’s a charm with this selection of 15 stories about law and disorder in the metropolis. Direct from the recesses of the city lurk tales of murder, suicide, rival gangs, robbers and sleaze, mixed in with dystopian visions, black magic and the occasional decomposed corpse. Plunge deep into the underworld where the guilty and innocent rest in peace — or rest in pieces.“
And now, I’ll give you a quick sneak preview of my story:
“Still in disbelief, I feverishly pointed the cursor over the attachment and clicked on it. She was right: a piece of her was looking at me from the screen, stretched into a striped micro top that did not leave much imagination as to the shape of her breasts. They protruded from the upper left side of the picture, profiling a gracious line that curved down to connect with her exposed stomach. Her belly button was like a vortex in the midst of an ocean of white flesh without any ripples — flat and inviting.“
For more masturbation material, buy the book at every major Malaysian and Singaporean bookstore, or wait until I post an Amazon purchase link.
There will be a launch at bookstore magnificus Kinokunya KLCC, in Kuala Lumpur, on Monday 21st from 8 to 9 p.m. I will be of course reading and make an ass out of myself as usual, so please come and bring the rotten tomato bags… but be prepared: I will fight back!
Also, keep tuned as my first sweet’n’sour travel-noir will be featured on yet another of FIXI NOVO’s upcoming short story anthologies, “Lost in Putrajaya”.
