Balikbayan BOXes: For Better or For Worse
Balikbayan BOXes: For Better or For Worse
This is a thoroughly delightful book that will be fun reading for all Filipinos and their friends, neighbors, coworkers and other associates. In this collection of sixteen entertaining essays, the author presents a splendid explanation of scores of quaint characteristics of traditional Filipino customs, words, family names and sounds - including tongue twisters. The title essay contends that the big majority of the almost 12 million Filipinos overseas who send Balikbayan boxes full of goodies are displaying misplaced compassion since it develops in their relatives an eternal dependence on others. There are amusing travel stories and light social commentary.

Geek Tragedies
Warning: Great Writing Inside (not bragging here, just being honest)

The curse of the intelligence is not being able to turn it off – as the characters in Carljoe Javier’s debut collection of short fiction, GEEK TRAGEDIES, realize. Whether they imagine having superpowers or actually use a time machine, the people in Javier’s stories are unable to stop thinking, speculating, dreaming, and hoping – which makes every story a delight to read.

One of Javier’s strengths is his ability to render meticulous telling details (from comics and video games to pop culture and even the shockingly mundane– all are important) and weave them into dazzling textures that enrich every story’s narrative. The humorist sensibilities are also present, either seething just below the surface of things, or popping out like a welcome surprise.
Now stop reading this and get on with the book. Now.

Geek Tragedies is Carljoe Javier's first collection of short stories. It features realist fiction, fantasy, sci-fi, and horror. In it you'll find zombies, alien-hands, comic book geeks, convention-attending promo girls, an iPod time machine, and a generation starship filled with people hypnotized by and dancing to "Laban o Bawi.

About the Geeks

Carljoe Javier
was born in Quezon City, Philippines. When he was a young boy his family migrated to Southern California and it was there that he would discover and develop his love for sci-fi, comic books, fantasy, video games, and pretty much everything geeky you can think of. In high school he returned to the Philippines. He would finish his education at the University of the Philippines in Diliman with an undergraduate degree in English and an MA in Creative Writing. He continues to cultivate his love of various geekdoms while also trying to make a contribution to literature through writing and being active in the publishing industry. He also teaches on occasion, contributes to magazines and online sites every once in a while, and blogs at lumpenculturati.wordpress.com. His writing reflects the various backgrounds that he contends with, exploring the psyche of the diaspora, geekery, Fil-Am consciousness, and also unabashedly addressing matters of the heart.

Josel Nicolas
believes in feeling the noize, and drawing to it naked. He draws and writes Windmills, the third book just released in late 2010, and has a monthly four-page strip called “Doctor Brick: Balloon + Scientist Problem Solver” running in the kiddie magazine K-Zone.
