The next set of four stories is from guest-editor, Yvette Tan, who also guest-edited the PGS Horror Issue. Just as with the previous guest-editor, Charles Tan (no, they’re not related, as they keep on telling many of those who ask), Yvette was able to get a couple of new PGS contributors, Cyan Abad-Jugo and Marguerite Alcazaren de Leon. Following their stories will be a returning PGS contributor, Paolo Chikiamco, and then Yvette will grace us with one of her own.
I feel particularly happy that Cyan’s and Marguerite’s tales are on the longer side–about 7000 words–a length that would’ve given me trouble in the print format of the digest because cost-concerns limited the number of pages I could use per issue. The web format eliminates that concern, but I remember being told by an experienced web-developer to be wary of the TLDR syndrome (“Too Long, Didn’t Read”). So we’ll be having Cyan’s and Marguerite’s stories split into two parts each, posted a week apart so that we will still have these two tales published within the coming month.
And please do share your comments on the stories. I, the guest-editor, and the author in particular, would love to hear what you think of their work. And not just of the stories! I welcome any thoughts on the site itself. Heck, I’d welcome even a “Hi”.
Okay, enough of this. Let’s get going with the second set!
