Spirit of Regret acceptance
My Vietnamese fantasy story “Spirit of Regret” has been accepted for publication in Insignia’s South-East Asian Fantasy Stories. I wrote it after living and working in Vietnam. In the cities, the young couples would sit in yoghurt shops and cafes reading manga and barely talking to each other and it inspired this story. There are also more motorbikes than people in Ho Chi Minh city. I found Vietnam to be a complex and gritty place that actually taught me more about other parts of Asia than I at first realised.
The anthology is due to be published in December/January but the editor is still looking for submissions if anyone has something suitable!
