Where I write about Malay sff – sff written in Bahasa Melayu

I have always believed science fiction and fantasy is an universal genre, where everybody can participate it, regardless of language, gender, race etc. However, the community/scene I happen to engage in is heavily Anglophonic – English is such an imperialistic language, pushing out sff written in other languages.

For the Skiffy & Fanty folk, I have written a short article showcasing two Singaporean Malay sff writers who write in Malay. Previously, I have written about Tunku Halim and Eve Shi, two writers who have also written in Malay and Bahasa Indonesia.

Hopefully, in the future, I would like to feature more sff written in Nusantara.
