About the book: Strange skies, lost boys, dreaming girls, childhood robots, and bus rides: Dear Distance is the new story collection by Luis Katigbak, award-winning author of Happy Endings and The King of Nothing to Do.
“Among our foremost writers, Luis Katigbak is of a special class: supreme sui generis, very much his own man and artist. So the kind and character of his works: very rare, exceptional, unique, maverick, exceedingly original fiction: rara avis that’s a quantum leap away and departure… At least three or four in this collection already strike one as veritable classics.”
~ GREGORIO C. BRILLANTES
“Here are gripping stories—like ‘Dear Distance,’ ‘Planetarium,’ ‘Subterrania’—in and for our time of bodymods and virtuWorlds, the fiction terrifyingly unraveling like the night sky now of centuries ago, where our human reality accelerates almost beyond recognition, where perhaps we only imagine we know one another. Here, as we read,
our hearts ache to recover all lost things! (—an old man with his young eyes back.)”
~ GÉMINO H. ABAD
