The Malaysian Good Reading Guide!

THERE IS A NEW MALAYSIAN MAGAZINE in town dedicated to books and the reading life and it needs entertaining, edgy and well-written articles, features, interviews and columns. Write in with your proposals for articles and features to Eric Forbes or Janet Tay at We hope some of the best Malaysian (and non-Malaysian) writers will help us create a wonderful literary magazine, one that suggests the qualities that a good book magazine should possess.

nurture and nourish your spirit and soul with books ...

“THE HISTORIAN can tell you what happened. The novelist will tell you what it felt like.” E.L. Doctorow

“BOOKS are the carriers of civilization.” Barbara W. Tuchman

“BOOKS are the best of things, well used; abused, among the worst. What is the right use? What is the one end, which all means go to effect? They are for nothing but to inspire.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

“BUT in my opinion, literature does something much more important—it changes us. It makes us more human, more tolerant and less judgmental.” Alaa Al Aswany

Hi, Eric. Will you commission stories? Or would you consider proposals for articles/interviews? Or both?
