THE HALO-HALO REVIEW'S MANGOZINE, Issue 4

In addition to aggregating reviews from the internet, THE HALO-HALO REVIEW presents The Mangozine which features new reviews and serves as the online publisher for reviews and other engagements (e.g. book introductions) published in print but not yet available within the internet.  Other features, including author interviews and reader testimonials, also will be presented. The following presents a Table of Contents for Issue 4 -- CLICK on links to go to the reviews.

ISSUE 4
(February 2017)

Editor's Note:  Welcome to the fourth issue of THE HALO-HALO REVIEW where we provide engagements with Filipin@ literature and authors through reviews and engagements, interviews and other prose. We hope readers, writers and publishers will continue to participate and share information about numerous Filipino authors and the wide variety of their writings. 

The Mangozine's Review Copy information is HERE; you are encouraged to fatten up the list as well as pick some to review! Submission deadline for the fifth issue has been set at Nov. 15, 2017 (though I will take reviews sooner than the deadline if that is more convenient for the reviewers).
