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 third issue has been set at Jan. 31, 2017 (though I will take reviews sooner than the deadline if that is more convenient for the reviewers).
As well, send me links to reviews/engagements with Filipino literature! These links will be aggregated in various genre categories displayed HERE. Updating the genre categories with links will occur as information is received.
An interesting feature of The Mangozine is its putting online various Introductions, Prefaces, Afterwords and Authors' Notes to published books. The presented essays to date corroborate the need for a journal like THE HALO-HALO REVIEW -- they highlight the uniqueness of English-language Filipino literature that cannot be subsumed in other categories like "Asian American" or "People of Color" literature. Feel free to suggest other books which may offer useful contributions that deserve to be republished online.
I also call out to readers to SHOW SOME LOVE TO A FILIPINO AUTHOR(S) by sharing statements as to why they love their writing. All writing styles. You can focus on authors dead or alive, send as many statements as you are moved to write. You can praise authors not already mentioned or still to be mentioned. You need not be a critic, writer, scholar or teacher (though all are welcome). You need only be a Reader. (Examples are available at Issue 1, Issue 2 and Issue 3).
Please note, too, that one of our features in our inaugural issue, Jessica Hagedorn's essay regarding Jose Garcia Villa and THE ANCHORED ANGEL, will be taken offline on Sept. 1, 2016. Feel free to enjoy reading it HERE for the rest of August!
The Mangozine is possible not only due to the volunteer efforts of our reviewers but also those who transcribe from written texts; for the latter service, we thank Amy Pabalan for their help.
