THE HALO-HALO REVIEW's Mangozine--Issue 10

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 10 -- CLICK on links to go to the reviews.

(December 2020)

Editor's Note:  Welcome to the 10th issue of THE HALO-HALO REVIEW where we provide engagements with Filipino-PilipinZ literature and art and authors/artists through reviews and engagements, interviews and other prose. We hope readers, writers, artists, and publishers will continue to participate and share information about numerous Filipino authors and the wide variety of their writings. 

Submission deadline for the 11th issue has been set at April 15, 2021 (though I will take reviews sooner than the deadline if that is more convenient for the reviewers).
