The Best Asian Short Stories (TBASS) series will showcase arresting contemporary short fiction from Asia. The inaugural edition of The Best Asian Short Stories (TBASS) is due for publishing in 2017.
The Best Asian inaugural edition will choose the best twenty or so short stories from the submissions.
The Best Asian aims to showcase stories offering fresh insights into the experience of being Asian. We seek fiction that transcends borders and social and political divisions, while drawing us into the lives of people and the places where they come from. Send us stories that ask questions and probe ambiguities; stories of uneasy choices, introspection, thought and insights, of moments of epiphany or catharsis. Enthral us with tales of the magical, the profound, the absurd and the chilling. Send us stories that tug at the heartstrings, or leave us raw and shaken. We want writing that will move us, and continue to resonate after the last page is read. We value genuine, sincere writing.
The Best Asian is looking for symphonies of style and heartfelt emotions.
