Here's a new literary journal to check out and possibly submit your work to. Asiatic is put out by the International Islamic University Malaysia. The editors are Mohamad A. Quayum and Adrian Hare, and the journal offers some interesting new poetry and short fiction, as well as reviews and academic articles. Highlights for me include Professor Quayum's tribute to Lloyd Fernando and Dennis Haskell's The Meanings of Malacca: Identity and Exile in the Writings of Ee Tiang Hong, Shirley Lim and Simone Lazaroo.
