read many literary journals or any at all, I suppose , Little Basket 2016 was an absolute break from my usual fare a complementary copy from the Malaysian booth at the London Book Fair, read in one sitting at the hostel bar while eating pizza which may have gotten on some of the pages, oops , and then thoughtfully deconstructed as I lay on my top bunk and contemplated sleep.This is a pretty dang good book Short story collections come in so many forms, but they always feel a bit tame A sci fi collection loses something in its adherence to the genre A generic Europe collection becomes narrowed in its definition of literary A single author s work becomes trite and repetitive Anthologies of all sorts run the risk of getting too far off track and losing cohesion, or becoming too entrenched in their concept and losing originality But then Little Basket 2016 is a bit of all of those things The stories are mostly weirder, genre y style stories, but they re also not just that There s sci fi and horror and fantasy and comics, but there s also politics and contemporary stories and essays and poems As the collection itself states, this is simply New Malaysian Writing Off the beaten track, but there s still a flexibility here in terms of content, and it makes for excellent reading The fact that every contribution is its own whole piece is also refreshing I ultimately only disliked one or two pieces in the entire book, while actively loving several.Because this is a journal with a limited print run, and specifically focused on Malaysian writing in English , I doubt that this is something people will just be able to pick up and read Basically, this review is to say that if you suddenly HAVE a chance to read this collection, you should It s delightfully different flag 15

which, the copyright page adamantly states, there will be no second prints , I felt pretty lucky to get a copy for myself.I d seen the Fixi and Fixi Novo books before although, as someone who has poor Malay skills, I paid attention to the Novo ones lol , and I ve skimmed through a copy of KL Noir once but it didn t really grab my attention I picked Little Basket up because, for one thing, it was way cheaper than any of the other imported books on the shelves RM25, which is as good as it s gonna get for a fresh copy of any book in Malaysia but also because I thought it s high time I try and get a sense of what the literature scene is like in Malaysia, and to start learning some names that may become big one day I ve spent my whole life reading books but never, ever any Malaysian authors.And honestly I m pleased to say I wasn t disappointed Considering that I wrote off the Fixi Novo series earlier on when I put down the copy of KL Noir, I didn t expect that English language Malaysian writing was actually pretty good, and readable I m definitely going to pay attention to the Fixi Novo books after reading this, and I ll try to see if I can get the 2017 Little Basket anywhere.As the Foreweird tells us, the collection is dominated by short stories, and specifically by genre fiction short stories leaning towards the fantastic, horror and sci fi I think only about five or six of the 21 stories are naturalistic stories, with no involvement of bomohs or ghosts The lean towards genre fiction reflects the trend in Fixi Novo publications, and also the trend of popular Malaysian fiction generally As a kid, I remember reading a lot of True Singaporean Ghost Stories and Mr Midnight books, and it s kind of funny to see that that tendency towards the supernatural hasn t really left Malaysian fiction, or what Malaysian readers look for in their fiction.However, when you write in a genre that s been done to death in your country as a comparison, war stories in English literature come to mind, lol , it also means that it s easier to bore the reader with the same common tropes, cliches and plot devices Unfortunately, a few of the stories in Little Basket are guilty of this Tunku Halim s Man on the 22nd Floor started off pretty creepy with the teeth fingernails, but lost my attention when its exposition used the old dead beloved relative trope Chua Kok Yee s Love Potion No 5 even included that good ol suddenly died in an accident trope that I swear featured in almost every other passage that we studied in Bahasa Malaysia There were two forays into science fiction, with Terence Toh s Full Circle and Julya Oui s Transbotica The paradox in the former felt too easy, too recognizable if you ve watched any Doctor Who at all, and the lack of exposition left me pretty disappointed with the story s ending why did the protagonist have to go back in time to pretend to be the old man , especially when I thought the author s vision of dystopia was pretty interesting, and could have been explored way The latter had a great title, and was interesting enough, but could have been a lot punchier especially as it was dominated with dialogue.The stories that I personally believe pulled off the supernatural fantastic horror genre well were Foo Sek Han s Red King, Asleep in the Garden whose protagonist s life story was still pretty cliche, but the execution interesting style makes up for it I loved the idea of the monster that lives forever in our family homes , Marc de Faoite s The Green Fuse the political allegory almost became too heavily obvious, but it was restrained enough , and especially Angeline Woon s The Bloody Keris and Zedeck Siew s Local Fauna with illustrations by Sharon Chin, both of which were my personal favourites from the entire collection I might be a bit biased towards Woon s story, as it was a retelling of the legend of Puteri Gunung Ledang, and I m usually a sucker for modern re writes of folk tales, especially so with local ones as I didn t grow up in a household where I got to hear a lot of them Still, it made excellent use of the word limit and the cool emotionlessness of her sentences especially in the final scene made me feel horror than any of the other overtly horror genre stories in the Basket As for Siew s story, the editors compared it to Borges in their Foreweird , which I think is one of the best compliments a fantasy supernatural writer could receive, and which I think is deserved as well The collection of imaginary South East Asian beasts was delightful to read, and it made me excited to note from the author bio that Siew has a full length collection of these in the works.So yes, some of the genre fiction was a bit disappointing and may have been better suited for a longer word count, but the writers who can pull off the genre fiction can really pull it off Besides, this is all still just my personal opinion, and maybe the wider Malaysian readership aren t bored by these kind of stories, and in choosing them the editors were choosing stories that would appeal to people As the literature scene in Malaysia isn t that big anyway, I can understand the need to just give people what they ve proven to enjoy already.The short stories that weren t genre fiction were a mixed bag as well For the most part, I have to say that I enjoyed them a lot than the supernatural ones I noticed they tended to be a lot nostalgic, with a lot of them featuring either children or childhood memories They were quiet reflections on Malaysian life, and I wonder if that s due to the overtly Malaysian specificity of the collection, and of what Fixi Novo looks for generally from their writers in the manifesto from the book s frontmatter, the third point is that Fixi Novo looks for stories about the urban reality of Malaysia , adding that, if you want to share your grandmother s world war 2 stories, send em elsewhere I wonder if asking specifically for Malaysian writing on Malaysia inevitably leads to self reflection a lot of the naturalistic stories are reflections on Malaysia written as if the author s don t live in Malaysia any I know from the author bios that a few of them don t, so maybe that s why.Eileen Lian s The Pawn Shop and Kris Williamson s Family Business are both simple short stories that offer snapshots of a specific aspect of Malaysian life from a child s point of view, and I think the technique of using a child s POV makes the emotions they convey effective There was also Ling Low s Wanton Noodles my personal favourite of the naturalistic stories and William Tham Wai Liang s essay Diaspora , both of them written by Malaysians living abroad reflecting on the distance between the home of their childhood selves and the home of their current selves Wonton Noodles offers a snapshot of a past life, like Lian s and Williamson s stories, but is also complex from how it juxtaposes nostalgia for a childhood memory alongside the disillusionment of growing up It is a short story about the memory of a beloved wanton noodle stand, the best in Ipoh , and the memory of a beloved uncle, and how both memories inextricably linked to the protagonist s image of a Malaysia now lost to them when their family immigrated to Australia, where when we wanted wanton noodles, we had to go to Chinatown are dashed when the family returns for a long overdue visit to their home town Diaspora is also laden with sadness, the sadness of knowing that one s memory of home no longer reflects the current reality of it Again like in Lian s, the emotion is effectively conveyed through a juxtaposition of the author s internal feelings with an external environment that is lonely and sad, with the repeated references to a frigid northern city in Canada where the author worked for a few months.All in all, it was a fun collection for a decent price, and I d explore future collections and publications from Fixi Fixi Novo It got me really excited to explore of Malaysian culture and every time I finished a short story I always got busy Googling the authors so I could start knowing some names Generally, the collection was pretty hit and miss and I wouldn t necessarily recommend it for its literary merit, but the content of the stories is solid enough reading for anyone looking for representations of a diverse Malaysia.Rating 3 5 Favourite stories Local Fauna Zedeck Siew Sharon Chin , The Bloody Keris Angeline Woon , Wanton Noodles Ling Low flag 3 likesLike see review View 2 comments Jul 24, 2016 Jake
