    1. Spoke to my frame of mind as I'm between two homes. I enjoyed the mix between prose and poetry, and the editors did a nice job in ordering linked themes. Huge range on the quality of contributions.



    2. This was the first book of SingLit I've bought (in support of the #BuySingLit campaign!). I believed I couldn't go wrong with an anthology about travel, a topic so close to my life and heart, and I was, for the most part, correct. As with all anthologies, my enjoyment of its contents varied somewhat: most of the poetry didn't really do it for me, but there are some really enjoyable short stories in here.

    5. Caveat: I'm refraining from giving a star rating as i have a short story published in this anthology.This was pretty hit and miss, but there were some enjoyable stories in here. My favourites were JY Yang's Pocket Cities (plot was short on substance, but i liked the allegorical play), Jeremy Tiang's Terminal (he has the rare gift of being a funny writer when he wants to), Yeo Wei Wei's Chin Chin (although the ending was somewhat unsatisfying) and Boey Kim Cheng's Between Stations (what a fantast [...]
