Marvelous maiden voyage

By Ruel S. De Vera

Last updated 06:57pm (Mla time) 11/20/2007MANILA, Philippines―There is a fine tradition of realistic fiction in Filipino literature,” Neil Gaiman explains. “We wanted to encourage unrealistic fiction.” Those words, appearing in “The Sandman” author’s Foreword, exemplify the dark heart, and considerable soul of “Expeditions: The Philippine Graphic/Fiction Awards Vol. 1―Comics” (Fully Booked, 2007, 110 pages) and “Expeditions: The Philippine Graphic Fiction Awards Vol. 1―Prose” (Fully Booked, 2007, 190 pages). And any reader will recall that Gaiman had no idea what awaited him in the Philippines: “What I knew of the Philippines could have been written on the wing of a small butterfly.”

Boasting a terrific cover by “New Avengers” artist Leinil Francis Yu and helped by a healthy heaping of horror, these books shine with potent talents.

Now Im starting to fire up! and excited for tomorrow night!

According to Fullybooked Neil Gaiman already signed the books that will be sold at the event and he will be tired for sure at the Ad Congress, but they say that for sure Neil Gaiman will be there this  Sunday’s event and will award the winner of the contest and also host the event.

And if …
if… Neil Gaiman arrive early tomorrow in Manila and seems not to feel tired, he may come there at the Fullybooked Bonicafio High Street branch at Saturday night  to do signings and for a surprise appearance.
But as they say…all is not sure for Saturday.
but all engines go for Sunday.

see you all there!!!
