    Just finished reading your story over at Chizine. Really loved it. Funny and somehow purposeful. And poignant too. Hangs togehter, but not too tightly – by which I mean in a contrived or artifical way. Just wanted to thank you.

    I’m a big fan of Pugelbone. Dark, dreamlike and very original. I envisioned it in claymation, the clusters of grimy spaces and the bizarre, pieced-together monsters themselves. Good job.

    I absolutely adore your stories! Absolute Zero was definitely one of the best short stories that I read last year. I was wondering if perhaps you planned put together a book of your stories?

    I really liked your tales, especially the horror stories in a realistic Indonesian setting. I wonder, some of the stories links are dead because the magazines no longer exist, maybe you could post those stories as originals?
