Annika Aschberg: Cambodia
Just had a story accepted, wonderfully, by ChiZine. It’s called “Intertropical Convergence Zone” and it’s based very loosely on G-30-S (Gerakan 30 September, or the 30th of September Movement). Indonesian children know what I’m talking about. American kids have Paul Revere. We have G-30-S.
Not yet sure when it will be out – sometime within the next half-year. I am very psyched about this to say the least. It’s probably the most political story I’ve written and as a political science major and someone who was very affected by the New Order, it’s extraordinarily validating.
I am in Surabaya, Indonesia, right now. The City of Heroes. It’s filled with crocodiles and submarines.
