||Last year, to give better definition to our
list, we divided it.
Literary titles are now published under the
Orchid Pavilion imprint, crime
fiction under the Black Butterfly
imprint. The rest of the list continues under our original
Asia 2000 logo.
Encouraged by the success of Alex Kuo's
Lipstick and Other Stories,
which received an American Book Award in 2002, we have continued to
search out writers off the beaten path, and, in our own small way, to
hack at the conventions of publishing.
China on the Lam
is literally a trek through China from North to South by rice paddy
trails. Ray Hu's
Brave Land follows ordinary people on a
unconventional journey through the incredible history of Twentieth
Century China. In A Small Place in the Desert,
Christopher New goes
where Hong Kong literary publishing has never gone before, to Egypt,
while Barry Kalb's first novel
Cleaning House makes prophetic fun of a
mysterious virus that threatens the human race.
