Synopsis:

The Malaysian Book of The Undead
is a compendium of multicultural ghosts, spirits and emanations. Discover their origins, characteristics, and, whenever possible, how to make sure they stay away from you.

This chatty and occasionally ironic guide is sure to come in handy each time you hear something go bump, or even “kak-kak-kak-kak-kak”, in the night.

Bio:

Malacca-born Danny Lim is primarily a writer and photojournalist. His features and photo essays have been published locally and internationally by the Far Eastern Economic Review, The Smithsonian Institute, Vogue (Italy), Off The Edge, The Sun, The Edge, The Nut Graph, The Malaysian Insider and Malaysiakini. He is the winner of two local awards for a short documentary and a regional award for his feature photography. This is his first book.

Launch date: 31 October 2008. Details will be announced next week :-)

I will be giving away 10 free, autographed copies to bloggers in Malaysia who email me on 31 October at matahari.books@gmail.com . Not a minute before that date, y'hear? And if you are not a blogger, well, it takes only a few minutes to rectify that.

Matahari Books are nicely designed, unlike a majority of Msian books that look like utter crap. i oso feel like collecting all of them.
