My story, Phoenix Tile” is out now in this mon­th’s is­sue of khōréō. If you’d pre­fer to wait, it’ll be avail­able for free on­line in two weeks, but I can say that the whole is­sue is filled with beau­ti­ful sto­ries.

This was­n’t a story I was­n’t sure would find a home, be­cause it feels so per­sonal to me, de­spite be­ing an out­landish tale of trick­ster gods and mahjong ta­bles, it’s also my per­sonal, sec­ond gen­er­a­tion im­mi­grant his­tory, re­fracted through Hong Kong movies, and the end­less drama of yum cha. I hope you en­joy!
