Better late than never, they say. In this case, better never than late, I think.

Launched yesterday at The Actors Studio, Lot 10
(Information on where the book is available will be posted here
as soon as I get the details)

Feroz Dawson has been writing short stories and screenplays since the early 1990s. Few know of Feroz's unique gift as a writer, although a couple of his early works have been published in anthologies of Malaysian stories. It would have been really sweet if Feroz had lived to see this collection in print. Personally, I would rather he continue to procrastinate on this pet project for another few years than to see him posthumously published.

Wherever you are, dear Feroz, I'm sure you're pleased that Ladder in the Water is finally out. It's a beautiful cover design - and when I get ahold of my copy, I shall most certainly cherish it.
