Buy In The Empty Places


Buy Now Button

In collaboration with Lorena Sosa, I edited a collection of short stories and artwork for the Bantuan Coffee Foundation. Bantuan was started by my good friend Robert Porter with the aim of providing education scholarships and safe houses to the victims of child prostitution in Indonesia.

We collected stories and artwork from around the world, many of which have been translated into English for the first time. The book was published in December 2014 as an ebook and limited print run. The print copt costs £10 plus postage of £3 (I’m sending them from Japan). The full list of contributors is:

Chris Beckett
Toni Davidson
Ahmad Yulden Erwin
Rodge Glass
Rodrigo Hasbun
Tendai Huchu
Kushinga Kambarami
Angelo R. Lacuesta
Kirsty Logan
Anneliese Mackintosh
Iain Maloney
Monica Metsers
Tomi Muller
Flora Qian
Mayra Martins Redin
Lakambini A. Sitoy
Suhayl Saadi
Simon Sylvester
Naema Tahir
Esteban Tapella
