‘Asian Review of Books’ moves into print

Hong Kong-based online book review publication the Asian Review of Books has moved into print, reports the South China Morning Post. The first print edition was produced in late July using print-on-demand technology. Along with a selection of reviews of fiction, nonfiction and poetry titles, the publication also contains excerpts, essays and discussion pieces. ‘What’s happening now is the boom in Asian literature within Asia. We’re trying to focus as much as we can on getting the books from Asian publishers,’ said founder and editor Peter Gordon, who started the publication in 2000. The publication has gone from publishing six reviews online per month to four reviews per week. The print publication is being stocked by a number of booksellers, including Paddyfield, Barnes & Noble and Amazon.
