UP Press

The University of the Philippines (UP) Press announced the launching of several of its titles in digital format made available via Amazon. Even though it is a sad time for e-book lovers as e-book pioneer and Project Gutenberg founder Michael Stern Hart recently passed away, the conversion of UP Press’ titles is a positive step in terms of getting our own budding authors to get worldwide recognition.

Titles included are: Beautiful Accidents by Ian Rosales Casocot, Geek Tragedies by Carljoe Javier, A History of the Philippines by Samuel K. Tan, Revisiting Usog, Pasma, Kulam by Michael L. Tan, Surgeons Do Not Cry by Ting Tiongco, Damaged People by Karl R. De Mesa, Fourteen Love Stories by Jose Dalisay Jr. and Angelo R. Lacuesta, Philippine Postcolonial Studies: Essays on Language and Literature by Cristina Pantoja, Hidalgo by Priscelina Patajo-Legasto, The Gaze by Arvin Abejo Mangohig, Hairtrigger Loves: 50 Poems on Woman by Alfred A. Yuson
