Now is the time to talk about this book. Although this is value for the money, the hope was that readers would contact me, and I would then add more stories. In other words, this book was meant to bean experiment on Amazon: a cross between a subscription model and crowdfunding.
"Red Dot" refers to Singapore, SAD: Stories, Art, Digitalia.
