Other Endings by Victoria Kapauan-Gaerlan

If you’re into reading short fiction, I’d like to invite you to download my ebook “Other Endings.”

It is a collection of short stories and poetry that I’ve written through the years and have decided to gather into this electronic volume.

Why “Other Endings”? I’ve always thought that real life events never end conventionally, that there is always a twist of fate that makes each experience different even if the same person goes through them over and over again.

Who exactly are you, author? If I may quote from the “About the Author” section of the ebook:

Born Maria Marina Victoria Kapauan in 1963, Victoria Kapauan-Gaerlan started writing at the age where most girls were in high school, going out to parties and meeting boys. She even gave up high school so that she could attend the Silliman National Summer Writers Workshop in 1982. It did not seem to be a difficult choice to her at the time.

She was a fellow to the UP National Writers Workshop in Diliman two years later. She believes that having been to the Dumaguete workshop steeled her for the butcher’s shop that the UP workshop figuratively resembled.

In between I.T. work and family, she managed to show up at the MSU-IIT National Writers Workshop and Literature Conference in Iligan City in 1997, and then the UP Mindanao Workshop held in Davao a year after that.

Primarily into fiction writing, she had a short spell of poetic inspiration, which produced most of the poems in this volume. More poems and short stories exist in the heaven where all good computer hard disks go when they die. They have yet to prove that there is such a thing as reincarnation.

In a brilliant display of delayed reaction, she has finally decided to gather her work in an e-book volume.

The pdf file is 575kb and may be downloaded by clicking on the cover shot above. Many thanks to Bobby Timonera for generously allowing me to use his photograph of Lake Sebu on the cover.

Hope you enjoy it.
