From Back Cover:

“To find this book is like discovering a four-leaf clover in the grass. The Muses do not discriminate among nationalities when they strike.”

Wena Poon, author of Lions in Winter and Alex y Robert

A curious young boy opens a door and is thrust into the Architrave, a fantastical, fractured world upheld by four Columns. Arriving as the Great Gateway War draws to a start, Li-Hsu must fight bravely alongside a host of strange creatures in order to find his way back home.

First published in 1993, Gwee Li Sui’s Myth of the Stone is an endearing tale of one unlikely hero’s journey through an unfamiliar landscape. This 20th anniversary edition of Singapore’s first full-length graphic novel in English comes with bonus features.

Further Praise:

This is a wondrous revisitation of an original, literary and artful tale. Gwee Li Sui is a spell-wright at the height of his imaginative powers.

Aaron Lee, poet

Gwee has created a story that is as multi-hyphenated as he is, as crafty and sly as his, and has depth, wisdom and complexity like his.

Dave Chua, novelist
