    Dear Gwee Li Sui

    I enjoyed reading your recent essay on Edwin Thumboo in ‘Asiatic’ (and thanks for referencing my article ‘Merlionicity’).

    I am writing as editor of the journal ‘Shima’

    We wondered whether you might be interested to write us an essay reflecting on the re-publication of ‘Myth of the Stone’ and any aspects of its current reception and engagement.

    Length and format would be up to you (ideally 3000+ words) and we would welcome the opportunity to reproduce any images from the work. Our copy deadline would be June 1st 2015 – happy to discuss any aspects

    Best Wishes


    Professor Philip Hayward
