EIGHTEEN-year-old Penangite Tey Feng Nian, who goes by the pseudonym Steven Steel on writing community Wattpad, won a Watty Award for his science fiction novel Someone’s In My Head. The debut effort told the story of a man named Jarod Wickernham, whose conscience is conquered by someone else after an automobile mishap.
With the publication of Fahmi Mustaffa‘s Laknat, local publisher Fixi issued a statement today informing followers that all their publications from now on will feature a label stating “Untuk Pembaca Matang“.
Fixi’s rationale was that the brand did not want less-matured audiences approaching their content. This came about after negative response from quarters of the local Malay community to P. Ramlee‘s Sitora Harimau Jadian as well as literature classic Hikayat Raja Babi.
