Flip Lit

Disclaimer/please read this: this is an attempt at a somewhat comprehensive list of literary titles, which I originally created as a Filipino American Literature bibliography in August 2006. Please bear in mind I am limited in my ability to know of every single title out there. That said, I will update this list on a somewhat regular basis, as titles become known to me. I do not include self-published books, books published by self-publishing services, and books published by vanity presses. I do not include chapbooks and CD’s. There are some titles that cross genre, and which I decided to place in one genre over another. I am currently in the process of incorporating Filipino authors in diaspora into this list.
