Update - June 19, 2020

One month ago, we announced our book AFTERSHOCK: Essays from Hong Kong. Since then, we have been humbled by the level of support and encouragement from our readers—we cannot thank you enough. We are now busy preparing for a second printing and to expand our channels of distribution. Check back later for more details!

An update for overseas customers who bought the book online: as of last week, we have already mailed all of our orders. Unfortunately, it may take a while for the book to reach you. The COVID-19 situation meant that efficient, affordable air mail from Hong Kong was no longer available for the vast majority of countries. Other premium delivery services (e.g. FedEx) were charging prices that we felt were disproportionately high. As a result, we had no choice but to opt for surface mail with no real-time tracking information. We understand this may be frustrating and we're sorry about that. Thank you for your patience and understanding!

Update - June 6, 2020

We would like to thank our readers for making AFTERSHOCK: Essays from Hong Kong a sold-out success! Our book was meant as a limited edition, and we're so happy that it is now in the hands of hundreds of readers in Hong Kong and overseas. On June 6, we are closing down our online store. Limited copies of the book are still available at the bookstores listed above.

For those who previously bought the book online, we are in the process of mailing your orders. Most local customers have already received the book. For deliveries outside of Hong Kong, unfortunately there will be long delays due to coronavirus-related service disruptions. We thank you for your patience. If you have questions, let us know at
