New Book, 99 Ways to Die, Drops in October!

Well, it’s been four years, and so I figured I’d write another post. As you can guess, there’s a new book along with a new trailer. 99 Ways to Die drops Oct. 9. I have a few events coming up, so check out my updated events tab! If you’re in New York on Oct. 11, it would be great to see you at the night-market book launch! Publishers Weekly summed it all up in a starred review for 99 Ways to Die: At the start of Lin’s stellar third Taipei Night Market novel (after...

My West by Southwest Book Tour: The Film

Me and Barry Freaking Gifford! This what I did for the readings for Ghost Month. I flew out to the Bay Area and then took Greyhound buses to Los Angeles, Phoenix, Houston and New Orleans–and I lived to tell the tale and show it, too. Check it...

New Book Plus Book Tour

Word has been out about Ghost Month for a while, but here I am lagging the prepub reviewers. Well, shucks, this Taipei-based mystery is my best-reviewed book yet, garnering stars from both Publishers Weekly and Library Journal! Check out the trailer I made here: I can’t describe the book any better than PW: “For a guy who scoffs at the ghosts revered by so many of his fellow Taiwanese, droll everyman Jing-nan, a night-market food stall manager, ironically finds himself spending...

My Awesome Trip to Singapore!

Refreshing! In early November, I was fortunate enough to attend the Singapore Writers Festival. It was my first trip to the country and I had a fantastic time. I met some awesome writers from all over the world and the staff who put the festival together were on top of their game. Thank you Cheryl Tan for suggesting me as a panelist! Man, it was hot down there. I asked people how early Singapore settlers coped with the heat and humidity. They said that it wasn’t as bad in the early days...

Bootleg Audio of Ed Lin at Litcrawl NYC

I sorta slouch when I read because I lose myself in the words. (photos by Cathlin Goulding) Chances are you missed my reading at the Three of Cups in New York on Saturday, Sept. 14. But you can listen to it! I ran the voice memo app on my phone as I read and it sounds great! It’s a short piece called, “Rich.” Thank you Hyphen Magazine, Karissa Chen, LitCrawl, my fellow awesome readers and to you maniacs who made it out! Rich   They call us the dirty bunch (well, the...

My Amazing Beijing Trip

Kids love me! I found these dudes near the parking lot of the Great Wall (visible in background). I typically don’t travel much, but in April, May and June, I flew across the U.S. and went to Asia twice. I kicked things off by spending a week in Taipei, doing research and pretty much eating every half hour. Then it was off to a bunch of readings and events in New York (the wonderful The Mysterious Bookshop, the incredible Museum of Chinese in America and the always dope The Asian...
