The Turkey City Lexicon is a manual tailored for science fiction writing workshops produced during the birth of cyber punk in Texas in the '70s. 🦃😁🦃
You may find it useful ... or your stories may be dead before they’ve even hit the floor. 🦃😳🦃
I am putting together a version for Singapore and South East Asian writers.
Can you think of any suggested additions, especially those relating to Singapore & South East Asian stories? 🤪🤓🛀

"Long Tailed Macaques are extremely popluar in Indonesia as they are used as Dancing Monkeys, Topeng Monyet is what they are called in the Indonesian Language.
Therefore this project has a major focus on the Dancing monkeys. This extremely cruel practice is where juvenile Macaques are forced to perform (dance, ride bikes) in the loud and very crowded busy streets of Jakarta. An illegal trade in wild Macaques has built up around this phenomena known as ‘Topeng Monyet’.
JAAN observed a worrying increase in the use of these monkeys on Jakarta streets since 2009 and has started to campaign against this abuse ever since."
