Third revision of the About this blog page follows:
Robert JA Basilio Jr. currently works for a Philippine news website.
One of his short stories, The Man Who Came Home, was chosen as honorable mention during the 2000 Philippine Free Press Literary Awards. The same piece was anthologized in Nine Supernatural Stories, published by the University of the Philippines Press.
He was a fellow for fiction in English of the 1995 National Writers’ Workshop in Dumaguete City and the 1998 University of the Philippines Summer Writers’ Workshop held in Baguio City.
He can — and likes to — stay at home for long periods of time.
He began to blog sometime in 2006.
Nothing in Particular used to be a weekly column that ran for one and a half years at a Manila daily from June 2004 to early 2006. It was discontinued when he moved to another newspaper and his requests for space were unacted upon.
Now, he blogs, somewhat irregularly, for GMANews.TV.
