Reviews is an archive of writings by writers and journalists whose work would otherwise vanish from sight. Some fine writing is lost as the media in which it is published like an evening paper in the metropolis is by its very nature ephemeral. Asia-Major can never be a repository of millions of pages but would endeavour to preserve a modest amount of these works. Asia-Major will retain the rights to refuse any contribution deemed unsuitable for it. It is hoped that this would allow writers to preserve and showcase their work available for viewing from anywhere on the web. See “About” for more details.
