Moymoy Lulumboy 6 and other fantasy titles lead Lampara Publishing’s new releases for MIBF 2019

One of the hottest books in the recent staging of the Manila International Book Fair was the sixth installment of Moymoy Lulumboy, a fantasy series written by renowned writer Segundo Matias, Jr.

With the subtitle “Ang Ugat at ang Propseiya” embodied on this offering, the novel takes a transition towards a more “young adult” direction.

“Gusto kong gumawa ng isang YA novel na gaya ng Mga Batang Poz. Yung buhay ng isang teenager o young adult: nag-e-explore, madalas magkamali at pagkatapos ay natututo sa buhay,”said Matias.

The latest part of Moymoy Lulumboy tackles the boy-aswang’s return to the enchanting world of Gabun where he saves his brother Alangkaw and childhood friend Hasmin from evil forces. 

Moymoy Lulumboy: Ang Ugat At Ang Propesiya made its debut to the market during the first day of the Manila International Book Fair (MIBF) last 13 September 2019 at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City. This latest edition serves as a testament to how the series succeeds in debunking the preconceived notions about aswang by going beyond its role in popular culture. Moreso the fact that this Lampara Publishing's latest novel became one of the most-anticipated releases following the recent developments that ABS-CBN picked up the right to develop this beloved fantasy into a multimedia franchise.

Moymoy Lulumboy's sixth installment joins Segundo Matias Jr.'s string of young adult titles such as Angelica, Ang Multo Ng Balete Drive, whose heroine broke ghost rules to save a friend’s life, and Moñito, Ang Mabait na Demonyo, a kindhearted demon born without a horn and a tail. 

Both novels were launched on the same day as Moymoy Lulumboy: Ang Ugat at ang Propesiya.

Of course, completing Matias' showcase during MIBF 2019 is Mga Batang Poz, a 2018 young adult novel whose digital series adaptation is considered to be one of the most viewed streaming titles on the popular online platform, iWantv. The critically-acclaimed novel depicts the lives of people living with HIV-AIDS with a much in-depth approach.
