    1. Not for me, I guess. Maybe short stories aren't really for me. Honestly I seldom read them but late last year, I read a fantastic collections of short retelling stories by Jane Yolen and really loved the whole book, so I thought maybe I'd like this one as well. This is filled horror stories anyway which I liked. In addition to that, the stories are based on the horror stories popularized here in my own country.But the collection fell short. I must say the writing is okay, thus the two stars. Out [...]

    2. I used to be the literary editor for my college paper about three years ago, and I decided that the literary folio's theme is going to be about our fear and fascination of monsters. I maintain that the monsters that plague our lives are mostly products of self-creation; a mere metaphor for our tortured or unsatisfying way of life. In that collection, the stories also got to feature literal monsters, ones that fuel nightmares and hunt us, demanding for blood. I mention this here because it's defi [...]

    3. An anthology horror fiction book with stories that are related to the Philippine literature and beliefs. I decided to read this book as my first this year and I can say that it's not bad at all. My favorite storie are Demon Gaga (It's funny!), The Kambubulag (I was so curious if the story happened in real life), and Little Hands, Little Feet (I wish I heard of this story back then but still glad to read it now). Kudos to the writers and the illustrator of The First of Magdalene!

    4. Great collection of Philippine strange fiction although some were too "strange" that I guess I am a little "dull" to appreciate - but a great read, I assure you. I have to say though that "Salot" really was a hair-raising read, damn. It was insane to read it in the middle of the night, good thing I was in bed with my sleeping family. "Demon Gaga" is hilarious, IMO. My personal pick for creativity is "Best Served Cold". The comic, "The Fist of Magdalene" at the end was too disturbing for my taste [...]

    5. Gripping tales of what goes bump in the dark. The comics at the end of the book was a great treat after reading all that text. I loved the stories and will definitely look for the other titles in the series. I wish we had more horror fiction as scary as this!

    6. Favorites: "Salot" by Eliza Victoria, "K-10 Mushroom" by Marguerite Alcazaren de Leon, and "Little Hands, Little Feet" by Kenneth Yu
