DISCLAIMER: I have a story in the anthology.

General Review
An interesting anthology of speculative fiction stories with strong Filipino elements.

My favorites are 'Still Life' by Mo Francisco and 'The Mayorga Collection' by Crystal Koo.

I was impressed by the techniques deployed by Eliza Victoria's 'A Fire that cannot by Touched' and Joseph De Guzman's 'The Homo Sapiens Upgrade Initiative'. I enjoyed the language used in 'Bulol'.

A few stories, though, cater to a Filipino-speaking/reading audience.
