From Wikipedia, "Philippine mythology and folklore include a collection of tales and superstitions about magical creatures and entities. Some Filipinos, even though heavily westernized and Christianized, still believe in such entities. The prevalence of belief in the figures of Philippine mythology is strong in the provinces. Because the country has many islands and is inhabited by different ethnic groups, Philippine mythology and superstitions are very diverse. However, certain similarities exist among these groups, such as the belief in Heaven (kaluwalhatian, kalangitan','kamurawayan), Hell (impiyerno, kasanaan), and the human soul (kaluluwa)." Stories in this collection include The Tobacco of Harisaboqued, The Pericos, Quicoy and the Ongloc, The Passing of Loku, The Light of the Fly, Mangita and Larina, How the World Was Made, The Silver Shower, The Faithlessness of Sinogo, Catalina of Dumaguete, The Fall of Polobolac, The Escape of Juanita, The Anting-Anting of Manuelito, and When the Lilies Return.
