'To fill this need, the editors present to you Kuwento: Lost Things-An Anthology of New Philippine Myths, which contains more than 30 works written by writers who engage Philippine mythology and the idea of "lost things"-and the inevitable search to remember and reshape them. These works interrogate gender norms through the aswang witch (who is known to devour pregnant women), grapple with the legacies of Spanish colonialism through the lost bululs (indigenous Ifugao sculptures), deal with fraught family relationships, struggle with the power of secrets during the World War II, and indulge the imagination in forests of banyan trees, skyscrapers, and otherworldly landscapes.' -Melissa Sipin
