Ghost stories are commonplace in traditional Filipino culture, with virtually every family having their own personal accounts of encounters with the supernatural. Passed on from generation to generation, these tales act as a bridge to the past, to a time lost or nearly forgotten.
Full of ghostly encounters with all manner of things eerie and terrifying in the Philippines, Filipino Ghost Stories
is a collection of creepy tales that have been told in the author's family for generations. The book delivers terrific entertainment—and some good chills—for those interested in the Philippines and aficionados of the supernatural alike.
