Our first story is Dominique Cimafranca's "Twilight of the Magi", which was published in Philippine Genre Stories (2007). Two narrators teamed up to bring life to this piece -- and we have Zack Bulatao and Epok Claravall, both from Creativoices Productions, to be thankful for.
The second story is from the forthcoming PGS Crime Issue, guest-edited by F.H. Batacan. It's called "God is the Space Between", and is written by Maryanne Moll. Dulce Amor Fortunado narrates the character's harrowing ordeal.
I wish you all a Merry Christmas!
