Written exclusively by Filipinos, the stories in this anthology reflect the ability of the Filipinos in using a foreign language as a literary medium, after four decades from the introduction of English into the school system in 1901. It is claimed by competent critics that by 1955, the achievement in the Filipino short story in English had been more distinguished than the achievement in the Filipino short story in Spanish, in Tagalog, or in any other native language. It is further claimed that the present collection is more truly national than any similar anthology that could be collected of stories originally written in Pilipino or in any other native language or in Spanish. This collection has a wider geographical, ethnic, or social range than any other anthology.
