About the Book

Woman With Horns and Other Stories is the first short story collection by Cecilia Manguerra Brainard. Called "a welcome addition to Filipiniana" by the Manila Times, the stories draw from historical and contemporary sources. Many of these stories set in mythical Ubec, Philippines, explore the clash of Philippine culture with foreign influences that reached the archipelago during different historical periods.

What Others Say

Referring to the collection, author Bienvenido Santos said, "Fascinating stories that take us back to a Philippine past...against a backdrop of legend and superstition.. the East and the West meet and it's no big deal...Fun reading!"

"My favorite is THE BLUE-GREEN CHIFFON DRESS; and of course I like Ubec...It is quite the right place for Gemma, a fictional creation after my heart...." says author N.V.M. Gonzalez.
