Books, Briefly: WonderLust: Stories by Nikki Alfar

Kay reviews books in 100 words or less.


Nikki Alfar’s WonderLust: Stories can kinda pass off as a Neil Gaiman short story collection. Not one of his best, but quite good nonetheless. I don’t really have anything bad to say about it. WonderLust is a pretty enjoyable dip into Philippine speculative fiction. Some of Alfar’s ideas piqued my interest, definitely, truly. In particular, I liked the stories about a literally doe-eyed princess, a god under the protection of his skeptical yet dependable bodyguard, and an Edo-era mecha. If you’re just looking for something interesting and undemanding to read, take WonderLust out for a spin. Tangkilikin ang sariling atin.
