To Whom it may concern:
There are strange doors that, once opened, can never be closed again.
Secrets and mysteries that crowd the shadows, that wail and scream at the coming of the light.
Things that were once spoken of in wary whispers by those wise enough to fear the dark.
Things called kapre and malakat, tikbalang and batibat, tiyanak and mandurugo.
There was once a man who studied these mysteries, who catalogued and chronicled the truth of their existences.
His name was Alejandro Pardo, and this book is a strange door that contains words and pages from his writings, a strange door that leads to the truths behind the layers of rumor and misconception.
