Mga Agos sa Disyerto (Currents in the Desert) is an influential collection of 25 short stories written in Filipino. It is considered by many critics and Filipino literature historians as a landmark in the history of Philippine fiction because of its links with the tradition of social consciousness of the Rizal novels and its departures in method and temper from the writing of earlier generations. It was originally published in 1964 (1965?) containing the works of five leading Filipino short story writers: Efren Abueg, Dominador Mirasol, Rogelio Ordoñez, Edgardo M. Reyes, and Rogelio Sicat. The anthology is considered as one of the best books that shaped new writing in Filipino.
