This is the fourth collection of the best international short stories as submitted to the One Million Stories Creative Writing Project at millionstories.net through 2012. It takes a great deal of courage to take a story and put it out there in the world, to try and make a connection. That has happened for all twenty-three of the authors featured here. Some are old hands, others have never had a story published anywhere before. That they chose us is our good fortune, that you now hold this book in your hands, is your good fortune!
You will discover stories of childhood both cursed and blessed, but all fascinating. There are tales from the end of life’s journey too, some prosaic, others quite mad, but throughout, the general flavour is positive, uplifting.
Keep a hold of this book. There are names in here you will read again, perhaps on the spine of a book in your local store, maybe on a blog, who knows?
