From the Introduction:

The concept of One World is often a multi-colored tapestry into which

sundry, if not contending patterns can be woven. for those of us who worked

on this project, 'One World' goes beyond the everyday notion of the globe

as a physical geographic entity. Rather, we understand it as a universal idea,

one that transcends national boundaries to comment on the most prevailing

aspects of the human condition.

This attempt to redefine the borders of the world we live in through the

short story recognizes the many conflicting issues of race, language, economy,

gender and ethnicity, which separate and limit us. We readily acknowledge,

however, that regardless of our differences or the disparities in our stories, we

are united by our humanity.

We invite the reader on a personal journey across continents, countries,

cultures and landscapes, to reflect on these beautiful, at times chaotic, renditions

on the human experience. We hope the reach of this path will transcend the

borders of each story, and perhaps function as an agent of change.

Welcome to our world.
