All aboard? Now, sit back and enjoy these stories that are widely different from each other. But their writers are bound by the common threads of passion for writing and the need to tell a story. The worlds they paint swing between the practical and the illogical, the obvious and the subtle, the humdrum and the dramatic, the mundane and the esoteric and the sedate and the thrilling. A page-turner of a book—from exceptionally gifted writers.
