From the Back Cover
It was like somebody was trying to tell me something, or several wereanyway.
The nineteen stories by nine authors in this anthology were sent to mein one month, but are as varied as their writers. The stipulation wasthat Asia or an Asian had to feature strongly in the story. We havestories featuring Cambodia, China, Laos, Malaysia, Pakistan, Thailand,the USA and Vietnam, by Asian and non-Asian authors who live in or comefrom Britain, Malaysia, Thailand, the USA and Vietnam.
Some of these writers are well-known as writers, some are better knownin other spheres, some have written a lot before and been published inthe traditional sense, others are travelling the Indie Publishing pathand for yet others this is the very first time they or you will haveseen their stories in print of any kind.
You can read more about each author by visiting the web sites that theyhave given after their stories. I thoroughly recommend that you do thisas what you will find out about the authors will surprise you, Iguarantee it.
Finally, my thanks go out to all the authors who have made this bookpossible, we hope that you will enjoy it and give each writer yourfeedback about their stories or write to me at the publisher's about the book as a whole.
Best Wishes,Owen Jones
