Short Stories and Poetry: The Way of Transcendence
In this collection of short stories, international authors bring you their best works.
We are all, at the base, human. What defines us, what differentiates us, are the stories we tell each other and ourselves. What we believe to be true, and hold as our anchors in this world of turmoil, in the end unite us and divide us. Transcendence makes us look beyond what we perceive, whether the human condition, or merely our animal nature. We are, each and every day, presented with choices. How we handle them, overcome them, or even succumb to them, is ultimately a reflection of that nature. These stories and poems come from around the globe, and are written as a collaboration in and of transcendence.
How it came to be
Transcendence very nearly did NOT come to be an amazing collection of short stories. The inceptor one day vanished without a trace. Left with a choice, this group of authors took the resolution to take their work to fruition, and did so.
This is what transcendence means to us, and we are reminded of our struggle in our works, and the decisions we make, for better or ill.
