From Scout Media comes A Journey of Words—the second volume in an ongoing short story anthology series featuring authors from all over the world.
In this installation, the authors will lead the reader to destinations unknown; from the heartbreak of driving to visit a loved one for the last time, to the far-reaches of outer space, to mysterious islands inhabited by long-forgotten spirits. You will learn how deadly a trip to a greenhouse can be, the perils involved in delivering the mail, and a hard lesson about how shiny new Volkswagen Beetles should not be trusted. These stories of travelling and journeys will touch your heart, send shivers down your spine, and make you root for the underdog.
Whether to be enlightened, entertained, or momentarily caught up in another world, these selections convey the true spirit of the short story.
You can pre-order A Journey of Words on Scout Media’s website here.
