Voice from the Planet edited by Charles Degelman

An eclectic collection of short essays from every corner of the globe, this anthology follows its successful predecessor, the first Voice from the Planet. True to its raison d’etre, the anthology varies in range, showing the differences inherent throughout the world both in diversity and in writers; authors are both¬†seasoned,¬†and neophytes, and the stories cover everything from the devastation of surviving 9/11 to the mystery that is the Bulgarian fire dancers. Expertly edited by Harvard alumni, these essays and in particular, their authors serve a lofty purpose in that any proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to the international medical humanitarian organization, Doctors Without Borders. Knowing that makes the reading all the richer and it is already a very rich experience, each story as diverse as a fingerprint and well worth the time taken to read this interesting volume.
