Like Volume I, this book includes 20 short stories by 20 authors set in 20 countries. It’s still a dangerous world (the theme of Volume I), but in these stories we also discover that it’s a mysterious world. What’s going on in that hotel in Egypt? Does that Korean monk really have the ability to predict the future? What power does that shopkeeper in Panama have? And where does the little Turkish boy get his great strength?
