The road has long been a metaphor for life's journeys. In Road Story, writers tell of traveling down an unknown road, taking time off to experience the unfamiliar, curious and open to a colorful or frightening route.

The characters have abandoned their everyday lives. Some immerse themselves in other cultures. In stories about grief, a woman recalls climbing a mountain with her recently deceased lover, and a young man revisits memories of a drowning on the beach. In stories of healing, a young female character disparages herself in an unhealthy comparison to another more seasoned female traveler, while another woman overcomes fear exacerbated by the crime news keeping her homebound.

This isn't to say location holds no fascination. Readers ride an oily, chugging passenger train, meditate in the opulent vegetation on a Tibetan mountain, and run through the streets of Barcelona.

Authors include Anthony Bain, Lois Barr, Glenn A. Bruce, Laurie Doyle, Sharon Frame Gay, Chad L. Hutchison, Steve Karas, Susan Kuchinskas, Jackie Davis Martin, Neil Mathison, Calvin Mills, Ellen Birkett Morris, Ray Morrison, Carol Murphy, and Nancy Werking Poling.
