This anthology gathers fifteen short stories, each with a heading that describes the incident, feeling or idea from whence it grew. It can be as innocuous as a fortune cookie message or momentous as a military helicopter strafing a jeep of rebels. This may pique the curiosity of one who wonders how stories are made, for they are indeed made from materials of which words are only a part. The words construct the fiction, whereas the germinal elements constitute the reality, the factual sense that the incidents did happen, feelings did register and ideas evolved.
