From the Publisher:

This international anthology of short fiction offers an appealing mix of classic stories from the United States and Europe, as well as an excellent selection of fiction by authors from geographical areas only nominally represented in most texts: Northern Europe, Latin America, Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific. Many stories are anthologized here for the first time. The book also includes a significant number of ethnic minority voices within the United States, many stories by women, and two complete novellas.

From the Back Cover:

THIS ANTHOLOGY OF SHORT STORIES ENCOMPASSES A LARGER GEOGRAPHICAL RANGE BOTH WESTERN AND NON-WESTERN AND HAS GREATER GENDER BALANCE THAN IS TYPICAL OF MOST SHORT-STORY ANTHOLOGIES.

It includes a diverse representation of ethnic voices from within the United States as well as less-frequently-anthologized stories by well-known writers around the world. This second edition of WORLDS OF FICTION includes both classic and contemporary stories that reflect thematic, aesthetic, and cultural variety: different styles, subjects, and points of view as well as diversity of cultural, historical, and gender perspectives. Headnotes and questions for each story provide contextual enhancement and guidelines for critical thinking and reflection.
