"There were some entries that I didn't feel aconnection to. Maybe it was the approach or maybe the topic is something I can'trelate to due to my own experience and background, but that may be the bestthing about this anthology. That's what makes it inclusive and necessary. Thereis a story in there for everyone and an art style to suit different tastes,moods, and aesthetics. If you are looking for representation, it is in here. Weare currently in a period of history where so much is changing but resistanceagainst acceptance is still present. Works such as this, however, are a step inthe right direction." - THE BEAT
