"Unity Volume 1: A Magical Realism Anthology is a collection of overtly varied short stories and poems from diverse voices. What unites them, however, is a deep visceral nature. Whether it be grief, horror, or romance, this body of work has led me a reader, enough to become an 'insider' to be able to smell the pungent air in the rain; to become the beloved; to feel the horror in the bones or to become enmeshed with the terrible pain. In my view, it's called powerful storytelling ability, where every tear, drops to tell a story, and every verse sings a poetry recital." -Mehreen Ahmed, Moirae
