I picked up my copy of the latest in the “Best American Travel Writing” anthology series this week and was thrilled to see some familiar names listed. Four World Hum stories were included in this year’s notable selections: The Roads Between Us: A Journey Across Africa, by Frank Bures; A Pilgrimage to SkyMall, by Bill Donahue; Lover’s Moon, by Pico Iyer; and The Sexual Lives of Sri Lankans, by Hannah Tennant-Moore.

World Hum contributors Peter Hessler and Tom Swick were also included for stories published elsewhere. Congratulations to all.

Pico Iyer is a perennial favorite travel writer of mine and World Hum always inspires.
