About the Book
Fray is the web’s original storytelling magazine, telling true stories online and off since 1996.
Fray began as a website, presenting true, first-person stories. Then it evolved into a series of live storytelling events that took place all over the world, attended by thousands of people.
Now Fray has evolved again – this time into a quarterly series of independently produced books. Each has a central storytelling theme, and includes personal stories, articles, and original art. This is the premiere issue, in a special hardbound format, published by our friends at Blurb.
The core of Fray remains unchanged. It’s about true stories. It’s about proving that extraordinary things happen to ordinary people. It’s about finding that common thread that connects us all together. It’s an invitation and a dare to get involved.
